But I think I am beginning to realize something, as a mom it’s really hard to feel like I have accomplished anything at the end of the day. My time is very much consumed by a little three month old. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but I would like not to be at the end of my day feeling like I didn’t accomplish half of what I wished I would have.
So here I am realizing that it’s time to make a schedule. It’s time to sit down and look at my days and see where I have time and what I can do in with that time. I know that I need to be flexible at the same time as well. With a baby, days can’t always be predictable, but I am lucky enough to have him on a schedule right now that is pretty regular day to day.
I work from home right now, all of my church and ministry responsibilities I can do from home. I am so blessed to have a job that allows for me to stay home with Jase, even more of a reason to need to be proactive with my time. I am learning that if I don’t take control of my day and my time, then my day is going to take over my time. My devotion time is all over the place right now, and my house could really use some TLC (part of the reason is it’s still out of sorts because we’re still finishing up unpacking here and there).
Being a mom is a full time job. I feel like I’m feeding around the clock right now. But there’s more that I need to do alongside of being a mom. I have ministry, I have a house to keep up with, I have my devotions, I have this blog, I have a husband, and I have myself. So maybe it’s time to take control of my time before it takes control of me. It may take a couple weeks for me to sit down and work out what my time will be, but I know it will be good for me.
I am thinking of making this little command center somewhere in my house. I think it will be a great way to keep track of what I need to do on a daily basis and keep things organized.
