Too Many Resources…

Sometimes even a good thing…requires too many of Jane Carrollyour resources! ~Bertha

 

Seems as though…Bertha…has slept in…well…it is the first day back to work after the long weekend…so I guess she’s entitled…anyway…instead of relating how the laundry detergent bottle perched on the top of the garbage can reminds her of my life…she said to go with a Berthaism

Oh…and this one is one of my favorites…

There was a time in my life…when I thought that it didn’t matter how much of my time…energy…and money…something took…if it was a good thing…then I had to do it…I couldn’t say no…

Now…that didn’t just apply to someone asking me to serve on a committee… or donate to their favorite cause…it also applied to me…and the things that I want to do…

That trip to the Tibet…would be an awesome thing…but…it would take more resources than I need to give it…even business activities can take more resources…time and money…than I have…and…relationships…whether they are with family…friends…or that special someone…can demand more than I can give at times…

Bertha…says it’s about living my truth…honestly looking at the resources I have available and determining…whether to say…yes…or…no…or…even…an honest…I can’t do that…but I can do this…

Now…suddenly…Bertha…is singing in her…worst…Kenny Rogers’s voice…you gotta know when to hold them…evidently she’s awake now…and this post is a wrap…I think it would exceed my resources to listen to her any further…

Success in Action…

Personal success…can only be measured…using Jane Carrollyour own stick! ~Bertha

It would be easy…way too easy…to compare my accomplishments with others…I mean…I’m a writer…I have only to look at the latest New York Times Bestseller List…to notice that…my books…aren’t on it…

It would be easy…to drive by fancy houses…and compare mine to them…

And…there’s a long list of things that I could compare about my life and others…from wardrobes to relationships…and seemingly…end up with the short end of the stick…

But…Bertha…reminded me…time and time again…until it finally stuck… that just because…others seem to have more outward success than I do…it doesn’t mean anything…

She says my measure of success…comes from living my truth…from honoring the person that I am…and she reminds me…that being…happy…is success in action…
