So much for posting more often!
As usual, my life has been a whirlwind. Nothing too exciting is happening and some things that have been taking up a lot of my time and energy I can’t post about.
I said to my friend at work the other day that I want my life to be different. There are many things I am really content and happy with in my life – I am blessed, and I know it. But there are some other things – two in particular – that seem beyond my control and I get frustrated by my seeming lack of ability to change them. I am trying little things to try to make a difference in these areas of my life but then another problem arises and I am again discouraged. I know that things take time and I may need to start trying to just change small (very small) things one at a time and be patient.
Patience is not my thing.
So for now, here are a few things I want to try to do. Now that fall is upon us and a routine will be returning to my life (youth, Bible study, etc.), I feel like it is a good time to start implementing change. These things may sound stupid or minor to some but this list is frankly not for them! So bear with me, my loyal two or three…
*Start bringing my lunch to work four days a week
*Get up a half hour earlier each weekday
*Sort through some clutter that is affecting me more than it should by its sheer presence
*Work on my Bible study a little bit each and every day (we are doing The Beloved Disciple by Beth Moore – I can’t wait to begin!)
*Keep a running to do list out somewhere I can see it and make sure I am accomplishing the things I need to
So that is all for now…nothing much more to say or report tonight. It has been a long weekend – mostly a good one – and I need to get to bed early so I can try to get my attitude adjusted for the week ahead.
One thought on “”
Patience is not normally my thing either. Adoption teaches me patience, whether I want it to or not. 🙂
I like your list of things you want to try to do. I bring my lunch to work nearly every day. If I eat lunch at work, then I get to leave an hour earlier. I dislike going out to eat.
