I prefer not to get caught up in the busyness of life, living your life by others' definition of success, a good Christian, and/or happy. Define your own version of happiness and success, making it authentic to you and disregard the reports of society. For me, rearing my kids to be kind, productive, self-sufficient, and responsible human beings is one of my top priorities. In doing that I must put aside the pressures to meet other people's deadlines, taking on stressors that are not life-threatening, and even my own occasional selfishness. It means taking care of myself so that I may be available to do a job that God placed in my hands. Whatever your most important goals and priorities are in life, develop unwavering guidelines that help you keep them first.
I love all things creative and writing thought-provoking posts. I began documenting #MyEarlyMorningThoughts about two years ago and have since received many requests to begin blogging and to continue posting about everyday life, growth, maturity, and SPIRITUAL concepts. Don't be shy, feel free to comment your life experiences and wisdom on any post.
