It’s been one of those trying weeks.
A week where you’re holding on so tight that you’re lusting over the idea of letting go.
A week where you’re racing around and around but your list never seems to get shorter.
A week where one tasteful glass of wine is not enough, or two for that matter.
It’s weeks like these that you seem to question anything and everything. Questions like… What am I doing with my life? Where is this going? Is this the right thing? the right time? What are you working toward? What are you choosing to spend your life doing? I reflected on my days and broke down my typical must-do schedule.
List of Necessary
- 7.5 Hours of Sleep (this is my goal amount)
- .5 Getting Ready for Bed (trying to get my skincare regimen going)
- 1 Hour of Working Out (for my health and confidence)
- .75 Getting Ready for Work (showering after working out is always good)
- 1 Hour of Driving (until teleporting is available)
- 9.25 Hours of Work
- 1 Hour Random Errands to tend to
- = 21 Hours
This means that I have 3 hours of time that I can purely do what I want to do. And I know, more of that list is going to continue to grow once I add in other elements, like a family.
Now, this is a terrible way to look at it, and I usually don’t look at my life that way. I tend to choose positivity, therefore, I smacked myself over the head after being a Negative Nancy this week. Each hour counts and it is yours to make lovely or terrible.
Why not enjoy that hour of driving with a great rendition of Rent, work with an attitude of constant learning, pray and relate with Jesus while running less-than-fun errands? Your days are what you make of them.
So get excited about your days and life! And, if you’re feeling particularly run down, remember we all have those days and times. Shake it off and bring it on!
- Joshua 1:9
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.
- Jeremiah 26:14
As for me, I am in your hands; do with me whatever you think is good and right.
- Peter 4:10
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another… Do it with all the strength and energy God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ.
- And finally…“Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically.” Romans 12:11
