I hear ya on that one. I was just saying last week to my coworker that I've been doing a great job not volunteering to do other people's work, or remind people of what they're supposed to be doing, or following up on things to be done that ultimately involve me, and not trying to anticipate the next step in any process. Its a lot more sane when I mind my own business. If it isn't important to someone else, someone who is actually responsible for the work and the reward, then it isn't important to me.
I'm a helper and a giver, and its hard to take a step back, but for my own sanity, I'm glad I recognized that I don't need to be "the fixer."
Is my glass half full? I don't know, but I am trying to make lemonade out of lemons after a very stressful 10 months both physically, in my husband's health, in my job, in our finances and in our home, which is now for sale. I'm trying to see the good in all of it, and I do believe I've got the lemonade recipe handy!
