It's about time....
Monday, September 22, 2014
Well, I am back and excited for this challenge. I am thinking about what I want to do differently. It seems as though I know what I need to do to be successful, but I let other “needs” get in the way. If someone else needs help, I am there. If a co-worker needs ideas, I am there. If the house is getting messy, I don’t ask for help, I do it. I know that I put in many, many more hours on my job than I should, but I am not happy unless all five of the levels that I teach have the best lessons I can provide. Something always has to give, and it is always time for “me”. I do not want to stop doing all of the above, but I do have trouble putting time (to plan meals, prepare healthy snack, work out, and sleep) as a high enough priority. I watch my husband. He is an amazing man and a true sweetheart. He, however, has no problem putting the gym first. He is there every day and often for several hours. I need to find a path a bit closer to his.
I cannot promise big change here. I have promised myself more time before. However, I will try very hard to allow myself more time and I will be more attentive to my needs. So, to be more specific, I plan to set aside time each weekend to put that “me” time on the calendar and, as much as possible, treat it like all those commitments that I am good at keeping.
Onward- to the best challenge yet!
