My life seems to exist on the thin line between busy and stressed. I’m pretty sure I’m always busy because I’m that kind of person. If I have some free time, I fill it. In all reality, I’m probably always pretty close to the same level of busy, but sometimes I let it get the best of me. Then I get stressed. I often set deadlines for myself that are unrealistic or just plain silly. I’ve learned to manage some of this by list-making. When I put everything that has to get done on a list, I often am unable to put things on that I want to get done because I can literally tell by looking at the list that it’s just not going to happen. Husband pointed out that I was spending too much time on the stressed side of the line. Since I’m officially going back to work in just a few short days, I’m focusing on spending more time on the busy side rather than stressed. More time in the Word helps me with this a lot, as well as my mandatory work Sabbath every weekend. I’ll keep working on it as the school year begins.
