Since sharing my blog, a few people have asked me how I have the time. The truth is that when I made the commitment to myself to resume a healthy lifestyle and share my thoughts and journey with others – I didn’t have any time for anything. I was overwhelmed with paperwork and running our home office while juggling the kids without any regular help.
I felt guilty all the time because I had to sneak work in and and let the kids watch more TV than they should. The laundry was taking over the house and who can keep up with cleaning 5 bathrooms! We weren’t seeing friends or family much because I felt like I was a slave to the business, the house, and the never ending to do list – there just wasn’t any time and I was too tired.
So it might seem crazy that I chose to add one more thing to my plate, but the amazing thing is, by taking the step to prioritize and share the importance of self-care, positive inspiration & motivation, I am finding MORE time.
It’s a slow journey but carving out a little time for MY passions and priorities is helping me become more efficient at the mundane but necessary household and office responsibilities … and ever so slowly, I feel that I’m catching up and starting to make more quality time with those I love. I have more energy and more of a positive outlook. One more example of how Self-care Promotes Ability!!
