How is everyone enjoying their New Year? We are about half way through the first month of the year and I’m feeling a little lost. I have made an active decision to do less blogging and all the work that goes into blogging and let me tell you, it’s an adjustment. I actually have to stop myself sometimes from falling back into old routines of “busying” myself. I realized a while back that much of what I did was simply busy work, which I felt was absolutely necessary and vital to the blog. But I’m seeing that it’s not really the case…I was working too much for too little. I have to say I’ve been doing great with the goal of slowing down and being in balance.
Occasionally I feel lost though, and I’ve felt a little depressed….but I don’t really know why unless it’s just the change of doing a lot less that makes me feel this way. I think its only human nature to “want” to be busy….to fill our time with something we think is rewarding. And so that’s the part I have to make sure is always in check…is it rewarding, does it make me happy, is it worth it, is it beneficial?
So “lost” I still kinda feel…
But I’m much calmer and learning to adjust to more time in my life. I’m not good with “free time”, but I am learning to enjoy it. The only part of enjoying it is that I feel guilty. I know my husband is at work….and here I am enjoying free time? It doesn’t seem very fair right now. That’s where the guilt comes in.
But its given me a lot of time to let me figure out what I want to do career-wise once my youngest is in school. And although I still have a few years to ponder ideas, I may be making steps to try to make sure it will really happen. Might involve taking some classes and getting an associate degree on top of my bachelors…but we’ll see what happens because other things have to happen before that happens.
So we will see what God has in store for our family this year.
