It is an understatement to say that my days are full. (I'm guessing yours are too.) Granted, I feel incredibly blessed that my busyness happens here, at home, alongside Pete and our kids. It's real and satisfying – but it's still allot. Balancing two children, homeschooling, keeping house, preparing meals, running a home-based business, and writing and managing a blog successfully keeps my days full. I love it all (well, except cleaning the bathroom) but sometimes a break would be awesome.
I rarely go off alone to rebalance myself. But I need it. We all do.
Last night I whittled out a sliver of time for myself and took a sunset walk – alone – while Pete put the kids to bed. I saw my neighborhood through fresh eyes and drank up the silence.
Today's goal is to stay away from this computer, laugh, play, and enjoy what the work of my days is made of. I'm going to maintain balance. I have a list made for what we'll get done. It's balanced I think. Some errands, some projects, some hanging with friends, some eating of bread and honey (Lupine added that one).
After that I'm heading to the sewing room to finish the project I started last night.
How do you keep your life in balance?
