I keep pursuing this infinite theory of balance.
If you spend an hour on your business, you have to spend an hour with your kids, if you spend an hour playing, you spend the next hour scrambling around to clean or figure out what is for supper.. and Heaven forbid! if you spend an hour
vegetating, vegging, what is this word where you sit and chill you spend the next hour regretting it. The life of a WAHM is never done.. the to do list is endless! (can I just add in homeschooling – seriously… let’s just end this blog post now while i get back to work?)
At the Young Living Silver Retreat this weekend, a Royal Crown Diamond (Cherie Ross) gave us instead the idea of Harmony. To me, harmony is where you work at what you are working at with all that you have in that time and that no matter what you’re doing, doing that thing. It’s not harmonious to be checking text messages at the dinner table, it’s harmonious to be talking with your family. It’s not harmonious to not have laundry done. It’s not completely in context but it truly is how I want to live… Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men, (NASB)
I have lots of parts of Harmony to work on, in this transition to full-time WAHM from SAHM but just knowing that it isn’t balance in the everyday minute but harmony in my life is actually a thought process that will help me a lot!
Great post Amanda!
Don’t I have to pay Clarinda postage for the Deep Relief?
