On The Line | No. 30

Happy Friday friends! How's your week been? Can you believe Christmas is less than a week away?! And 2017 is two weeks away...I feel like once Thanksgiving hits, if you blink you'll miss the rest the year because it goes by so fast. 

What do you think of today's On The Line words of wisdom?

You Can Do Anything But Not Everything. I find today's quote very appropriate as we wrap up 2016. I tend to have love/hate feelings towards this time of year. I love all holiday cheer & spirit that's everywhere and spending time with family and friends. However, I don't like the nagging voice or to-do list reminding of the things I didn't get done this year. So I try to scramble to see how I'm going to get it done which leads to me getting stressed and overwhelmed and then I get cranky. Nobody wants that ;) So when I stumbled on this quote last week it really made me feel better because it's impossible to do everything. I mean I know that but a reminder never hurts. It doesn't matter how minor or lofty your goals or to-do list is, it's almost impossible to do it all. So I'm embracing the fact that I don't have to do everything and in the most dramatic sense, no one is going to die or care if I don't except myself. So accept it, do what you can, and enjoy the rest the holidays. I think that this is a good thought process as we enter 2017. Learning to prioritize better and not biting off more than you can chew.
