A Weekly Comfort: Just


A Weekly Comfort: Just

You face situations that require an immediate action, an urgent decision, an intense conversation.

All of which makes you want to scream:

Could you just give me a break?

Could you just give me a minute?

Could you just leave me alone for once and figure this out on your own?

But it's just you, with your broad shoulders and capable hands and common-sense wisdom.

Except you're not just you.

You are resilient and tenacious and creative. And, when others come to you because of who you are, you don't have to scream. You can simply say, "I need a break." "I need some time." "I need some space."

Others may need you. You can make sure your needs remain a priority. And, that's a justice you deserve.

You are just wonderful.

Thank you for making time and for always being true! This is great! Just remember ... you are just wonderful!


This is good. So often it feels like you're getting pulled in so many directions and trying to keep so many balls in the air. It's tough to balance. Thanks for the reminder.
