Q: Running a Small Business is very time consuming! It leaves very little time to have a Social Life... Any thoughts?
RT: Tell me about it, lol! =/ Yes... ;) I definitely have more thoughts than I have Time or Energy to communicate, lol. Personally, I luv to Hang Out & I luv to Work on my Business! =) So I make a concentrated effort almost Daily to do both. Each Person has to find their own balance though. Too much Work is no good & too much Play is no good. It takes lots of Trial & Error. Meaning, you try things, they may not work as seamlessly as you would like, so you try something else until you find a good feeling for Your Daily Lifestyle. So never put too much pressure on yourself to get things just perfect today or tomorrow. ;) Here are some Bible verses that I like to remember when I feel anxious, overwhelmed, discouraged, etc. in this area.
Jesus said, "Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?" (Matthew 6:27, NIV)
Reminder to Self >>> Worrying adds nothing to Your Daily Lifestyle. It's an action that subtracts from Your Productivity. Worry is a distraction from your positive actions.
Jesus said, "Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own." (Matthew 6:34, NIV)
Reminder to Self >>> Whether you're alone or with other People, some form of "trouble" is guaranteed to occur... =/ Enjoy every bit of Peace when you can get it! ;)
King Solomon said, "I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil--this is the gift of God." (Ecclesiastes 3:12-13, NIV)
Reminder to Self >>> Carpe Diem! AKA - "Seize the Day!" Enjoy yourself whatever you are doing. Don't ruin Work by worrying about Play. Don't ruin Play by worrying about Work. B/c when the moments over, it's gone for good. ;)Thank you for wanting to get to know me better. ;) I will be answering your FAQs on an ongoing basis, so check back laters for more answers. Talk more soon, RUTH
