This is one of those weeks where I pulled in so many different directions. The people-pleaser in me wants to be in every meeting, conversation, coffee-time, etc. to make people happy. But I'm proud of myself for choosing priorities (for now the priority is quality-control editing on Buzz--Quarter 3). That means saying no or "later" to others.
It's okay. It just isn't possible to please everyone--and have a life. (OK...I am thinking I'll work some this weekend to please a few.) But as a pattern, it helps to try to prioritize all the things I'm juggling and just say no every now and then.
How do you juggle everything in your children's ministry?
