Mom: Caught Up in the Busyness of Life & "One More Thing?" Here's My Challenge to You...

We all have one. It's a list of things we value … things we want to make time for. This list most likely includes things related to our relationships. Our health and wellness. Our growth. Our future. Our present. So while this list is great, it often sits. And remains as a list. Because while that list remains, another list is growing. This is a list of "one more thing."

  • "Just let me do one more thing, and I'll make time to call that friend."
  • "Just let me do one more thing, and I'll finally have time to exercise."

And on it goes. Here’s my challenge: What are things you put off doing because the busyness of life continues to get in the way? Decide today to choose one of the things on your list and commit to it. Clear a window of time and enjoy the gift of doing what matters most.

I am constantly saying this to my kids,"hold on, I just have one more thing to finish." I need to change that. Thank you for the reminder Kelli Schulte!
