Know Your Limits This came from a book that a good friend gave me it's called God's Little Book of Calm and it really helps me! This is the one that I think was aimed at me by my friend as I have been known to push myself a little too much! Those who are happily successful in life are willing to work hard but know their limits. For such people work is not everything: they know how to relax, prize close friendsand spend quality time with their families.

I know what you mean about pushing yourself to the limits. Hubby is always telling me off for doing too much , he keeps saying " you can do that tomorrow " but tomorrow I will worry because there is more to do , I worry about everyone else yet I have carpal tunnel in both hands , Asthma and osteoarthritis yet I just get on with it , when we have a family to look after pal what else can we do ? I so wish I didn't worry but if that's the way we are it's not easy to change xx

ha ha ha! Cos when you drink you forget to try to remember what you've forgotten anyway! Seriously don't remember my limits on lots of things! Think my friend was scolding me cos I'm waiting for back surgery and suffer a lot from bad pain and exhaustion but sometimes I push myself a little bit and have kinda collapsed a couple of times so I really have to learn to remember my limits! Did you know drink was a really good painkiller? xxx

You said it: those who are happily successful.... I´ve met so many people who are successful, but they don´t even have the time or peace of mind to analyse if they are actually happy. Most of them don´t spend "quality" time with their family. There are frequent interruptions because the cell phone is constantly ringing. It´s important to disconnect now and again. If not, how can you enjoy your success?

Hi Mummymo, yes I think that everyone should know their limits when to stop, I have a book called this as well but I do not know if it is the same book or not?? yes work is not everything and you should be there for others as well in regarding to teaching them their limits also I believe. I agree with you completely.
