Just popping in this evening with a few thoughts on relationships and people in the midst of life that can be so full. (By the way, the picture is dinner with some of my sweet Mexico friends during the time I was living there. I felt like it went with what I’m talking about here, and I miss them, so that’s why!)
Do you ever feel like you just don’t have time for something? One concept has been revolutionizing my world this week:
Sometimes we simply need to do the very things we have the least time for.
Like going swimming with my little siblings today. I didn’t “feel” like I had time. But I was able to get off work, and rearrange my schedule to make the other days this week fuller (yay!), and just go do it!
Sometimes it’s gotta be people over whatever else is screaming to be done. I’m not talking about neglecting one’s responsibilities. There are times when I say “no” to people because of responsibilities or commitments and you will have to as well. But as much as possible I want people to be priority in my life.
I want to prioritize the important as well as the urgent.
And it is a balancing act! But I believe it is possible. Is prioritizing hard? Yes! Messy? Often. But it’s part of life, so those of you that are young (like me)……we may as well practice now and learn to do work AND relationships well- to be dependable employees (or business owners) AND the there-for-you kind of friend and sister/brother/whatever!
Cheers to you all! I’m off to get some sleep and get up early for another day of the balancing act! What could be more exciting?
