Life seems to be busy. Always. Not enough time. Not enough space. Not enough marked off of my to do list. Always thinking about what’s next & what else I need to be doing.
There’s just never enough hours in my day. This has become the theme of my life.
I decided to stop. To reflect. Where is my time going? How am I spending it? Am I being present in the things that are important to me? And most importantly, do the people in my life feel rushed or valued? I’m going to be honest, I hated the answers to these questions. They made me cringe.
My life was living me, I was not living my life. At all.
So, I set out on a mission at the beginning of this year. Due to my career & my commitments, my life will always be a little chaotic(and to be totally candid, I’m a sicko that actually likes it that way). But I knew I could evolve my life to a place where I was actually living it. To be present. To be intentional with the time I do have.
I purchased the planner that maps out every hour of the day, rather than just the tasks for the day. I decided to really be purposeful with my days, my time & my people.
I’m challenging myself to pick up the phone & text less. To put the phone away when my people are in front of me. To listen. To enjoy this moment as a gift. To shut off the TV & go to bed early. To let go of the things that were consuming my time & make time for things that feed my soul. To connect with people. To fall passionately in love with this life that God has given me.
To live a life of intention. This is my mission.
