I can't say I reached a conclusion but I did manage to pass out from exhaustion and get a few hours sleep. Tonight I will try again. Hopefully my communication will be more effective and my rhythm will begin to return.
I am finding there is a strong need to balance faith and trust with common sense and caution. If I let myself get too focused on the risks, I am paralyzed to move forward. If I let myself rely solely on faith, I put the people I love at risk. Balance is essential!
I'm grateful to have a husband that can help me tip the scale either way to remind me where that balance falls. I'm grateful to have strong faith and strong common sense. I'm grateful for educating myself on the best ways to clean effectively and what steps need taken to reduce risk as much as possible. I'm grateful for the support I receive as I find my best balance. I'm grateful to have a big heart and want to help everyone. I'm grateful to be working on stronger boundaries so I can help those who need it while still keeping my own balance. I'm grateful for flexibility at work as I navigate the hiccups and try again.
How do you regroup after things go awry? Do you have someone you talk to that helps you see the other side of the picture?
May today remind us that finding a new normal will take time. May we find balance in faith and in common sense. Have a beautiful day!
