Getting my life organized
Thursday, June 23, 2011
I had a lot to get done today, but only accomplished a small portion of it. It's funny how working out can end up taking up the whole morning! I'm in the middle of a job hunt, so that took up a good chunk of my day -- but at least there was some promising movement in that area. Then there was the time spent on SP! However, between those three activities (plus reading the paper, preparing and eating meals, and choir practice), I never did get to the grocery store, and didn't even get started on the massive office cleanup that I had planned.
We're always told that we can make time for the things that are really important to us. But I find that hard to put into practice, when there are so many priorities competing for my precious waking hours! Exercise, Bible study, work, volunteer activities, food planning and preparation, time communicating with family and friends.... The list goes on. My challenge is to organize my day each day to get the most out of the time I have available to me.
Tomorrow (okay, I'm so behind in my blogging that it's today that I'm talking about!) I will start my day out with prayer, a devotional, and a plan for the day that will get me a step or two closer to my goal of organization and weight loss.
