slowing down.

the past month has felt really really busy. when life gets busy, i get anxious. when i get anxious my serenity is a little…off. i have been reminded lately just how beautiful my life is. i know that all the 'fullness' of life can make me feel a bit unmanageable at times but i'm grateful for the fullness. a full life is what people strive for- it's how i know i'm on the right track.

sometimes life just has to be busy. we have work, daycare, preschool, workout regimens, commitments, friends, and family that all need a piece of our time. but that's not just it. other things take up time, too. like dishes. i hate dishes. cleaning up after myself and my family feels like a full time job sometimes.

when life starts feeling unmanageable, i have to remind myself of a couple of things. first off- if all i do all day long is love my children and husband, treat them with dignity and respect, i'm doing the right thing. if i get to work on time, do my job to the very best of my ability, i'm doing the right thing. if i love God, and trust that it's Him who has control of all those little pieces that i want to control so badly (but know in my heart that i can't), i'm doing the right thing.

"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things i can, and the wisdom to know the difference." amen.
