I'm going to venture out and guess that maybe I'm not the only one out there who struggles to balance my days.
This morning I overslept. My brother woke me up with a phone call. He was sitting on my porch. We'd decided to meet for a Bible Study on Friday mornings. I rolled out of bed and opened the door for him. We had a great study. After he left I looked at my kitchen counter. This is what I saw.
(This project.) One thing I have learned about myself is that I need to strike while the iron is hot or it may not get done, at least not for a really long time.
Yesterday I did very little housework. I didn't even make my bed. I did minimal picking up. I made breakfast, lunch, and dinner. But I was terribly lazy about cleaning up after myself... You saw the counter.
I need to strive for better balance. I rarely know where to start, but today I started by cleaning my counter (and making my bed).
Any other creative types out there have any wisdom on how to achieve balance when the need to be creative strikes?
