This reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. Not that I am running around in empathetic beatnik joints. :)

At this time of year all vows and promises are released. That is why there are so many vow renewals following Yom Kippur. There could be a lot more healthy relationships if we did this more, especially grudge holding against those who may have broke a promise or a commitment....the release of both parties... So right now, I am sizing up personal and business commitments, seeing what I need to renew and keep doing and what I need to RELEASE and let go of.
There are a lot of things i WANT to do, but what things are beneficial for me to do?
Especially with the weird health issues right now. Tachycardia, Pneumothorax....
I am giving myself permission to say no to things.
