It seems that some days I manage to have things in balance, I juggle spending time with children, spending time with my husband, cleaning, running errands, organizing coupons, callings, etc in a mostly prioritized and smooth manner. But then there are days that some things fall out of place, my priorities fall out of whack, and I just simply do not function with balance. I find myself often juggling with full force one of my responsibilities and for a time I neglect everything else. I might get all motivated in the cleaning department and neglect my children (not good). I might give my children my undivided attention and the cleaning is none (not good either). This can happen in all aspects of my life but you get the idea. I definitely am in need of a balancing act check.
To help along the way my husband has urged and I have accepted a new addition to our weeks, "Me Time". Every Wednesday I am going to get some alone time which I am enjoying at this very moment. I seldom take time for myself away from the kidlets and often reach the end of my rope and this will hopefully aid in adding balance to my life. What a peaceful and rejuvenating feeling! Yea for my first official "Me Time"!
And now back to business, how do you keep your life in balance? What do you do to make sure you focus on ALL things that matter and require attention and time?
