Life these days has become a tangle of commitments and obligations. I am having to temporarily make changes to cover all bases. Am I okay with this? Yes. Why you might ask? Because a very good friend of mine once said: "If you are going to put your name to something, then do it so your name is not tarnished".
When something is important or feels that it will have impact in the end there is more of a chance you can squeeze it into your busy life.
My activities include committees at school, synagogue, and in the community. I am also in the infancy of a federal grant program in the area of science.
As I review my list I have begun to wonder what others do beyond their scheduled work day. Do you volunteer? Have second (or third) jobs? Do you care for a family member in need?
What is it that makes you, you?
Help me to know I am not an island unto my self of having trouble saying no to worthy endeavors!
