Okay, so technically today is now the 17th since it’s 12:55am…. but really, this counts as my post for the 16th since I haven’t gone to bed yet.
(and now I realize that I hardly ever sleep from one day into the next, I usually go to bed and wake up all in the same day…. not good)
ANYWAY, not much to report today other than my sneaky sister in law coaxed me back to FB today with the guise of wanting my opinion on something. 😉 😆 Have to say I’m glad because I was missing my peeps!!! Doing a week off is SO MUCH HARDER than the 40 days for Lent last year. I remember then that the first week was the hardest, and after that it was cake.
I have really been feeling more and more like I know the direction I’m supposed to go as a mom/wife/person in the next year…. and truthfully, I can’t WAIT for this year of volunteering to be over so I can put all my energy into refocusing. As I was asked today “why do you have to be such a black and white person?”…… and truly, it’s just in me to be that way. Always have been. Even in this. I’m not good at focusing on mulitple things at once, and I keep feeling the tug to pull my focus from one area and realign it on another. More homebased.
I have a friend who I’ve been watching lately when I’m hanging out with her at her house and I keep thinking “she totally is awesome at this” and I think about how much I want to be like that. So then I started looking at how we are different. I have outside committments. She doesn’t. Hers is soley her family and being excellent at taking care of it.
I need to realign my committments. And I can’t wait until I finish out one committment, and exchange it for something that I feel God is personally leading me to…….
