For quite some time I have been mildly irritated with life in general. Not unhappy – I love my family and my life, but something was not exactly right. Compounding the problem was a lack of motivation to change. So I just continued along frustrated but unwilling to change. Hmm…. If one of my kids continued doing something that wasn’t right and made no effort to change, we would be having a serious discussion. So I began praying and trying to see what I was doing that wasn’t working. It was so easy to see what everyone else was doing “wrong” that I had stopped working on myself. Time for a change.
- I need to make sure God is my first priority.
That should be simple, right? More time in prayer and study and less time on Facebook and reading fluff books. I am beginning to think Facebook is as addictive as nicotine.
- I need to focus on relationships with my family.
To do that, I need to spend less time on things that aren’t as important.
- I need to take better care of the household God has given me.
Balancing family relationships and household has always been a struggle for me. I seem to focus on one and ignore the other.
- I need to remember that I am a child of God that He loves and cares for.
If God cares for me, I should take care of myself also.
I’m planning to use this blog as a record of the changes and I making, have made, or hope to make.
