It’s been a rough year for me. Well, a rough couple of years actually. And this last weekend I hit the wall. Running. Brick wall. Yeah…
Although my life is extremely simple compared to many, I am needing to simplify more and more and focus on the things that are the absolute barest essentials to my life.
When I examined what I could change I came up with this list: Job, extra-curricular, social and spiritual involvment.
What that means is this… I gave my notice at the barn on Sunday, I’m looking at place tomorrow where I might be selling my little mare and I won’t be interacting much outside of essential communication with a few select people. Oh and the only “church” interaction is going to be whenever we go as a family.
I know this sounds extreme but I’ve spent a lot of years being really busy and focused on a lot of other things and I’m seeing some behavioral, spiritual and developmental issues with my kidlets that is concerning to me. Not ginormous, but I don’t want these issues to become more than a bump in the road… Ya know? I’m not spending as much time schooling as I need to be and I am also not as available for our home business as I need to be…
The good news is that the one outlet I’m not going to be changing is here. In fact, I would like to be writing a lot more than I have been. Unfortunately I probably won’t have as much material as I used to since I’m turning into a hermit.
I’m so excited!!!! I don’t usually like people all that much. I have a few I like and a few I need and don’t really have a lot of interest in the rest. I like solitude and routine. I’ve had neither for a long, long time
Hey! Maybe now I will actually get to read the Bible on a regular basis and not just as triage when life gets hairier than I can handle. Wouldn’t that be great!!!!
