Busy Month of May - Good, Better or Best

While sitting, looking at the schedule for the week, I braced myself for the realization that there is just not enough of my time to go around.  With so many seemingly significant things shouting for my attention, I feel stretched.  And at times a bit inadequate in the face of the challenge.  

As I sorted through my schedule making judgement calls about where to spread my time, it hit me.  What am I doing?  Why am I being hard on myself for not being able to do the impossible?  I simply cannot do it all.  I was never supposed to be able to quiet all of the very real voices screaming from the pages of my planner. 

In the end we must all make choices with our time. 
What will we choose?  Good, Better, or Best?  I think we all need a reminder from time to time that we simply cannot do it all. 

So, what will it be?  

Good, Better or Best?


  1. Oh my goodness I hear ya! This month is always a hard one with school trips and programs plus extracurricular activities it is very difficult to find balance. Throw in some family events and a few church callings and its feels impossible! You can do it!

  2. Thanks for the reminder. My weeks is the same way.

    p.s. I like your new design on your blog.

  3. Good post! I think everyone feels that way sometime or is hard to know what is best when there are so many good things to do!


  4. Thanks for the reminder...I needed it. I can loose tract of what matteers most sometimes.
    I also wanted to thank you for the poem you sent us. It's beautiful!
