I have a hard time balancing a number of priorities all at once. I don't know if I've always been like this, or if committing to things is just new for me. I don't know if I've always been an all-or-nothing type of person. But in this season of my life, I definitely am.
I definitely think we need the encouragement to take care of ourselves. For too long, we've defined success as a destination we reach, milestones we hit along the way. But in that headlong rush to reach milestones, we lose parts of who we are as we're going. So I'm in favor of an approach that includes time to slow down and reflect, to truly engage with the people around us, to evaluate where we're going and who we're becoming at the same time.
