“You’ve only got 24 hours in the day, Kayse. Are you using them well?”
I called a mentor last week, because AGAIN, my plate was filled to the brim and overflowing. And not with food. No, I’d said yes to too many things and the ideals I had for this season just weren’t lining up with reality.
Sometimes, I think my season changes without me realizing it. That’s when I have to go back to the drawing board and start over. The schedule that was working well for us last month just isn’t working this month.
And really, that’s okay. That’s LIFE. But when I sit down with my planner and a notebook and start to chart out all that I’ve committed to vs. the mission we have for our family, I’m grateful that I now have a process that will help me get back on the right path, and quickly.
I’ve been overwhelmed by life more times than I can count. (This may go down in history as the biggest understatement ever.) I’ve often felt like I knew what I wanted my life to look like, but I just couldn’t figure out how to get there.
I lived like that for a long time, floundering at many things and always, always, always feeling behind.
And then, a couple of years ago, I made one simple change.
Instead of living overwhelmed, I sat down and actually looked at everything on my plate. I wrote it all out. I made lists, said yes to some things and a whole lot of no’s to other things, and prayed desperately for direction. I got really intense about what mattered and what didn’t, and cut the clutter so I could focus on the things that were truly important.
From there, I made a new plan. In just a few days, I’d cleared my previously overfilled plate to something I could now manage.
And it freed me up to actually enjoy my life in that season, instead of feeling like something didn’t fit.
I’ve come back to this process time and time again when life gets overwhelming, and it’s what I came back to this week. I needed a new game plan, a new routine for our days. Our season had changed, and my plans needed to change right along with it.
And while I sat and prayed and planned, I wondered if you might be in need of some changes too?
THIS is the exact process I use every time I need to get my schedule and my priorities on track again, and I know it will help you do the same!
