Does this sound like you?
Homeschooling is time-consuming, but it is possible to balance your responsibilities and still have time for yourself!
Looking at my to-do list for the day, I wondered how I would get it all done without falling into bed exhausted again. I had to be missing something.
As I went through the day, my mind kept wandering back to a conversation I had with a friend the week before. We discussed finding balance and managing everything we needed to do as wives, mothers, home educators, and small business owners. We knew we couldn’t do it all, but how could we choose where to invest our time and energy?
I told her it was like juggling. We were trying to keep all the balls in the air, but we kept dropping them. She said we needed to keep some of the balls in the air and not let them drop because they were precious, and we would be deeply saddened if they shattered. Other balls we could drop without much consequence.
As we discussed this, we decided that as we considered where to invest our time and energy, we needed to identify what was most important to us and keep those balls in the air. And we had to be okay letting the other balls drop.
This isn’t easy to do, but with practice, it is possible!
I began reading and researching time management strategies, finding balance, and living from a place of rest. As I incorporated what I learned into my daily and weekly routines, I prioritized what mattered most and said no to a lot more.
