Men do not let anyone seize their estates, and if there is the slightest dispute about their boundaries they rush to stones and arms; but they allow others to encroach on their lives - why, they themselves even invite in those willing to take over their lives. You will find no one willing to share out his money; but to how many does each of us divide up his life!

How good are you at setting boundaries on other people's access to your time?

The picture shows two kereru (New Zealand wood pigeons) in a tree. It was taken from our living-room window. If you want a link to the subject of the post I guess it is a reminder to look out the window from time to time.
