Life will teach you some pretty interesting lessons if you let it. Take being a business owner and having two babies back to back... I thought it would be cute to have boys twelve months apart, and IT IS! It's also a lot of work and requires dedication, organization and at least an ounce of hope. Here are some lessons having a family has taught me along the way...
1) Balance is key. In life, there are many daily responsibilities. Learning how to balance it all requires us to really look at what's important. Where do you want to put your time and energy? Some things may have to go, not because you don't care, but because they don't allow you to serve your purpose as easily. There will also be tasks that require you to sink your teeth into... Bring your life into focus and make time for balance.
2) We need rest. The power of rest is sorely under-rated. When we are tired, we are not able to give our full potential. Our country is filled with busy bodies... Know there is time to rest and rejuvenate. When we allow ourselves time to recharge after a long task, day or week, we are better prepared for progress. Even stretching offers a wonderful release that money can't buy! Take time to relax and find "peace of mind" regularly.
3) Keep the dream alive. Sometimes, our dreams seem so big and far away, but if we keep believin' before too long we're living what we used to dream of. Of course, it's good to have a healthy dose of reality, so be aware that you have to manifest your dream with passion and drive. Always remember, magical moments can happen in the right timing!
4) You better work it! If we want results, we gotta' work. Executing a savvy schedule can bring rich rewards. Planning saves time and energy helping you achieve your goals. Checking off those accomplished tasks is rewarding! If you are having a hard time remembering why you're doing what you're doing, refer back to #1.
Having the ability to balance "the important" to achieve our dreams is the greatest of all skills. When we plan for tomorrow, we can focus on today.
