I’ve been trying to be more engaged lately.

Engaged in real life.

Gosh this is hard.

I struggle with living in reality, I’m an extreme internalizer and I get overwhelmed really easily.

But I’ve been trying… I’ve been pushing myself and putting up boundaries that will help me do so.

I’m learning that I’m not someone who can have a million things going on in my life. I need less, I need quality not quantity. And I need time to rest… something I haven’t allowed myself to do for a long time now.

I’ve realized that if I’m going to give the best of myself to my children, and create memories like we did this day, I need to set priorities that work for my abilities and not feel so pressured by how other people are handling life.

Maybe I’m just growing older, but I’m learning that the important things are the things that are right in front of you, and not the things that could be. I’m not opposed to goals and objectives, but I have to focus on now… because if I don’t I miss everything that’s important… everything that matters.

Goodness.

Worth the effort, but so, so hard to practice. I’m working on it though.

Worth putting down my phone, and building forts on a cold rainy summer day instead.

Worth having my tea spilled on me by a pair of rambunctious twins.

Worth it, worth it, worth it…

worth it.

Do you struggle with this? How do you prioritize balance?

Until next time,

Karin
