So Little Time…So Many Hats

Living a fulfilled and balanced life while learning when to say "No."
By Lara Davis

Women these days wear a lot of hats - Mothers, Sisters, Wives, Employees, Friends, etc.

How do they find time to do it all? Learning to live a fulfilled and balanced life and learning when to say "No" is essential these days. The question is, what is most important in your life?

I heard somewhere that life was like a game of juggling five balls. The balls are called work, family, friends, health and integrity and the objective is to keep them all in the air. And one day you come to understand that work is a rubber ball. When dropped it can bounce back. The rest of the balls are glass. When dropped they can get scuffed, nicked, broken apart and may even shatter. Reminding yourself daily of your true priorities and focusing on what can't be "dropped" is what's precious. Treat them with tender care.

So, how do you balance your priorities when everything feels important? Start with small steps. One of my friends and I have a favorite saying and we remind each other of its importance all the time: "How do you eat an elephant?" One bite at a time. This is how every relationship and goal should be accomplished, one step at a time. Happiness and success never comes in one day, but in many small steps.

In your everyday life, how do you face tensions, and sometimes overwhelming stress? How do you manage everyday priorities? What are some ways you find time for yourself? How do you manage your stress? What is important to you? Take the time to enjoy your priorities in life and make them just that…a priority.
