I’ve come to the realization I am not a superhero – I can not be involved in everything. I am finding myself pulled in too many directions. Work is requiring more, I need to study for my state test ( rapidly approaching in January. GULP), church involvement , although I love all of it, requires a great deal of my time, and then there is the usual stuff, laundry, dishes…… breathing etc.
I did not set out to become over-streched, or jump in all at once. The busyniess increasded slow and steady, a little here, a little there. But here I am, overwhelmed. So I am re-evaluating all of my commitments and how I spend my time. I’m prioritizing and working through which areas I can pull back from. Although I do not feel it is fair to flake out on areas I have already committed to, I am trying to figure out how I can be more reasonable with my time.
Time management has never been my strongest quality. I think I am going to have to be incredibly self-disciplined with my time in order to make it through the next few months. Self discipline? Yeah, I’m as good at that as I am with time management.
*Sigh* it might be a long few months.
