I left the junior high last week after a class meeting with the counselors where we planned out Robby’s high school course selection. 🙄 You know, the meeting the length of one class period, where you and your 8th grader plan out his entire life?!🤯
While it is crazy to think about this topic, we were prepared! Robby and I had already talked about options and his interests. We already spoke of his interest in computers and programming so that will be the endorsement he will pursue. ❤💻
I was surprised how many parents were not at the meeting. I’m very thankful that I have the flexibility in my schedule to make a mid-day meeting, I know others aren’t able to do so. The best part of the meeting was Robby giving me a hug bye in front of his friends and teachers. 🤗 Sometimes, just showing up is the love that they need!
TODAY could be… Your last day of struggling. Your last day of headaches. Your last day of exhaustion. Your last day of hitting snooze. Your last day of discomfort and digestive issues. Your last day of negativity. Your last day of irritability. Your last day living in a fog. Your last day of saying “just survive this day”.
Your only obstacle is a decision you keep putting off!
YES! 3 very simple steps done in the first 20-40 minutes of your day can provide you with all of that and then some! Stop putting off taking care of yourself! There’s a New Year SPECIAL that ends tomorrow! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
I love finding the little joys in life. This morning, I was able to order my groceries online instead of spending 1.5 hours at the grocery store. When I went back to add items to the order, not once but twice, no one was frustrated with me over my forgetfulness. 🤣🤷♀️
Sometimes we have it all together, and other times, we are just trying our hardest to figure it all out, but finding joy in the journey is the key. Oh, and not having to worry about money for groceries, there is joy in that too…❤😍💯
Have you evaluated your goals to make sure they are your goals? 🤔
I’m not talking about your dreams, but the actual goals to achieve in order to make your dreams come true. Are they yours? Or do they belong to your boss, your team leader, your director, your spouse, your friend, etc? Is the goal something you just think you should be going after because that is what is expected of you? Has your goal changed, but you are afraid to make the change?🤷♀️
Use these last few months of the year to evaluate your goals, the direction God wants you to go, and make the necessary changes if needed. Change is hard, but change is good. If your goals haven’t changed, then chase after them hard with discipline and belief! 💪
There are options available to you to help you achieve YOUR goals… some may be in an unfamiliar package, but it is worth checking out! Message me if you want to hear more about these options! 😍
Let’s look back at our week and everything we got done or hoped to get done. What did you accomplish? Not much? 🤷♀️
I can relate! It’s something I’m working hard on improving! I want to be more intentional with my time so that I actually get the things done that are a real priority to me.
I know that I work best with a deadline, but that usually only applies when I’m accountable to someone else. When I have an order to fill or a request for help from church, I have no problem getting these things done on a timely basis. However, if it’s a priority for myself, my personal business, or my home, these things usually get pushed to the side because there is no urgency in completing them…even though its important to me.🤦♀️
It’s time to take back my schedule. On Sundays I will create a plan of action for the week. I will put on the calendar all of my family priorities such as games or meetings, and then I will start intentionally adding my personal priorities to the schedule. Let’s see what I can actually accomplish by next week when I evaluate how things went. The list of accomplishment has to be longer than this week was. 🤣
I once asked a very successful woman to share her secret with me. She smiled and said to me…
“I started succeeding when I started leaving small fights for small fighters.
I stopped fighting those who gossiped about me…
I stopped fighting with my family…
I stopped fighting for attention…
I stopped fighting to meet peoples expectation of me…
I stopped fighting for my rights with inconsiderate people..
I stopped fighting to please everyone…
I stopped fighting to prove they were wrong about me….
I left such fights for those who have nothing else to fight…
And I started fighting for my vision, my dreams, my ideas and my destiny.
The day I gave up on small fights is the day I started becoming successful & so much more content.”
Some fights are not worth your time….. Choose what you fight for wisely.
