Time Out Thursday - Not So Much
So the whole point of Time Out Thursday is to carve out some time for me. Well, to be perfectly honest that was very difficult for me this week. Yes, I went to Ladies Bible Study Last night for a couple hours, but other than that, nada, nil, nothing.
I have been busy this week, but not more than normal. So not sure why it was so difficult to give myself a "timeout". I know that meeting the needs of my family is important and my God-given purpose but I also know that if I do not take time for myself and burn out, I cannot be effective for my family.
These next couple days are very busy too, my daughter's 3rd birthday party (Princess Theme - go figure!), Church, doing extended child care in my home, and preparing for Canadian Thanksgiving next weekend. I have family visiting from Manitoba at that time, so that is some extra "stuff" for me to deal with next week.
One thing I have realized from reading various authors on time management is sometimes, you just need to add yourself to your "to do list". If that means pencilling in a time on your calendar than DO IT!
So now I have pencilled in some "me time" for this upcoming week and I know it will be so much easier to do it! I hope to update you with a more intriguing "Time Out Thursday" next week:)
God Bless Everyone and have a great day:)
