Finally we made it! Day 31 of our time management journey together.
However our journey is not over. Now we need to take what we learned and start applying it to our lives.
It seems human nature to approach new skills with an all or nothing mentality. We give our 100% expecting rapid completion.
We expect to become an awesome homemaker the day we get married. A perfect homeschooler on the day we first crack the books. An amazing blogger the first time we press publish.
Stop approaching life like a sprint. Stop thinking that you can put in a pile of effort and rapidly reach your intended finish line.
Life is more like a marathon, it takes a long process of training, and conditioning to be able to perform the work.
You need to build endurance. You need to become in tuned with your body, knowing when it needs fuel, rest, and when it needs to be pushed if you are going to build up the endurance you need to finish strong.
You will stumble. You will not fail however if you continue to get back up and learn from your stumble, no matter how many stumbles it takes. Reflect on the stumble but then continue to transform your days inch by inch. (Snail Pace it)
