My good friend Havilah Cunnington recently shared on her Instagram about the pain of choosing to turn down a huge opportunity because it conflicted with her boys’ first days back in school.
I so appreciated Havilah’s transparency on this. Especially sharing about how sometimes, when you say no to an opportunity, it doesn’t come back around.
The truth is, we can’t do everything. Sometimes we can’t do everything because we literally don’t have the time and energy.
But sometimes we can’t do everything because something that’s great has to give way to something that is essential.
Living into our values means there will be trade-offs. And sometimes those trade-offs are not easy to accept.
