Going Overboard

“… we have been making unreasonable demands upon ourselves…” 12&12 p.76
I think it’s really important to give 100% to everything. But occasionally, in my desire to make everyone happy, to fix all the problems and have everything be just right, I can go overboard. In order to stay centered today, I’ll do my very best, while at the same time being mindful not to overcommit, overwork, or overreach. When I stop placing unreasonable demands upon me or others, when I get out of the expectation business and instead stay in the attitude of gratitude, ILML!
