Lately has been an entirely different story. There has been such a unsettling feeling in my heart and life that I am ready to shake. Ever feel like you can't get a grip on the simple things. For me it's the constant pull of finding my perfect balance. I realize it probably won't ever be perfect, but I would like to get back in my "groove" if you know what I mean.
This past year I have gotten busier and have felt pulled in many different directions. I have added on more tasks and projects and have had a hard time adjusting.
It has affected my self-care at times. It has challenged me in my wifely duties such as actual quality time with my man and keeping a house up to par. I have come to the conclusion both mentally, spiritually, and emotionally that some things just have to give. So here are my life roles and what I plan on doing differently in each:
Wife: Giving more time to James. Cleaning up the kitchen after he cooks us dinner. Going on more dates. Reading the Bible together daily. Keeping my house and car clean.
Christian: Getting more active in our small group at church. Attending church faithfully. Praying and reading my Bible. Seeking to have the mindset of Christ in all of these areas of my life.
Dietitian: Choosing to have the right attitude going into work everyday and being grateful for the job I have been given and the lives I can touch daily. Challenging myself with new opportunities. Networking with other Dietitians who will bring out better work in me.
Blogger: Posting less frequently on Considering You for the time being and releasing some of the pressure that I have put on myself in building an online presence.
Friend: Invest more time into building relationships with the girls in my life. Grabbing more coffees and going on adventures.
Health Enthusiast: Daily making sure that I schedule time to move my body and adequately sleep. As much as I know about this stuff and encourage others in their areas it is easy for me to make sacrifices here when time is short.
So back to finding that Mary above.
