Rushing/Frenzy

Anything worth doing is worth doing frantically.
— New proverb

We women who do too much find the ending of an old year and the beginning of a new year to be a difficult time. There is always the temptation to try to "tidy up" all our loose ends as the old year closes. We fall into the trap of believing that it is possible to get our entire life "caught up" before starting a new year, and we are determined to do it.

Also, there is the temptation to set up an elaborate set of resolutions for the coming year so that we can, at last, get it right. As workaholics, we tend to be very hard on ourselves: nothing less than perfection is enough. Hopefully, on this first day of the year, we will be able to remember that we are perfect just as we are.


I Hope for the willingness to live this year in a way that will be gentle to myself...one day at a time.

After my husband committed sucicide, this book helped saved my sanity, on a daily basis. I had not read it for awhile and ran into it again the other day. It was like a gift that I needed in my life at this time. I have recommended it to so many people in the past and will continue to do so. Purchased in 1990-91 I look forward to buying the anniversary edition. Thank you so much for this book. Susan
