Time

Time seems to be of the essence these days.  Do we have time to do it all? I think there is time to get the necessities done, but there is not time for very many want-to's.  I really frustrate my husband when I start complaining about all the things that I haven't gotten done.  One time he said, "The kids are feed and nobody died today, I think that is enough."  And this is true.  I managed to get through the day with getting the necessities done.  I was searching through LDS.org and found this great quote from Julie B. Beck(more on her here):

“A good woman knows that she does not have enough time, energy, or opportunity to take care of all of the people or do all of the worthy things her heart yearns to do. Life is not calm for most women, and each day seems to require the accomplishment of a million things, most of which are important. A good woman must constantly resist alluring and deceptive messages from many sources telling her that she is entitled to more time away from her responsibilities and that she deserves a life of greater ease and independence. But with personal revelation, she can prioritize correctly and navigate this life confidently. The ability to qualify for, receive, and act on personal revelation is the single most important skill that can be acquired in this life." —Julie B. Beck (Liahona, May 2010, 10-11)

  1. awesome. I often go to bed thinking I didn't get it all done and yet my kids were still neglected. What price am I paying by trying to get everything done everyday?

  2. Why am I on the opposite end of the spectrum? I find it incredibly easy to say "I'll try to do it tomorrow." Knowing I'll put it off at least another week. Come to my house girls you'll find all the time you need. Must be that I'm the youngest of 5 well rounded kids... or at least 4.
