It’s been a while since I’ve done a Pagan Blog Project post, so I guess it’s appropriate that today’s topic is juggling. Because really, as pagans, as people with families, jobs, lives, we all juggle. The question is do we juggle for them, or do we juggle for us?
That’s quite a question. Well, you juggle because you have to. I can hear the answer, because it’s something that I would have answered some time ago, too. I mean, I can’t really choose not to take mom to her doctor’s appointment, or choose not to go to work. I can’t choose that the Sabbat falls on the same night as some other event. So I do what I can and I juggle all the demands on my time because well…I have to.
But we can look deeper at this; we really do need to juggle for ourselves. How does this work?
First, let’s look at the activities that we really want to do. And if we have children, we need to look at their activities too. Do they want to be involved in a gazillion things? Simplify if you can.
Then, look at the things you have to do. How can you make those activities work for you?
You can juggle for you! The shift can, and will happen in your life, and when it does, it will be profound. Make time for the things you want to do. Juggle what you want to juggle. The rest can wait…
