As a family,we cherish the weekends. It is the only time in the week we get to truly focus on us as a family. Monday-Friday, our lives are consumed with work, appointments, laundry,cleaning, grocery shopping, errands. I could go on, but I don’t want to brag about this luxurious lifestyle I live…
But If it were up to me, our weekends would have been just like every other day filled with tasks and things to cross off the to-do list. Lucky for me (and our girls) I married a man who taught me to just stop and breathe.
I think it took me getting to a point of a near meltdown to realize , my way was not working.
I liked to think I knew how to live my life, but he taught me to actually live life.
I stressed over all the things that needed to be done. He taught me to relax. I would feel the need to plan every detail(Spontaneity was not my forte) He taught me that sometimes it’s ok to just go with flow.
For me, I had to learn to give up control over every situation. And even though at the time it was a hard thing to do, it was better for all of us in the long run.
Don’t wait until you are at your breaking point to make a change in your life.
What change could you make in your life today to make yourself happier?
