The Perfect Balance

Tuesday, April 05, 2011

I really haven't thought before this about a balanced life, so here is my thoughts on this.

I have always enjoyed my Adult life To me the perfect balance Is being married to my best friend
for 31 years, Through the good and bad. Then after being married for 17 years and not trying to have children, God sent us our Son he was meant to be or he wouldn't be here. Life was totally different but I wouldn't change it for anything after he was born I gained weight but wasn't concerned about me I had a family to take care of or so I thought,well when you forget about you as a person to being a wife and mother there was little time for me. My health started having issues so after all this time and at 50 years old, obese, Hello the Dr. said hey it's time you get on the ball and take care of #1 or you won't be here for everybody else. so here is my perfect balance list:

1. God is #1 in my life

2. After God I come 1st

3. Lifestyle change, NOT DIET!!

4. If I am happy with me, then I'm Happier in life

5. The best Wife and Mother I can be with God's help

Ok there is my thoughts on the perfect balance!!!!

    Good for you for learning to put yourself first before everyone else. That is something that most women have a hard time with. Glad you have figured out a way to have balance in your life.

    I am married to my best friend, too, and we have one son. I am glad that you decided to put yourself after God, because when you are happier, the others in your life will be, too! All the best to you!

    It seems that a lot of us at some point have put others before us. It is a maternal thing to do to take care of others and it is great when we learn we must take care of ourselves first before we truly can take care of other and that all comes with the help of our Lord, who ultimately is number one.

    I love your comments on God's timing and how He knows best. When my own balance is getting thrown off-kilter by something unexpected, that's always a tough one to remember. But once I do, it seems like balance returns. Great blog!

    I've been married for the same amount of time, also to my best friend. What a blessing, albeit the timing might be off, that God sent you a son. Obviously He knew the timing was right.

    What a great blog! I honestly never thought about putting ME as #2 on my list. I am now though!

    Good for you for learning to put yourself first. By doing that, you are also being a good example to your family and ultimately an example for your son to find balance in his life when he is out on his own.

    It seems that a lot of people, especially mothers, don't remember to take care of themselves. So glad you are finally figuring tht out so you can be around to enjoy your family! emoticon

    very true. All to often we forget to care for ourselves- but we are important too.

    Good for you!

    I have always said that the second commandment (of the two Jesus says are most important) that says to love others as we love ourselves requires us to love ourselves before we can properly love anyone else. So the order HAS to be God, then me, then you. I can't love you if I don't love me, and I can't love me if I don't love God.

    You absolutely have to take care of #1 to be able to be of service to the rest. Good for you!
