This has been a busy summer. Having a second child and keeping up with this blog has made life hectic. What is supposed to be a relaxing time off at home this summer has been anything but. So I blogged recently about setting blogging limits. And you know what? I feel a lot better this week now that I have a plan. FOCUS.
It is easy, isn’t it, to get sidetracked and focus on things that are not all that important? The life I want to live for myself and my family is not a life of busy internet blog work. It took me a little while to figure it out but I have figured out that for me “living your best life” means practicing these three simple (yet so difficult) things.
Living Your Best Life in Three Simple Steps:
1. Time for myself – since starting a weight loss program I am working on getting me healthy – back to a good weight but also realizing why I am eating the foods I was eating and the cues to eat poorly.
2. Time for spiritual growth – God is not interested in the motions or being of a Christian. He just wants us – fully. This is one area that I don’t want to be pushing aside.
3. Quality time with family – my family does not want me on the internet all day. So having a plan and sticking to it is important. I can blog at night and get things done after they go to bed. With homeschool starting again and time with an ever growing baby it is easy to not pay attention, or to only pay attention half way. My family, my husband – they don’t deserve that.
I want to be in it all the way! I want to live my best life!
