As I get older, I’m realizing just how short life is. As a child and teenager, I wiled away the lazy summers and time after school never thinking about the preciousness of time.
I don’t have a Time Vampire (TV) because I spent about 6-7 hours a day, EVERY day watching it for about 18 years. Even if I never look at a TV screen again for the rest of my life, no one could ever accuse me of not having watched enough of the stuff (…and you know how people throw around such accusations 🙂
People talk about mission statements a lot. I’m starting to understand why. There are so many things to do, so many places to go, so many people to love, so much TO DO. What am I going to choose? For the last few years I feel that I have made little progress because my efforts, energy, time are scattered…for example, right now I’m;
-trying to lose weight, journaling my intake, trying to hit the gym regularly
-write a blog entry every day ’cause I love it its a passion…the fans are screaming for more, I can’t disappoint..:)
-set up a morning and night routine which includes reading my Bible & conversing with God
-work on my dating life (whatever that means..hehe 🙂
-serving in my church as a shepherd to several people (counselling, praying with them, hanging with friends)
-read more books
-take care of my family needs as there is a serious illness afoot
….ETC….(and really this is not the end of the list by any measure)
WHEW!!! I’m exhuasted just looking at it.
I need FOCUS because I want real change. How I’m going to find that and live it is a challenge. Any ideas?
