To do

I actually find myself enjoying turning away from distractions of this world. There are SO many out there & we tend to forget they’re there, but it is my favorite thing to do now a days! ( This is my 2nd cleanse! NO SOCIAL MEDIA, NO TEXT & BARELY USE OF PHONE) Which at first it kind of seems wrong to count yourself out of conversations or feeling “included” connected but every now & then we have to disconnect to reconnect.

One thing being, having a relationship with 🖤 My heavenly Father. But I wouldn’t be a woman of Christ if I didn’t share with you what I’ve done, learned and loved along the way.

The way I was going before cluttered my mind. My routine needed a REBOOT! I make lots and LOTS of list & plans. Also lots of trial and error before I find something that fits just perfectly. Note* I needed more consistency so this is what fits for my life. It is not for everyone but maybe the take away may help!

I’m a complete night owl! & Actually get some of my best work done at night but also first thing in the morning – But only before everyone is awake.

My daily To Do:

  • Say my prayer as soon as I open my eyes .. Short & sweet
  • BLOG/Write
  • shower, freshen up
  • MAKE COFFEE & Water bottle
  • Pick up anything left from the night before
  • Breakfast with my Daily Devotional (I’ve turned this into a mini study session as well) Takes less than 15 minutes using the SOAP method with scripture provided in the devotion for that day!. -S scripture –O observation –A application -P Prayer
  • Prep Dinner first thing or night before (School is back in session so lots of slow cooker meals)
  • Home school, appointments, shopping, attend to my little people etc.
  • Lunch for me is BREAK time. & then a little Free time!,
  • FOOTBALL Practice/Bible study meeting on Mondays nights/Church meetings etc.
  • Dinner
  • Baths
  • Chores (I find it more easier to do them at night & before bed. Go to sleep & wake up to clean house is a winwin)
  • Bible study, Reading, Small projects- New found LOVE for those busy days is listening to scripture! I learned this one from my new bible study group. It is refreshing, amazing and relaxing ALL while learning the word!

This is my Monday thru Friday routine it is usually more relaxed on weekends since we are back to FOOTBALL games and Sunday dinners etc. But even when I’m not on “schedule” I find myself still wanting to do a few of these really good habits I’ve created for myself.

I’ve also created 3 new binders to help keep me organized and on top of things! I have a Bible study binder, Household binder and my new Bizness binder which I’m very excited about! I like to make things fun & interesting. Creating new ideas to keep me motivated! But still on my task. Challenge myself to change and evolve.

At first this all seemed like a whole lotta work and no play… But when I realized that what you do behind closed doors matters! Not what it looks like on the outside or on social media. Your consistent hard work & dedication never goes unnoticed. Especially in the eyes of our Father. ❤

There are SO MANY good resources out there. I would try them all but you will probably drive yourself crazy. I will say this don’t be afraid to try something new if something isn’t working. Or tweak it to match your life and your relationship with Jesus. What works for some may not work for others but you won’t know until you try. Also stay excited about knowing and growing closer to Jesus. There are times we might feel blah about it but that just means you need to dig a little deeper or reach out, serve etc. This is a lifetime commit to become more like Christ. Most importantly we are not meant to take this walk with him alone. Do not hesitate to reach out to me or anyone you may feel can help you, guide you and walk with you in this journey. We were not created to be alone! ❤

Stumble …..

How can we LOVE each other if we are to busy and focused on ourselves all the time?

I for one understand the meaning of self love and self care , this was my selling point after all. But when does it become more than that? When everything is always me, me me me! I started this journey anxious, scared and in a weird time of my life. I always love to look back on my past post, one because they are still motivational in a sense -to be better writer & two to see my growth! Like life it is constantly changing so yes at a time, I instead only focused on ONE particular thing (that being myself)… I noticed how slowly but surely it’s shifts. Once you start to evolve you can’t just stop at where you feel is necessary. Like life you want to also continue to move!

Okay onto my point now. With that information I didn’t stick with it for too long because then I sound like a broken record! – Got my point across but That’s it!, It is the never ending train of coming back to the same place as before.. I’m still searching or still missing something! This is only momentary. I am going to try and find NEW ways to make it about MYSELF but still wonder why that isn’t working.. You might drastically lose all the weight you wanted, Make all the money from doing what you love or HAVE all these things that are supposed to make you feel better yet your heart isnt statisfied. Which then you lean on well this was all ME,! (this is where you then only blame yourself right) I mean it is all about you… The idea that you hold that kind of power to me now looking back is mind blowing!! Don’t get me wrong it is a truly satisfying feeling to be the one who did all the hard work and with your “self-control” conquer the great attitude and all.. But basically as I would say you are”playing God”. That is where you can either spiral inward become so selfish and self consumed .. Or more outward and I will probably need to have that talk in a later post but try to stick with me.

To hold the power. This way of thinking is that unlike others you worked harder or smarter so that makes you “better” right…. That kind of mindset is Toxic straight up! Humble yourself, I mean the harsh reality that not one man nor woman on this earth is any different than you as a human being. God created us all as his children … & As a mother I would or could not ever see one as more valuable or powerful than the others.. We if anything are stronger and more powerful together not just as I (the leader the mother) but together as ONE.

So basically this just sums up my entire post! Maybe I just need to become a meme writer or something!

I’ve learned entirely more than I have my entire life this past year! More & more as I try to understand that yes I want to be happy and healthy. But it has & is more than that. For me and for anyone who ever does come across my little blog. Not to say those things don’t matter because they do. But they aren’t the big goal of Life. Or even a determination of a temporary moment .. That moment being the long but short lived life given here on earth. & how your choosing to live it out most certainly matters!

To truly believe that we were created just to live a life here temporary is astonishing…

Some may not feel that they will ever need to come to God. I for one knew of and then some .. But the things I’ve grown to love and actually know are far more better than anything anyone has ever been able to tell me. So I say find out from yourself. 🖤 If you are like some doing everything you can possibly think of to complete ,happy , satisfied. But still have a thirst for more I’m telling you that thirst isn’t more money or to loose more weight! But it is peace, unconditional love, Family, Eternity.

This journey is never ending!! The more you learn the more you do. The more you do the more you want to learn more and more! We as beings can only know so much about ourselves until the things we want to know can’t be taught from yourself. Its a new life and a new way of thinking.

Planning has Begun!
