When I hear the word down sizing I am used to thinking of negative things. Whether it's layoffs or selling a home, I tend to see it as a bad thing.
Today I felt completely overwhelmed. I'm not sure why. The radio show went well, the boys school work went rather quickly, I have assessed why I think Tanner is having problems and have a process to help correct it, got the kids to practice, my husband is home.........Basically a good day. But I couldn't shake this feeling. I do have a lot on my plate but don't we all these days?
One of the jobs I currently have is Child Care Coordinator for my husbands unit. When there is an event that we provide care for, I organize the sitters and the RSVP's for care. In the next two weeks we have 4 different events that I have to be at the unit for.
Tonight as I had a girlfriends children at their soccer practice, I realized that my husband just came home and I have NO down time with him. I am still running like a mad woman.
I have made the executive decision to down size my work load. What a great idea! If I have something on my plate that will not matter that I did it or someone else did it AND I don't enjoy it, I am getting rid of it! I will no longer be the child care coordinator. I used to enjoy doing it. Now I grit my teeth every time I think about it. God had a reason and a season for me to do that job. I think that season has passed.
It's hard to say you can't or won't do a job that you signed up for. But if it makes you miserable why do it?
So tonight I am down sizing things. Anything I can get my hands on. What are you willing to let go of?
