Why is it so very hard to find the balance in life? I have been working at this since June last year when I started my Less is More series & I still can’t say that I lead a balanced life. I have achieved balance with FaceBook which has been amazing – I have taken back a huge portion of my life by doing that. I have sorted out my priorities which is a great guide when making decisions. “No” has become an easy word for me to say where before I found it almost impossible for me to say no to people. I am enjoying my life & am pursuing my dreams yet I still feel that my life is unbalanced. There are days when I find I am not spending enough time with my children, days when I don’t take care of Eric’s needs & days when I just plain don’t take care of myself! These are my top priorities which I have worked so hard to keep on top but yet I can’t achieve the balance I desire. Any suggestions… do I need to cut out the things I love doing like my role as executive pastor at church or do I need to stop writing songs & singing in the band? Perhaps I need to stop writing this blog or just ditch the computer completely as this is still where I spend most of my time despite numerous efforts not to. I really want to write a couple of books too but let’s not even go there I should focus on cutting things out not adding things to my already crazy busy life.
One idea comes to mind – Christine Caine’s book Can I Have And Do It All, Please? I am off to buy myself a copy and see what I can come up with – would you like a copy too? I am going to pick up an extra copy for one of you – if you would like a copy simply leave me a comment sharing what you are struggling to balance in your life at the moment!
