    I have learned this one the hard way over the years. Now before I say yes to something big I try (still not perfect) to sit down with my time block calendar and see what I could give up to make time to start something new. I also pray and ask God to show me where I am wasting time on the unimportant and help me to then spend it on the important.

  • Lora C says:

    WOW!!! I really needed to read that and plan to read your new book!!! I just found this out the hard way and am going to have to get out of something that I agreed to without thinking it through or looking at my schedule. I am going to commit your quote to memory or at least write it down and refer back to it. Thanks once again for helping me.

  • So true. Excited about your new book! Sounds like it will be chock full of great advice.

  • Jenn says:

    Congrats on your new book! I asked for your first for Christmas in 2012 (which I loved), and will have to ask for this one, too!

  • Miranda says:

    excited to read this!! January is too far away!!!

  • Sara Furlong says:

    Looking forward to reading this, Crystal. We realized recently we were in a sort of survival mode and we’ve been taking steps to simplify.

  • Didi says:

    So true! As I get older, I say no more and more to time wasters, so I can do the things I love and be with the people I love. I lost my youngest daughter 4 years ago, (to murder, she was 19) and the aftermath and grief has taught me to live in the moment, and appreciate all that is around me. I tell people I love them on a daily basis. Thanks for your great site, looking forward to your book. God and goddess blessings, light and love.

      Crystal – this quote was such a BLESSING for me to read yesterday! I shared it with a co-worker today as well. Thanks for all the helpful information you share!
