If like is a balancing act, then why do I feel so clumsy? Have you ever felt clumsy at life? Oh please, tell me you can relate.
Is the act of tripping and falling a reoccurring theme in your life, as it is in mine at times? It’s those days when you wake-up and before your feet can hit the floor you already seem off balance in attitude, speech, or thought. How are you suppose to juggle those moments? Or how about when there’s too much on our plate and we’re frustrated and exhausted?
There seems to be so much to balance that I’ve learned I have to have accountability built in to my life to maintain a steady juggle. But have you ever noticed that the accountabiity you build in to your life always seems to come back to you on the wrong day — the day you don’t want to hear about it.
Yes, while you try to ignore the art of juggling well that’s the day the friend says . . .
where are your goals,
is your attitude a little off today, or
I haven’t seen you write in awhile.
While having accountability is not always fun, I do treasure the gift of those precious loyal friends who can speak into my life for the better. Today, I count them as blessings.
