I set a major/not so major, but important, goal for myself last week. I've been feeling for the past little while that I just could not catch up. At the end of the day, even though it would be well after midnight, I felt like I still had tons of things to do.
Something needed to change. So! I thought about it and prayed about it, and realized that in order to keep my sanity and to become a better mom and person overall, I needed to start waking up before the kids do every morning for personal scripture study and alone time....which meant that I needed to start going to bed a ton earlier.
I'm happy to report that today, I'm 3 for 3 on keeping my goal. Oh yeah!!
2 days of the week, I take a 530am class at the gym and get home to do scripture study before the boys wake up. Well, before they're allowed to come out of their room....they wake up way too early. (This alarm clock for the boys has been a morning life saver.) And on the other days, I set my alarm for 620am to head downstairs and read.
Yes, it's only Wednesday, but I'm really hoping I can make this a habit, because these past few days have been so rewarding. I feel like I have a better handle on all my responsibilities, that I'm enjoying everything so much more, and surprisingly, I get things done before 10pm every night. (and if I don't, oh well! it has to wait because sleep is top priority.)
I hope y'all are having a great week! Have you set any personal goals for yourself this week?!
