On Tape Measures & Balance

Wow, it's been a hectic week (I'll share why next week). In my exhaustion tonight, I decided to sit down and try to catch up on some internet stuff. Trouble is, I'm full of brain fog...so, I don't know why I am even attempting reply to emails, etc. Do you know...I actually just realized that the mail has not been checked since Saturday? How does that happen?

I did find a couple wonderful articles online. I'm linking them, for you, and for me. I think I might need to re-read these now and then. 

Let's all please get rid of that tape measure(great article)

This article on Balance was a good read

This article, was another good read.

That same blogger above had an awesome quote posted somewhere(forget where?)

"Our greatest fear should not be of failure but of succeeding at things in life that don't really matter." ~ DL. Moody

Wow. So true.

My week was not balanced, and I may have pulled out my tape measure a couple of times{which may have caused me a tiny bit of anxiety}. And I'm suddenly deeply thinking about that Moody quote, and what it means in my life right now. Good stuff to think on.

I'm impressed you can go that long between checking email! I check it 50 times a day. Now... I can't respond to save my life.

Yes. We have no business comparing ourselves to others. Why is it so common?

Great quote!

Here's a tidbit of useless information: Dwight is the IV...yes, poor him. His great grandfather was named after DL Moody. Therefore, I have a DLK, IV instead of DLM. ;-)

I heart a good quote. :) Hope you're doing OK and not working yourself to death. Maybe you should call in to school sick. :) Public school teachers do it, why can't you? xo, Jess

Stacy-I had not checked my outside mail box, I check my email daily :) By the time Greg came back from his trip he needed a bag for all the mail.

Jess....oh girl, I think a "sick" day sounds like a great idea right now.
