Some days you just gotta allow yourself a little forgiveness, right?
I’ve been having those days lately, where I look at my to-do list, don’t get too much crossed off of it, and then proceed to add more to the list. Family, farmies, home, work…
Is it the holidays? I’m not quite sure it is, since I am still way behind on my Christmas gift shopping and making. Is it my over-achieving-self? Maybe, but I don’t think I’ve added too much new to the established routine.
I’ve been working on trying to get some organization in my life – I used to be uber-organized (pre-farm days, of course), but had (thankfully) let that go a bit. However, I am finding that in order to get the necessities accomplished, one needs to have SOME sort of organization.
So the lists begin.
I just have to remind myself:
Every day is a new start. What doesn’t get done, will have another chance tomorrow. If it still doesn’t get done?
Maybe it wasn’t so important in the first place.
So tomorrow, I will look out into the gorgeous pasture I call ours, and give myself another chance. Another chance to be an awesome wife and mother, a decent homesteader, and a great person. Because I can.
Do you have a hard time cutting yourself some slack? What is your “secret” for balancing it all?
