The question isn’t whether it is good --
but is it the best use of my time, energies, and abilities?
How can I feel a sense of purpose in my life
while not becoming stressed with excessive details?
Though I sincerely want to help others,
is all this help of equal value?
Am I seeking approval and acceptance
by trying to do more than I’m able?
How do I set bounds so that I keep to my goals
and not get pulled off course by others wishes?
What must I do and not do
to lessen the stress I feel each day
and improve my health?
I pray for answers
