You have to choose to reclaim your peace!
I was tired of rushing from one meeting to another I realised I needed to do something drastic to reclaim my peace. I started to become a nightmare to everyone. An innocent question was answered through frustration and a snappy remark. My husband sat me down and said: “You can not be everything to everyone”. Those words were like oil on a fire. To be honest, I did not respond well.
At that moment I felt that he was the first to want me to be everything to everyone and he could not understand what I, his wife, and a homeschooling, working mother had to endure. Again I chose this life, and I enjoy every minute of it. But we all get out of wack sometimes. Life is fast, and the demands are always there.
Have you ever heard the words If you want something done get a busy person to do it? This is true but the reality is somewhere the busy person will become overwhelmed, and they do not even realise it. Saying yes becomes the norm, and you never take a moment to think anymore.
