    Thank you for sharing this. I’m reminded of Julia Cameron’s words. If you are unfamiliar, she writes and teaches creative workshops (“The Artist’s Way” is the first in the series). People who pester you make me think of her term “crazymakers”. Nobody needs them. As for me, I’m passionately rewriting a short story series at the detriment of meeting the demands of a needy friend (read crazymaker). I also let housekeeping suffer but my partner doesn’t seem to mind, probably because I’ve haven’t been this happy in a long time.

      Darla – thanks for talking about Julia Cameron and The Artist’s Way – of course I’m familiar with her work. I’m looking forward to reading your short story series. I’ve tried to find your blog but your gravatar doesn’t lead to it. Could you fix it so that I can visit you too.
      Sure – housekeeping can always suffer – writing and what makes you happy is far more important.

  2. It sounds like you have made peace with a lot of the things that stress so many of us out. Good thoughts!

    Must be nice to have a little less stress. I take on too much just to please others and it causes me so much stress. But I also fall into the trap over and again. Well done to you! 😏

  4. Very true Kalpana Ji. Very true indeed. Heartfelt thanks for reminding this invaluable lesson of life.

    I love how you’ve taken a simple thing such as sending pictures we’ve taken to make such a pertinent point of reassessing our lives. This was a good read, Kalpana!

  6. The irritation of getting reminded. That’s the most annoying thing and I always prefer to complete tasks just for not being nagged. The ‘should’ thing is there inside me, but as I’m getting older, i’m learning to ignore it, at least for not-so-important things.

    Two positive notes not giving up and finishing what you started can be so stressful at time…I liked the example of a dragging relation but keeping on with it because you are taught not to give up 🙂 I do things that give me peace and prioritise accordingly 🙂 Loved the topic Kalpana 🙂
