Hello, I'm Here For The Position Of Time Manager

 Is time management a real career option? It should be. It's hard work.

I have a hard time assigning everything to a time and sticking to it. If I begin to feel overwhelmed with a certain task currently at hand. I choose flight over fight. I pretty sure I'm using this method out of context, but it seems as though I want to run away and do something less stressful and demanding (like blogging) until I can get myself together and get back to work. 

It sounds normal. As I re-read everything that I wrote, I'm thinking well, that's a pretty normal thing to do.

 Anyway, I need to better manage my time. I have seen how well things go when everything is done within it's time slot. I can sleep well at night knowing that I've had a pretty productive day. I'll have to get back to that; I'm only getting older.
I've been trying to become more productive ever since someone pointed out Proverbs 6: 6 to me. It reads, Go to the ant, you sluggard; observe it's ways and be wise. I felt insulted at first (obviously, right?) but then I realized that was something that I truly needed to hear. I still don't wake 5am every morning and have a productive hour until 10pm when I got to bed to do it all again, but I'm working on my own ways of being productive. 

I hope you will too. 
Enjoy your day and remember to be wise

All's Well...

 I have been away from the 'blogosphere' for quite some time. I apologize to anyone who  came along expecting to see a new post.

I had a fantastic summer with my family and I fully enjoyed life for those two months. I admit, that like many other kids out there, I was disappointed to see my summer take it's departure. I take courage knowing that it will return next year, God willing. 

I am ready for this fall and all that it has to bring. I started classes today and I will (sadly) pack away my t-shirts and flip-flops to pick up boots and books. I find that things go a lot smoother when you simply wrap your mind around it, remembering why it needs to be done and what will come of it. 
I read a quote on Facebook today that read, "You can be who you choose to be. It's an act of discipline, but it can be done." I have resolved that I will work to a point where I can be pleased with my efforts to do what needs to be done. There is nothing that I can't do when God is on my side (Phil. 4:13).

Summer is just about over and it feels like it's talking a piece of me with it, for more reasons that the obvious. I'm happy though, knowing that all's well that ends well. I'm ready for whatever is ahead.

Enjoy your day and may the joy of the Lord be your strength!
