Why are some things so HARD?

So. Time management. To manage your time. You know, I was thinking about this the other night laying in bed. We have 24 hours in a day. We give 8 (most of the time) to sleeping. That leaves us with 16 hours. Okay, say we give another 8 to work. That leaves us with 8 hours. Now let's be really specific and say that we watch our favorite shows on TV that night and take away another 2. That leaves us with 6 hours. WHAT HAPPENS TO THOSE 6 HOURS?!?!

It blows my mind that I have 6 hours to do all of the random stuff to do. It sure as heck doesn't seem like that much. It feels like I have one hour to accomplish everything I need to. For example: gym, chiropractic's office, breakfast, shower, dinner, time with the family, hobbies, and such. If i have 6 hours every day to get all of those different things done, THEN HOW COME I CAN'T?!? What's sad is that i already took out the time for TV. So really, if I cut TV out, then I would have 8 hours. Geeez.

So that brings us back to time management. It is difficult and most of the time I suck at it. But I am working on it and hope to get better over the course of 2009. Who knows....maybe by the end of the year I will be so good at it, I could write a book. Although, knowing me, I probably wouldn't be able to find the time!

Possibilities are endless.

Wow. 2009. It's crazy to think about how time goes so fast! My husband is right, it is the ONE thing that we have no control over. It never changes and is always the same.

I am not going to lie. Despite the fact that a really important person in my life is going to be absent this year (physically), I am really excited about what 2009 is going to bring! Other than Tara being gone in 2009 (you bloodsucker :) I know that this year is going to be completely and entirely awesome. I have a husband that is more than I could have ever wished for. My sister comes home in Feb. I have an awesome job that I love. My kids are doing so amazing and learning and growing more than I could have ever asked for. I have an incredible small group. My family is supportive and totally rocks. God is finally revealing to me his purpose and plan for me, so this year is the first year of the rest of my life. He is allowing me to finally see it, and while it is a little overwhelming, it is extraordinary. I will reveal small parts slowly, so you all don't laugh at me. I do need your prayers though. Cause if anything that I have seen happens, it will all be God. Cause HE knows that I lack motivation, determination, and the discipline to follow through and make it real. I will say, that it starts with my job and my scarves/skinnies. And colors. Yes, definitely colors.

Let's just say that 2009 will be a year to shine my God colors. :)
