I have been a Stay at home Mom for other a year now. I love it! I feel so blessed every day to get to spend time with our little girl. I realize that I do need help as this article and many others state. Depression in high in this field of work.
In this blog post I found Mother Theresa’s simple schedule of Missionaries:
5:00-6:30 Prayers and Mass
6:30-8:00 Breakfast and cleanup
8:00-12:30 Work for the poor
2:30-3:00 Spiritual reading and meditation
3:00-3:15 Tea break
4:30-7:30 Work for the poor
9:00-9:45 Night prayers
How can I implement a similar schedule in my life? What does your schedule look like? Does it reflect your goals in life? Do you take time for prayer? Would a simple schedule make your life less crazy? What do we feel the need to make ourselves busy all day to feel fulfilled?
I hope to learn the lesson of keeping things simple and working towards a goal every day.
