A Temporary Farewell
Things have been crazy busy for me lately. Work is really busy right now and I’ve spent a lot of time recently evaluating how I spend my time. I feel rushed every day to get done all of the things I want to do and all of the things I need to do. There are so many people I want and need to nurture relationships with. There is so much that I want and need to do regarding my health and fitness. There are so many things that I want and need to do when it comes to maintaining my home and garden. I enjoy my interactions with friends and family on social networking sites. I like my television shows. I enjoy the time I spend here–thinking and writing about getting healthy and nurturing the friendships I have with those of you I don’t get to see in my every day life.
All good things. All things that are important to me. But…..I’m at the point where I have to make a choice between good, better, and best. I’m reminded something Elder Dallan H. Oakes once said in a conference talk. He said, “We should begin by recognizing the reality that just because something is good is not a sufficient reason for doing it. The number of good things we can do far exceeds the time available to accomplish them. Some things are better than good, and these are the things that should command priority attention in our lives.”
I’m taking a step back from blogging and social networking and about 90% of my tv viewing to make time for the things that are a little higher up on the priority list. I hope you each know that I have appreciated your support SO MUCH! I hope to be back here posting again, but for at least six weeks I’ll be testing the waters to see how much more I can accomplish if I center my focus just on the handful of things at the top of my list.
