Coffee, birds and books this morning... I'm taking #breakingbusy to heart.
The book is called Breaking Busy by Alli Worthington - If you're an overwhelmed mom with a jam-packed calendar, you might want to give it a read. $8.99 on Kindle...you don't even have to go to the bookstore to get it!
Some, ok LOTS of people say YES to things they shouldn't out of guilt or obligation. I hear it from people I talk to every single day. If that's you, then you definitely should read this book.
Me? I don't fall into that category. I'm ok with saying no to things that don't match up with my schedule, talents and interests. Just ask the room moms from the kids' classes over the past several years.
However...I do have a way-too-full calendar of things I say YES to because they sound like good things, fun things, and important things. I'm not finished with the book yet, but it is already helping me identify a better way to filter the opportunities that come my way to determine what's really *most* important and where I'm called to be at any given time (because that calling can change, you know!).
Our lives have gotten all cluttered up with things that we think we “should” do; so much so that we can’t figure out what the things are that we were meant to do.
Here's to Breaking Busy and being more intentional with our time and energy...
