This week, I plan on keeping my thoughts pretty simple.
As a mother, I try to live and learn from this balancing act I call life; and I learn many lessons.
I am working on saying no to things that I don’t have time for.
I fill my life with good things, sometimes I fill my life with too many good things.

When I read this quote, I had an ah-ha moment. I thought about it this way.
I am the only one who knows what I can and can’t do. I am the only one who can decide when to say no. When I say no, it is on behalf of me, my children and my husband. This year, my family comes first.
I can’t predict how people react to me saying no. I can’t worry about their reactions. I can’t feel guilty about it. I have to do what is best for me and my family.
I am working on living in the moment.
Here are a few captured moments at our house.
