My lately has been completely unstructured, and yet totally wonderful. In some ways I feel so busy, working at a million different things and remodeling the house, and in others I feel like I’m just waiting for school (and thus substitute teaching) to start.
I’m a huge proponent for not wasting time. It’s my pet peeve when someone is obviously on Facebook too much, for instance. And yet, I often find myself on there way too much. 🙂 I want so badly to fill my days with useful things…things that matter in the kingdom of God. And yet, sometimes it’s easy to get off course. So, last Friday I sat down and tried something new. I made a weekly plan for my days, incorporating such aspects as chores, work duties, exercise, and food into one theme. I also set down some restrictions for myself regarding certain time wasters. hehe! Knowing how unstructured my life is, and how much more so it will be once I start subbing, I made a plan that is flexible and doable for every day…no matter what happens.
Now, I tend to be a bit obsessive about schedules. I absolutely love to-do lists, and planning my days down to the minute. Lately, however, God’s really been teaching me that I need to be flexible and spontaneous…to focus on the things that He gives me to do each day, and not on what I have planned each day. So, can I be spontaneous in my days and still redeem the time God has given me? We shall see!
I’ve decided to give you a peek once a week into these “daily plans” I have concocted. And so I present, Monday.
