Lessons of Late

Inbetween the craziness of having barely any time to call my own, I am posting a few old poems from my original blog, but I do also plan to do posts like this one, as well as sharing some favourite music and penning some more poetry.

I haven’t had a lot of time to reflect, but themes in life have a way of screaming for attention at times. I happened to stumble across a life coaching video by a lady called Lisa Corduff and it got me thinking about priorities. Often life sort of just happens to me and around me and I feel a constant state of overwhelm. Lisa’s video helped me initiate a family conversation about what truly mattered. I’m still pondering it and being helped by it.

One of the necessities which I threw away when life got tough, was music. I only have to see the way my daughter sings and dances at every opportunity, to see what I would (still) be like if I didn’t get so stressed and caught up in the to-do list.

So today I’m challenging you (and myself) to get back to the heart of things. Stop worrying about someone else’s stamp of approval. If it’s important to you then it should be given time. Waiting for an opportune moment could prove a waste of time. Some things can’t wait and so many people could be blessed along the way.

I am a wife and a mother of two beautiful and spirited young children, living in Australia. Unashamedly, I am a follower of Christ; He is my daily hope and inspiration. I enjoy dabbling in a range of hobbies ! These include (but aren't limited to) gardening, cooking, making cards, playing piano, singing, writing letters, journalling and walking in nature/ identifying animal species. I find it hard to make time for myself but I'm learning that life is too short and sometimes things must be scheduled in or the days slip away without much change. Family and friends are very important to me and I am happiest when I live my life in community.
