If you follow me on facebook then you know that I've had to step back and re-examine my life and my priorities. Nothing bad or life-changing has happened, but I did notice that my life was beginning to lose the "balance" that allows me to be the best wife, mom, church leader, friend, blogger, etc. that I can be.
I was also starting to lose some of my passion for life, which impacts my success in any given area. So I thought about it. I thought about what I really want from my life right now. What do I want to do that I'm really passionate about?
The answer: write a book.
Writing a book is something that has been on my heart for a looooong time. But more recently, it has become something that I actually believe could be a reality for me. It's not a pipe dream. It's a tangible and attainable pursuit.
So if I want to write a book (and write it within the next couple years), that means that other things in my life need to be shuffled around in order to achieve that goal.
One of the decisions I have made is to reduce my blog posts to a once a week commitment. You may still see a week with two posts if my brain has been on overdrive or my kitchen experiments have turned into successes, but reducing that commitment makes me a much more relaxed mama and frees up time for me to write my book.
You'll totally think it's worth it when you purchase my book in the future, I know it :)
Anyway, re-examining my life had me thinking about what really makes me healthy in mind, body and spirit and I came up with this list.
I hope you use it to renew your energy, your passion, and your priorities like I have!
