Decide to step out of your comfort zone and try taking a step toward your goals. Take baby steps toward where you would like to be. It’s important to be content with where you are at, but at the same time, it’s also good to reach for goals that will help your long-term (and short-term) life be more fullfilling, peaceful, and true to who you are ultimately meant to be.
Even if you do fall, that’s okay. Don’t quit. You may find that you can “fly” and experience life in amazing, wonderful ways.
” “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, what if you fly?” – e.h.

Samsung.com has developed the above infographic to explain some of the biggest time wasters of people who work outside the home. Whether you have a desk job, a more labor-type job, work from home, or you are a stay at home parent, it’s easy to get caught up in tasks that use up your time that might not necessarily be the best use of time, not when it comes to wanting to be our most productive selves.
Look at your habits, how you spend your time, and take a close look at what might be reducing your productivity. Then, if you would like to get more done in less time, decide how you will change those time-wasters.
Comment below on what reduces your productivity or what helps you to be more productive.
I like to think of myself as a hard worker who is committed to the many roles I have in life as well as in fulfilling all those roles in a high quality manner, but despite how hard I work or how much I press on, there are times when I feel stressed, overwhelmed, and stuck.
I am thinking that you can relate. You have probably experienced times where you just could not overcome that feeling of frustration, of having weight on your shoulders…

Life can be stressful, challenging, and overwhelming. There is so much to do or at least it can seem that way. In the chaos of life, we can feel unsettled, uncomfortable, anxious, and discontent. To overcome these possibilities, it can be helpful to pause and reflect on positive messages. Give yourself a moment to just breathe, relax your body and your mind, and focus your attention on a brief but meaningful message, whatever that happens to be for you. Read some of the following quotes to feel a sense of encouragement and hope.
Stress Less; Stress is Poison
Many people, including myself, experience life to be overwhelming at times. It seems like life is so busy, so full of things to do. Do you feel like you constantly run from one thing to the next? Even if your life allows you some down time, you might still feel a sense of being unsettled or possibly even guilty about that free time.
Society seems to have an expectation that pressures us to have to be busy, to have to over-exert our energies onto more and more activities. In addition to the amount of work we feel we are expected to get done in any given amount of time, there are people to take care of and other people’s needs and wants we have to consider (kids, significant others, bosses, our relationships).
Raising kids can be tough. Parenting is a difficult job. It requires lots of selflessness, energy, time, and of course expressing lots of love. At the same time, parenting is a job like nothing else. Parenting is an experience that is, despite its demands, something parents (at least most parents) wouldn’t trade for anything.
In today’s world, there are lots of things kids need to learn. There are lots of things our kids are going through that both negatively and positively impact who they are, how they feel about themselves, how they feel about the world, and how they relate to others. As a parent, we are there to guide, support, teach, love, understand, and model many different values, lessons, and behaviors.
