Do you ever feel like the picture below? Too many things (projects, ideas, tasks, relationships) going on at once?
Me too! There are seasons in all of our lives when we need to work really hard and multitask through it all to accomplish something. But, there are also other seasons in which we need to PAUSE enough to evaluate our current PRIORITIES to make sure we are still on course with our PURPOSE in life.
Sometimes this means temporarily giving up things we enjoy to put more focus on the most important things. For most of us, this moment becomes pretty obvious once we take on one more thing that threatens the balance of all of it.
Recently, my wife and I decided to take a huge step of faith and co-write our first book! It will be about living a life of faith and healthy service in the Church while continuing to nourish a thriving marriage and home life. Personally, I am also working, finishing up my Sociology degree online, and starting a church leadership consulting ministry.
Unfortunately, this means I need to take a break from blogging for a while. This blog is more for me than anyone else. It’s been like a journal. But for those who read it, I do encourage you to stay connected with me on social media. I’m much more active in these places anyway. The book is scheduled to be complete by the first part of 2017.
Enough about me. What about you? Is your current balancing act going well, or are there ‘plates‘ as risk of crashing to the ground?
