In my previous blog Go with the flow – Part 1 (19 September 2017) I reflected on how difficult this used to be for me to do.
One thing that helped me learn to let go more easily was the following "Superwoman Commandments" copied out in beautiful calligraphy writing (I think they apply to men too!) I found this in a charity shop, and I just love the thought that someone took the time to copy them out and frame them for themselves. They are prominently displayed so that I see them several times a day.
1 Thy time hast value... thou shalt not surrender all the hours of the days and nights to others.
2 Thou needst not achieve perfection in all things.
3 All things asked of thee need not be done.
4 Thou shalt learn to say "No".
5 Thou shalt attend to thine own needs as thou wouldst tend to the needs of others.
6 Thou shalt lay a portion of thy burdens upon others, not keep unto thyself the doing of it all.
7 Thou shalt give time first unto those thou lovest and that which matters most in thy life.
8 Fix thine eyes upon what is right, not upon what is wrong or what passeth with the moment.
Whosoever followeth these principles will not sacrifice all on the altar of superwomanhood, but will secure unto herself and her loved ones joy and fulfilment.
Which one speaks to you most and why?
