We have all probably heard the statement, "Don't bite of more than you can chew." It means that you should not take on too many tasks or responsibilities. As a result of taking on too much, you may fail at one or more of the tasks. Then you'll experience stress due to this decision.
In societies where people are actively encouraged to take on a lot of responsibility, people often "bite off more than they can chew." Usually they are reluctant to ask for help because they fear being looked upon as weak or a failure.
I cannot tell you how many times I've done this. I say "yes," then weep from fear, frustration and weariness.
Well, chickies, when it comes to GOOD stuff in life, I say, let's BITE away!! I'm going to sink my teeth into good causes I believe in. I'm taking a bite out of healthy, happy things this week. Anyone wish to join me? Whatta ya say? Okay, none of the images today are exactly "healthy," but they're fun favorites of mine. Anyone else tend to "bite off more than they can chew?" Photos from top:caramels with sprinkled with sea salt; gummy bears, strawberry Twizzlers and the granola, which was a "guilt offering." :)
