How do you find time to do all that you do?
I struggle with time management. I really do. For instance, I have 7 tabs open on my Chrome browser. Four of those browsers are for Facebook. One for this page. Another is for an author page I am working on a book launch/review with. Then, the last tab I have open is for a review company I have been with since 2002. I wonder if I have ADD? Oh yea, I am listening to a message about lying and it is on Lifechurch.tv. Not my usual cup of church. I tend to navigate towards IFB ( Independent Fundamental Baptist )
I am also spending time with a Jacks that keeps coming up to me in the office and wants to be picked up and spin in Nana’s chair. Or, I am fixing the Kindle for her, either putting on a drawing ap, or the piano ap, or putting on the Veggie Tale movie we have on there for her.
I tend to not stick with a schedule, though, I do better on them. But tell me I need to be up at 6 am, or even by 9am and I will laugh at you, unless I HAVE to get up at that time for something that is beyond my control.
So, you can surmise that spending time with God is not first on my list. I am ashamed to say that. I always make these huge plans on reading through the bible in a year at the beginning of each year. I tell myself each night as I go to sleep that I will get up, and I will pray and I will read some scripture. Instead, I get up each day, I grab my phone, I click on the alarm and shut it off. I then head to Facebook to see what is going on in the world. Yuck!
I know, I heard you. Bad Ginger. Truth be told, I bet you do it too.
I know I don’t have to wake up and pray. Prayer is good no matter the time. However, I want to put on the whole armor of God right away. So, I can be ready for the day. Any good suggestions? Let me know in the comments please!
Finding time to bake and cook. How does one do that? I LOVE cooking and baking. I will be making time for that. What is a blog without a cooking section?
I figured out a lot of my issue is with Facebook. I LOVE reading about other how other folks are spending their day. Or reading some newsworthy items. But, I tend to get involved with debates. I also tend to post silly stuff. So that said, time on FB is going to be severely limited. Plus, I am cutting my FB down to whatever helps me grow as a Christian, an AVON rep, or a blogger. I will keep various friends and family. But will be limiting my time on that. Most of them really do not post like I do. I am sure there are those that have limited my postings. I tend to post things that are very political and religious that does not really help anything other than getting me tagged as a pain.
I spend far too much time doing things I should not be, and not enough time what I should be doing. So, if you don’t hear from me, especially on FB, you now know why. I have much to be doing, much to look forward to. Spending time on the computer other than for work is not a good idea. I will continue to blog, I will continue to do all my other commitments. I love blogging. I have a few blog posts in mind. I have a few idea’s running through my head. Some will be ignored. Others will not like what I post. And well others, they might go well. We shall see.
