There are times when you have so much going on in your life, and around you, that you can’t find time to deal with anything. So you keep moving. Move. Move. Go. Go. If you keep going, keep reaching, then you will rise above all of it and nothing will be able to stop you .
That’s how we think at times. Then, before we know it, life has turned into one, big, complicated dance between the things we have to do, want to do, and what we’re pressured into doing. Even the best dancers cannot keep going forever. No matter how you pace yourself, the human body will eventually run out of steam and pass out.
Take the time to recognize your own limits: mentally, physically, and emotionally. It’s okay to take a step back. It’s okay to turn down people and ‘opportunities’ when you already have a full plate. Life has a rhythm and, if you’re going to dance, make sure it’s to a beat you created.
