Knowing Your Limits
“We just got invited on a double date tomorrow night” my girlfriend, Kaelia speaks. “Oh great, sounds wonderful, let’s do it!” I respond. She pushes back: “Well, since we have both had a crazy week, do you think it’s a good idea to be out again tomorrow night?”. This got me thinking about the fact that I’m slightly sick, a tad sleep deprived, and had just spent over 30 hours in a classroom within the span of 5 days. After pondering what Kaelia said I respond, “Yeah, you’re right”.
Knowing your own limits is important. I used to live such an active lifestyle that I did not have time for myself or any of the most important relationships of my life. I would say yes to every opportunity that came my way and my own body was the consequence. Feeling beaten down all of the time should not be normal.
