Last week’s check-in was based on TobyMac’s “Speak Life.” This week, I want to focus on Matthew West’s “Life Forever” and how to make each day’s 86,400 seconds count.
Make Time with God Count
I have now scheduled devotional time in the morning and study time before bed. This is going to make a big difference and keep my focus where it ought to be.
Make Time with Family Count
Now that the nice weather’s here, my hubby and I plan to go for a walk after supper several times each week. My daughter and I began our video study and are looking forward to working through Shaunti Feldhahn’s Life Ready Woman. I hope to start posting on our family Facebook site 1-3 times per week and Skyping with my sons and daughter-in-law every 4-6 weeks. I also want to periodically connect with extended family.
Make Hometending Count
I’ve scheduled a significant amount of time to prep supper and tend to decluttering and beautifying our home M-F. This has been too long neglected.
Make Time at Church Count
I have a few things on my Do When I Can list as church admin. I hope to get one of them done this week as well as my regular commitments.
Make Writing Time Count
I have scheduled one hour each day to focus on writing. While I will likely need to increase this, it’s a start.
Make Editing Time Count
Deep breathe and … commit two hours per day to editing. My clients have been so patient, but I don’t want them to have to wait any longer than is necessary.
Make Reading Time Count
The plan is to spend 30-60 minutes per day reading. It’s doable if I cut back on my time in front of the TV and on Facebook.
Make Self-Care Time Count
I got to the gym last week … and it was amazing, although I did hurt for days. But it was the good kind of hurt. I want to get to the gym 3-5 times per week, eat better, and drink far more water. As I mentioned, I plan to walk with my hubby after supper. Plus, once a month, I want to do one of the following: visit an art gallery, bookstore, or the library; take a photo walk; hang out at a coffee shop to read or write; or something similar.
Most of these plans are for M-S. I must set Sundays aside for an emotional and spiritual recharge day.
