Make time for those things you truly want to do. Worry not. The things that need your attention, will get it, but with more joy! The key is to schedule your time with balance in mind. I have found this to work really well for me! I find that I am getting so much more done because I am able to put forth more enthusiasm and energy to all my tasks because I scheduled in some “fun”.
I know during this time of year is a season of preparations, parties, shopping, decorating and loads of busyness. It does not have to take the wind out of your sails if you take the time to take a breather or two daily. And, yes, life happens when you make plans.
So, keep it flexible. You already know what you need to do. Just include an activity or two that will give you a spark. For me it is creating art to music. One song takes 5 minutes maximum. With a bit of set-up and clean-up, it is a total of ten minutes; and, wow, I am ready to do the next “need-to” task. What activities can you “squeeze-in” that will make you blissful? Balance is the solution!

I could not comment until I clicked on “post comment”. The wordpress program presented the background the same color as the type so I could not see what I wrote. Great blog, it reminds me of the adage “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”. Thank you for your positive daily message.
Sorry about the comment-making inconvenience. WordPress can have issues at times. I appreciate your daily comments and support. Yes, ALL work and no play make Jack a dull boy….wasn’t that Ben Franklin? Great adage! Love ♥ Angi
Angi, I love this reminder. The last year has been an adjustment for me as my husband retired and the times that I previously had for solitude (which I need) are harder to come by. But slowly, I’m finding those places and pulling them to me. Yes, regardless of all we do, we need a moment for us. We cannot take care of others if we don’t care for ourselves first. Thank you. ~ Love, Bobbie
