Okay friends, it’s time for strategy. We can look at our circumstances as a frustration or a fascination. We can see it as a liability or an opportunity.
I’m choosing opportunity and I want to help you do the same!
We have the opportunity to be intentional about our self-care, our relationships, and even taking care of the home we live in.
Sometimes we need a little vision. A plan. Some ideas that get us heading in the right direction.
Everyday for the next 21 days at least (more if we need it!), I’m going to provide you with an Opportunity Plan for the day. These will be simple “bite size” suggestions to help you use your time well in this season of family togetherness.
I have one rule for using it: Grace. Give yourself grace and have realistic expectations for your stage of life, size of family, and your circumstances. If you have a sick kid, you may need to do nothing but hold and rock for a day. That’s also an opportunity!
This isn’t a “to do” list you need to check off. Instead think of it as an idea list to get you thinking about how to intentionally use these unique circumstances! Adjust in whatever way works for you.
If you’d prefer to receive them in your email inbox every morning, you can subscribe here.
Here’s Day 1:
Participate in a church service online. If you don’t have a church home, I invite you to check out my church’s online service at www.eastview.church.
Pull a book off the shelf you’ve been meaning to read. Read the first chapter.
Ask each other, “What do you need today?” Then work to help meet that need for each other.
Everyone outside for 15 minutes minimum each day.
Pull out a game you haven’t played in forever.
Do 20 squats (It’s okay to split them into four sets of 5 or 2 sets of 10!)
Clean out and organize your silverware drawer.
Put all dirty clothes in hampers.
You’ve got a unique opportunity today! Use it well!

If you still don't see it, make sure you check your Junk/Spam/Promotions folder. If it's in there, you'll want to mark me as a "Safe sender" so it doesn't end up in that box again! So glad to welcome you to my blog family!
