As a new season of work starts, I am forced to sit down and re-prioritize my life. I say forced because I am tired even as I type. And it's a said thing to be tired before your season begins. This is going to be my season of blessings, prosperity and joy. And quite frankly, I want to have enough energy to enjoy the benefits that I will reap. Therefore, I need to re-prioritize. Some things are just gonna have to go!
Here's what is currently on my list:
-Training for that 10 miler or possible 1/2 Marathon (Monday, Wednesday, Friday)
-Working (Monday - Friday)
-Checking Stocks (Daily)
-Date Nights and Wife-ing (Friday Nights/Nightly)
-Family Time (Saturdays)
-Boy Scouts (Thursdays)
-Grocery Shopping (Saturday)
-Kids Baths (Daily....if possible)
-Chilling with my Sisters (Some Sundays)
-Blogging and Writing (Nightly)
-Zeta Phi Beta Sorority (Random)
-Reading (Whenever I'm breathing)
-Fellowshipping at Church (Sundays)
-Being a Mom/Adult (Daily)
And I'm sure that I am forgetting something. Anyhow, I don't want to work a full day 5:30am (wake up) - 4:30pm (leave work), only to then spend the next 4 hours (4:30pm - 8:30pm) ripping and running kids all over town for extra-activities. Not to mention homework, baths, and dinner. I mean seriously!!!! I'm only one person.
I want to be able to leave work with my kids and go home. Seriously, for the past 10 years, I have NEVER BEEN ABLE TO JUST LEAVE WORK AND GO HOME. And now I'm tired.
Sidebar......I don't think my heart can take much more either. Stress is more dangerous for my heart than jogging is!!!!!
My schedule for July is pictured here. July was a slow month. A SLOW MONTH. I had 4 days, out of 31, in which there wasn't anything planned. The kids extra-activities are not on this calendar. Neither is homework, baths, dinner, household errand and church. And if I don't prioritize and slow down, August could be a beast.
Plus, I don't want to be moving so fast that I run right past my blessing.
These are some of my thoughts, questions, comments and "could-care-less"...
