Changing Gears: Time Managment

So I’m in the middle of reading an ebook called Time Management 101 and I’m getting convicted of so many things. Friends on the outside looking into my life think that I have it made. While I am abundantly blessed in many areas of my life, things aren’t as peachy as they seem

I have plenty of faults (who doesn’t), along lot’s of worry and doubt about many of the things I’m doing. I get frazzled, frustrated and upset rather quickly and sometimes I feel like giving up on some things that mean a lot to me. This is all becuase I am overwhelmed. I’m overwhelmed because of poor time management. Now, before I read this book, I thought I had a pretty decent time management. Even though I’m starting my new routine tomorrow, I am still realizing that I’m doing too much.

Without going into detail about everything that I’ve realized, I do want to let you all know that I will be changing up my blog quite a bit. I sort of lost track with my goal. The overall purpose of this blog is to be an outlet for me (mainly), but have a few things to help out other mommies and mompreneurs. I have realized I’m going a bit off course.

One of the biggest things that convicted me while reading the ebook is that I am all over the place with my blog and am not using it to it’s fullest potential. So from here on out here are the things I will be blogging about:

    • My day
    • Recipes (original and found)
    • Activities to do with your toddler (as I find them and do them)
    • Devotionals (Jesus and God will be referenced A LOT on my blog).

I will still do giveaways, advertisements, and events (from time to time).  But I will not focus on craft projects. If I happen to do some, then I will mention them. But I’m not a crafty person. I was just trying to become one to help out other mommies!

I cannot turn myself into someone I’m not. I cannot be that superwoman that you see on the cartoon. Nor will I become that supermom that you see on TV, but I will be that Mom that puts her God first, family next, and herself last. Don’t get me wrong, I will still follow my dreams but I will just focus on which dreams fit my life at the moment. Not every dream is meant to be pursued right away. Sometimes God gives you dreams for the future. Some times those dreams He gives you are meant for someone else. It is up to you to decipher.

I believe that I’ve acted on some dreams that were meant for others, but I thought they were mine. But I now see that some aren’t for me and others aren’t meant for me right now. I hope all of this is making sense to you.

Yes all these thoughts and emotions stemmed from reading the Time Management ebook. There are only 24 hours in a day, you should want to fill them with things that matter most to you. Get rid of things that you don’t have a true passion for. If it’s not for you, then don’t do it. If you don’t like it, don’t do it.

I’m still excited about my blog and what it means to me. I hope to continue to gain momentum and excitement with it. I also pray that you will find encouragement and hope through my words and the dreams that are meant for you. Find what you’re passionate about and go for it. Listen and follow God and he will never steer you wrong.
