Sometimes it's important to work for that pot of gold. But other times it's essential to take time off and to make sure that your most important decision in the day simply consists of choosing which color to slide down on the rainbow. ~Douglas Pagels, These Are the Gifts I'd Like to Give to You
I saw this quote this evening and it really made me think. I have been told that I need to get my blood pressure under control, it is very high (check out my Beach House for more info). We all know that moms have to do a lot. I am sure that I am not the only mom that has out herself last while everyone else is getting their checkups & dental cleanings. I am now paying for these mistakes. I have always put the kids and dh before myself. I have come to a realization that I can no longer do that.
So far I have turned over several chores to the kids, turned off the TV and turned on music, watched what I ate today, and I took the time to put together a puzzle with Squirrel. :)
I just need to learn to relax during the day. I have been letting the little things get under my skin. I need to toughen up.
So how do you choose your color?
