Hey friends, how many of you are feeling challenged by priorities and obligations? I know we have talked about time management before and how to best use the time you have, however, I’d like to expand on priorities.
Why are priorities important? Priorities allow you to not only manage and balance your time, but they help you stay focused on what’s most important.
Remember, you are not all things to all people nor should you be. If this is you and you feel you have to fix, correct, and be there for everyone, this is false burden bearing; meaning you are carry luggage and other peoples’ burdens on your shoulders and it’s weighing you down! First, I must add false responsibility will never get you ahead. In order to even prioritize, I encourage you to give those roles back to those that you took it from and guide and direct others to individuals that can either assist them or to resources that will guide them accordingly. We must not fish for others, but teach them how to fish and be self-sufficient; this means taking care of you and modeling a healthy relationship and lifestyle and working on your own to be the best you can be!
For all of you amazing friends today…just a reminder….
When you wake up on the wrong side of the bed….
When your schedule does not go as you planned it…
When your order is out of order…
When you cannot find the shirt you want to wear and you were positive you washed it….
When you lock your keys in the car….
Are you getting overwhelmed trying to keep track of your schedule?
Are you finding you forget what things you need to take care of during the day or week?
Are things easily slipping your mind and you miss the due date for registration, entry, or assignment?
If you answered yes to any of these questions friends, here are a few tips and strategies to help you stay more organized and on top of your week:
1) Invest into yourself by purchasing a planner. Planners can be found at almost any store, including the dollar store. You don’t have to get the fanciest one, just one that you can take simple notes in and write your appointments down with. Planner can be 8.5×11 or a small planner that you keep in your purse or briefcase.
Taking the Bulimia a step further, I chose to look at digging down to the root of the excessive guilt. The guilt was enough for me to flash back to the abusive behaviors that I encountered growing up. In fact, many of the things this family member spoke over me, I found myself repeating to myself.
The pattern I now find myself fighting to overcome is emotional response or trigger, response to food usually in a small quantity now, then excessive guilt leading to flash back and repeating words spoken over me in my past, and finally me having to fight to reject the seed now rather than respond.
