Sometimes, you need to realize where your priorities lie. What the most important things in your life are and where you should be spending your time.
Sometimes, we might not always be happy with those priorities. I, for one, would much rather relax with Netflix or a good book at night, rather than do the laundry or dishes. But it doesn’t really matter what I want. As a mother, you realize that, regardless of your personal wants, taking care of your family is always one of your highest priorities.
“Your religion, your family, and the Green Bay Packers will be your priorities as long as you are here! And in that order!” – Vince Lombardi
Now you may or may not agree on that last part, but you have to give the man some credit for getting the first two right.
For me, school comes right after family. It’s always been this way. My family comes first, but school is close behind. Despite my personal want to write daily and have a beautiful blog, it can only happen when I first take care of God, my family, and my schoolwork.
I just finished up an intense two weeks of midterm papers, tests, and assignments. While that big push is over, I know that November won’t slow down much. December is out of the question. But I’m OK with that. I like my busy life.
I’m looking forward to keeping up with posting. I would say “catching up”, but I really don’t feel like having a mentality where I need to compensate for the two weeks I didn’t write. I’ve got enough going on, so I think I’ll just start fresh.
I’ve got some great ideas brewing, and I can’t wait to share them. Just keep me in your thoughts and prayers, that I keep my priorities in order, and accomplish what needs to be accomplished.
What are your priorities? Do you ever have trouble keeping them straight? Packers or Vikings or Other?
