I'm not here to build a mediocre life.
Recently, I was told I need to "ruthlessly prioritize." I've never fancied myself as one who has trouble saying no to things, but perhaps that is prideful. Today, I was a no-show at a play I had already paid for and promised to attend. But I just couldn't. It has been a nonstop April thus far and will continue to be, and... I just need to stop.
For an evening.
This weekend, I will travel to see Marquita in Philly. We aren't the deepest of friends, but she is a dear friend whom I want to know even better. I have no time for superficial friendships, but it is absolutely worth the investment to cultivate deeper relationships.
I have ruthlessly prioritized. It's delivering the news which is hard.
