Regularly I read my devotional in the morning and it hits a cord with me and I use that as my jumping off point for a post. Well, today was no different.
Today’s writing reflected back on putting all the author’s eggs in one basket. There was a season in her life where she felt like she was putting all her eggs in the “job basket” and it broke.
Up until a month ago, this is exactly what I felt like I was doing at work. Until I read today’s devotion though, I wouldn’t have been able to put those words to it. For 4 years I was putting all my eggs in one, very limited basket. I lost myself, I gained weight and was out of shape, I was giving up so much time with my children and so much more.
Over the last month since I became a “stay at home mom”, I have found happiness again. I have lost weight, literally years have fallen off of my face. Multiple people told me yesterday that they could see how happy I was and how much younger and refreshed I looked. I do yoga nearly every day, go for walks and spend time with my kids doing the things that they are interested in doing.
My eggs are all in one basket now, but it my basket!! My basket is really big, strong and sturdy now. Marriage, Family, Home, Health, Career, Happiness those are the eggs that are in my basket! A nicely balanced basket.
