“I can only please one person per day, Today I choose me! “ by Kacey Woodliff
You are great at helping, providing, listening, supporting, giving, saying "yes" and so on..... but do you have a "disease to please"? Are you stressed out, maxed out, burnt out, pooped out and well just plain "out"?If your choices are draining you, this is a red flag ladies and gents! You could be committing a very serious crime! Ask yourself, are your every day choices costing you what matters most in your life?
Kacey is also a Nationally Registered EMT, EMS Training Officer and CPR/First Aid Instructor. She is also a mem-ber of the Nebraska CISM team.
