Round and round we go
I feel like these stairs ALWAYS have something on it. I take things up as I pass, but somehow things end up right back on the stairs. It's a never ending cycle of putting things away. I am just as guilty of putting "stuff" here too. It gets cluttered and sometimes dangerous! As I was looking at the stairs taking this picture it reminded me how my life sometimes looks like this. I put so much "stuff"in my pathway of life that doesn't belong there! And sometimes, it can be dangerous physically and spiritually. Lately my "stuff" has been : Trying to get my entire TO DO list done in one day. I know, sounds easy right? My list may only have 4 things to do. But with my two kiddos, sometimes that list doesn't get done. And at night when I am laying in bed I beat myself up because I didn't finish my list. I feel like a failure because the only thing I finished was folding laundry! If I keep this cycle going eventually I am going to burst because I am so frustrated. So I need to remind myself that if my list doesn't get done, no biggie. And to reflect on what I did with my girls today instead. What memories were made? Lessons learned?
