Pick Your Battles

The art of being wise is the art of knowing what to overlook.

~ William James

When we are trying to cope with our losses and/crisis, we can easily get caught up in every nuance or upbraid that other humans tend to offer to each other. I have watched countless people with disabilities and pain try to defend their rights and right the wrongs of all of mankind. It wears me out just thinking about theĀ emotions and energy wasted.

Today’s Life Coach Action Plan: Just for today, I will be selective and sane in choosing my battles today. Honey draws more flies than does vinegar. I will lead and teach lovingly.

Note: Please comment below and let me know how this workds for you.
