Here’s the deal. You can create some truly wonderful memories that are sacred and beautiful, right now. You can take your business to the next level, right now. You can take a little bit of time for yourself and your family won’t implode. You CAN, and you absolutely should, plan something small, but something significant, that will actually cause you to live the life that you WANT to be living, this month.
I’ll be honest: I took one look at April and my first thought was, “There’s no way I can schedule anything special or fun. It’s too full. We’re going out of town for Easter, I’m shooting my first wedding, I’m leading worship in church twice, I’m signed up to run a 10k. Our month is done.” I realize those are all wonderful things! But I didn’t feel like I could plan anything for me, or for Milly, or for our marriage this month.
And then I remembered some of the principles I learned recently in What the Most Successful People do before Breakfast and I remembered – we tend to over exaggerate my busyness. I over exaggerate the fullness of my schedule. I lie to myself and say, “I don’t have time,” when indeed, I do. It just takes some forethought and intentionality!
You just have to take a closer look at your schedule, then block off time for what’s most important. It really is that simple.
So here’s to taking Milly to the zoo this month when I didn’t think I had time. I’m gonna MAKE time, because goodness we only have 4 more months until Baby #2 comes and I want to make the most of it. I’m going to take a yoga class because that hour to myself makes me stronger and rejuvenated to be a better wife, mama, and business owner. And I’m planning a date night with my man because a healthy marriage is vital to making this life of ours as beautiful as we want it to be.
