Life if busy! We, as women, jump from one activity to another. We run, run, run – always caring for those around us, solving their problems, and keeping the world running. But at the end of the day, it’s easy to realize we’ve done nothing for ourselves.
I’m often guilty of this very thing. I neglect the interests and activities that make me unique, and focus on always doing for others. While there is nothing wrong with doing for others – in fact, it is very right to take care of our families, work hard for our employers, and minister to those around us. But if we don’t spend time recharging our creative batteries, we will find that our lives are flat and unfulfilled.
But how can busy women like us make time for those fun extras?
This book not only gives you ideas on how to reclaim the fringe hours – those moments that are so easy to miss during the day, but it shares the importance or using this time.
I’m a busy mom. I homeschool my son, cook and clean, blog, and work as a consultant for a direct sales company. There really isn’t enough hours in the day, but since reading The Fringe Hours, I’ve given myself permission to find time to do the things that help to recharge me.
Is it easy?
No. But it is worth it.
Even taking a few minutes to take an artistic photo helps brighten my perspective. And as a Mom, a brightened perspective is really important!
