Keep a sheet in the laundry room to write down what you need (ie: girls need new socks, husband needs white shirts, etc.)

We’re Not Machines
Today we’re talking about the ebbs and flows of life. The seasons of our lives and how those changes. We’re not machines! And thus, it stands to reason that our needs change, our desires change, our motivation changes, our dreams change.
As women our bodies are already designed for cycles, why would we imagine that our lives, moods, abilities, passions, wouldn’t reflect this as well?
We’re not machines. Therefore;
- We should expect a cyclical nature to life, work, friendships, etc.
- We should expect to get tired and need rest.
- We should expect to need help.
- We should expect emotions.
- When you feel all these things, there’s nothing wrong with you!
