Hi everyone! It’s Steph here, first off, I want to say that I do not have any news on Janet’s daughter yet. I do know though, that they will appreciate all of your thoughts and prayers, so keep them coming!
I have learned a lot from Janet over the years I have known her and one of those things I have learned is that you have to go with what is in your heart. So, today’s un-digi comes from MY heart!
BALANCE. It is something I have had on my mind a lot lately. Sometimes, it can seem impossible to find balance in all of the roles I play in my life. At times, I can feel like I am barely keeping my head above water as I take care of all of the people and things in my life that need doing and taking care of. This weekend, I was so blessed to be able to hear some motivational speakers give speeches that were geared just to women. One of them said something that resonated with me. She said, “Sometimes, we have the misperception that balance is doing everything perfectly and we need to just let that perception go, because it won’t happen.” I realized right then, that I have been working so hard to obtain what I THOUGHT was balance…I wanted to do it ALL perfectly! She was right, I cannot do everything perfectly (unfortunately…haha 😉 ). So, today, I am making a list of the things I want to do really well. Then, I am going look at how I am spending my time and see how it matches up with this list and make some changes where it’s necessary. I want to make sure that I am spending time on the most important things and doing them well! The things I am spending time on that aren’t quite as important, will need to go (this does not mean that I will stop eating ice cream while watching American Idol each time it’s on, but I might need to multi-task in some other way…like preserving my family’s memories while watching AI…haha…because being a good memory keeper is very important to me).
I would like to invite you to join me in this challenge to find some BALANCE in your life, not perfection, but BALANCE! I think we all might find that with just a little adjusting, we are doing a much better job than we thought!
P.S. The Digi Files 3 will not being going up for sale today, so if you haven’t grabbed TDF2 yet, you have one last chance! 🙂
P.P.S. Janet here — just walked in the door — 4:30 pm Sunday my time, 5:30 am Sunday EDT. A quick update — we are home from the hospital (where we had no internet service). The doctors have ruled out dengue fever and thyphoid, for which we are very thankful. However, she still has a high fever (staying between 102 and 104) and no explanation for it and no other symptoms (other than headaches). We didn’t feel that the hospital was doing very much for her and so once we knew for sure that it wasn’t dengue fever (a fairly common and occurrence where we live) we decided to bring her home. We are hoping that in a few days it will just run its course. It the meantime, we will just do what we can to keep her rested and hope that the fever stays down. I really don’t like that 104 range!
Thank you to everyone for your notes, thoughts, and prayers. It means a lot to us!
