I Don't Have the Time to...

Yes, it's been quite some time since I've posted anything on this blog.  It's not for lack of ideas/topics; I have an opinion on everything.  Oftentimes my mind is overloaded with thoughts; writing is my cathartic release.  One would think I would write/post far more often than I have... ultimately it comes down to the "I don't have the time..." excuse. 

When people say, "I don't have the time to..." the truth is not necessarily having time but making the time.  If something is important enough we will always make the time. 

Every day we wake up by the grace and mercy of God (Allah) and are given 24 hours.  Whether you believe in God or not, this is an indisputable fact.  People around the world aspire to greatness and accomplish the (seemingly) impossible with the same 24 hours you and I get each day.  We are the managers of our own time.  What kind of manager are you?

I'm a busy mama of three little monsters.  I homeschool.  I cook (nearly) everything from scratch every day.  I exercise 5 days a week, usually at a minimum of an hour.  I typically keep a clean and tidy home (although I concede I'm blessed enough to have a cleaning crew help with the major cleaning every couple weeks).  I get a LOT done throughout my day. 

Although I'm fairly confident in my time management abilities, there are definitely areas with room for improvement.  Namely, I need to spend less time on the computer and a bit more time in prayer and the remembrance of God.

I also have the desire to write/blog more often and will endeavor to make time for it.  I need to post an update on my amazing weight loss journey (I've reached my goal!), share my recent sewing projects and recipes, etc... 

Stay tuned (and feel free to nag me if I fall off the writing/blogging time management wagon)!
