Lately I've been feeling as if something was wrong. Very wrong. I have been feeling stifled in just about everything I've been doing from cleaning my house to reading my scriptures to writing. Why is this?
I know that my priorities have all changed since Thanksgiving. Holidays, kids not going to school and vacation did that to me! I no longer read scriptures first thing after sending the kids off to school. I stopped practicing the music I lead for church as much as I should. I stopped keeping up with my household chores and was available for my kids only when they needed me. I wasn't happy! I spent most of my time doing things like editing, blogging, updating my FB, visiting everyone's blogs.
I have decided to press the 'reset' button and go back to the way I handled things before chaos snuck into my life.
I feel refreshed and even surprised that I had allowed my priorities to shift around to where the most important of things were at the bottom. For me this is the way it works best: Heavenly Father, Family, ME (writing, drawing, singing, dancing--whatever my hobbies are). I feel fulfilled and happy when I do it in this order.
How do you keep balance in your life and stick to it?
