I've been tagged!! This is the first time, so it's kind of exciting. I was tagged by Drea to answer the following questions about balance in my life. So, here goes.
1. How do you acheive balance in your life?
Well, fist of all, I don't feel like my life is very well balanced right now. That being said, I'm looking for balance in the following ways: First in my relationship with Jesus Christ. Things are definately suffering there, and need some serious balance. Prayer and reading my Bible need to move up on the list of things to do. Second, my wonderful husband needs a little more of my attention. Thirdly, my cutie pie son needs more of his mommy too. I think that health wise, I'm pretty balanced right now, trying to keep me and the little one in good shape!
2. What is your biggest challenge in balancing your life?
Ultimately, it is fighting my selfishness. I struggle with giving myself to others the way I should. This makes my life lean more toward me, and away from helping those I love. Definately not balaced! Part of this due to tiredness, but really, let's be honest, it's just hard to give of myself sometimes!
3. What are your priorities?
Right now, my priorities are figuring out how to balance my life! I have a lot of work ahead of me...
4. Have your prorities changed over time, and why?
Well, before I was married, I was focused more on wanting to serve I think, as backward as that sounds! Now I struggle a lot with shifting back into that thinking. Sometimes I just want time for myself again. Don't get me wrong here, I love doing things for my family! They are awesome and I love them so much! I just struggle with still being a selfish person sometimes.
5. What advice can you share to help all of us balance our lives?
Well, if you are a Christian, then make sure that growing closer to Christ is your number one priority, and family second. As you already know, I'm still working on that one! Try to make healthy decisions and love those around you.
