A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.
My problem is that I just can’t seem to keep all the balls bouncing all of the time. I try, and sometimes I succeed, for a while anyway. More often than not, it seems the harder I try, the more I drop something. I NEED that extra pair of hands!
I have come to the sometimes painful conclusion that in order to try to keep some sense of normalcy, I have to PLAN to let something drop. It becomes a matter of priorities. What do I need or want most?
Then I have to let something go. Something good. That’s the problem. They are all good things, in my mind. I just can’t have them all, all the time. I must choose. I must prioritize. Painful, but necessary.
Would you like to let me in on your secrets regarding this process? I don’t seem to have a lot of rhyme or reason often as to why I place one thing over another. It’s sometimes based solely on how I feel that day. There isn’t really a PLAN that looks to the future. It is really just what is expedient and what serves the moment.
When and how did I get this way? Perhaps this is one of the “joys”, or perhaps “luxuries” of retirement. The freedom to decide these things with few apparent consequences to self or others, though that is not always the case. Sometimes our choice, our behavior, has a ripple effect on the lives of others.
I have not been working on my blog much lately because of choices I made to do other kinds of activities. My stats will suffer, of course, though it amazes me that a few people from all over the world seem to be reading something every day. Wow. I appreciate that!
This particular blog is an earlier draft I didn’t finish. I’ll take this opportunity to apologize to any faithful readers out there for my lack of input lately. I’ve had a lot of new things going on in my life. The blog was essentially put on hold, though there are a couple of drafts on the side awaiting some more work, as well as some potential ideas for posts.
I have a plan to return!
Thank you for blessing me with your presence, even when I am not here……you are all AWESOME ❤
