Peace Perspective XIII: Too Many Tabs

Please tell me there are others that connect with this pin!

Peace Perspective XIIIt’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I’m an organized person, but lately I haven’t been double checking things before I commit. Which has resulted in a lot of fun activities, but a little too much driving around.

Last weekend I was visiting friends in the twin cities and they said “didn’t we see a picture you posted at Zorbaz today?” Why yes you did. I went to spin, went on a run, ate pizza, showered, and then drove down here.

Its good to busy, its good to get out and see different groups of friends. But its not okay to over schedule and run yourself ragged.

I signed up for the TC Looney Challenge months ago, and last week I realized I didn’t have a friend’s wedding on my calendar, I knew it was in October, and not the last weekend, but the other three weekends were possible. I thought the bride had wanted the first weekend, but wasn’t sure if she was able to book the wedding for that weekend…

One quick text confirmed what I was afraid. Over-committed. Obviously the Wedding is 1,000x more important than the race, but now the question arises…What do I do with these races. So if you’re up for a challenge, I just might be willing to part with my packet. Let’s talk.

How many tabs do you have open? When do you realize its time to pull back a little?



  1. Well, my internet browser currently has 12 tabs open, due to writing my dissertation 🙂

    I completely agree with you though– I get into this mentality where it’s like “I HAVE TO DO EVERYTHING” and then I end up not being able to give 100% to my commitments. This spring I’ve really worked on saying no, and it has made a world of difference in my success and happiness.

    1. I can totally relate! I try to get out and be more social and then end up neglecting other parts of my life or being so tired because I slept 4 hours before a 7 hours shift a work, bad idea, so now i’m working on getting off social media and enjoy the outside world so as not to overcommit.

  2. I can definitely relate, although lately I’ve been successfully making an effort to make fewer plans and have definitely pulled back. Also, I really want to take your Looney Challenge packet but I think it’s just a little too close to my due date — but it’s SO tempting!

  3. Yeah, I totally understand what you mean with this one. I have lived a VERY chill life for the past year and a half, and now I am trying to squeeze everything that I DIDN’T do into the next two months. And it’s already driving me crazy. I’m also in a wedding and I wish I could do all of the festivities, but it looks like I’ll just be able to be there for the rehearsal dinner and such. Wish I could be in multiple places at once!

  4. i was just having this conversation with a friend – i think spring weather makes us all so excited that we book book book and then wonder what happened to all the time… but it sounds like you’re having fun!!
