is my constant goal. Not just at the beginning of a new year, ALWAYS. I believe, specifically for me, my grand scheme or purpose in this life is to live it with balance. It hasn’t come easy. I find when I do have a balance, I am much happier.
- Time with my Maker
- Time for me
- Time with my husband
- Time with my kids
- Time with friends
- Time for rest/sleep
- Time for nourishment
- Time for work/service inside the home
- Time for organizing
Components of a good balanced week:
- Exercise Time
- Creative Time
- Service outside the home
- Church Worship
- Everything mentioned for balanced day.
I found the following picture on Flickr.com thanks to Patty Anne. I was looking for a good photo of balance scales to add to this post and came across her genius picture. This is what Patty wrote below it:
My one word resolution for the year is balance.
This year I seek balance in myself, my days, my home, my relationships, in my life.
I often feel like a high-wire act, balancing on that thin line riding a unicycle holding onto opposing priorities with a couple of people propped precariously upon my shoulders while life tosses more at me from all directions, smiling the whole time saying “I’m fine, really, I’m fine”.
I completely agree with Patty.
Work Smarter, NOT Harder,
