Once you say you’re going to settle for second, that’s what happens to you in life.” –
— John F. Kennedy
I keep thinking of my daughters and how they work and and struggle to become the persons (adults) they are growing to be. Both my daughters have atributes and strengths I did not at their age, and thy both face different challenges than I did.
This morning Caitie was complaining about the training her soccer team is doing right now, this is her premier travel team and they are currently training by running 5-7 miles across a causeay bridge. The incline and distance of the bridge is challenging, no doubt. It takes time, the weather has been cool this week, and when it’s over, it hurts a bit. This team is something that Cait has choosen to persue, and we support financially and emotionally, though neither is always easy…lol. We try to be sympathetic to her, but honestly she was whiney this morning, and we didn’t give in much when she said, well maybe I’ll have too much homework.
Finding balance in your life is a growth process, right now she is learning school/sports/social balanace,and doing it well most of the time, certainly there are moments of exhaustion and frustration, but haven’t we all experienced that?
I’m busy most days tring to balance my tasks of motherhood, home, faith, frienship, wife…………and the list goes on. I don’t feel good about the balance every minute every day, but I keep trying. How do you try to balance or juggle all the balls you must keep in the air? How to you decide that the hard work of striving to be the best in something is worth it?
