Keeping Your Mind Right! (life as a woman)
I have been super busy lately because the break is over and school is back in session. This is the time that I truly have to apply Mrs. C’s balancing act to my life because I want to make sure that I have enough time for school, my kids, my husband, and myself. The everyday life can sometimes just carry you away and overwhelm you. It is so important to seek God because you need something to hold on to in order to keep your mind. As women, we carry so much on our plate and many times we try to do so much without realizing what we are doing to ourselves. We have to watch it because at times it becomes so overwhelming that we find ourselves snapping at everyone around us. Our stress levels are high and so learning stress management techniques becomes very important, as well as taking time for yourself. When we are stressed a lot of times we end up stressing everyone around us. I myself really want to make sure that I apply stress management to my life because I don’t want my stress levels becoming a problem for my marriage. My husband, thank God, knows what kind of stress that I am about to undertake, with Grad school and is very supportive. However, it is not fair to him if I allow my stress to interrupt our happy home. Bottom line is to do whatever you have to in order to relieve your stress, for your family but most of all for your mental and physical health. My main advice as always let God help you to find the right technique for you and keep your mind open to the Holy Spirit when he is talking to you.
