Rejoice in what you can’t do

I don’t think I’ll be able to get everything done on my to-do list today. I just don’t have enough time in the day. I went to a family history conference in the morning, temple in the afternoon, and my husband and I are planning to go hiking and hunting in the evening. I’ve cleaned the house, read my scriptures, done the laundry. It hasn’t been a bad day so far.

I just have too much I want to do. But I have to prioritize, and realize that time with my husband is more important today. In fact, I can be okay because I don’t get everything done, because that means I am putting my priorities right. I’m putting my family over my own, nonessential projects. I’m living each moment, and doing what I love.

The things that don’t get done don’t have to mean I’m lazy–they just mean time is limited. They just mean that I was engage in a more important work today.

And I can be happy with that.
