It’s mid- August and I haven’t posted on my blog since June?! It makes me want to cry! Why am I calling myself out on my own blog?! Because knowing this got me thinking about the topic of priorities and scheduling time for what means the most. I’m a prime example of this. Check it – writing is my number one; my love, my one and only and yet, life and work crept its way in and allowed me to put my number one passion on the back burner yet again. Even though I’m passionate about; it’s not just going to happen on its own. How many times has this happened in my life?! Too many to count. It just makes me realize that you truly have to schedule in time for EVERYTHING in order for it to actually happen. For example; I had a goal of writing a book since I was 16 and it wasn’t until I took a sabbatical from my entire life for an entire month that I was able to get that book draft done! If that’s not proof; I don’t what is.
If we as humans waited until we “felt” like doing something; my guess is that we might not get much done. At least in my case; that might be the way it is. HA! I’ve found that whenever I put my self-care and my passions on the back burner I end up feeling a lot worse…about everything. I’ve learned that even though I “don’t have time” in my day to dedicate to getting quiet with myself, my thoughts, my message and actually sitting my booty in the seat to type the words out; I must MAKE TIME. My soul and spirit light up when I’m writing. When I hit post I get a little excited and knowing that my words could impact someone; it seriously keeps me going. I believe it is truly my calling to write, share and inspire others!
The lesson I’d like to share on this topic is this: If there’s something you’ve been “meaning to do”; something that “whenever you have time” you plan to do – throw that plan out the window! Hate to break it to you, but it’s never going to happen honey. You must MAKE time – whether it’s setting a reminder to take a walk to get away from the computer, or blocking out time on your calendar to ahem (post blogs or something?), or even calling someone. Our world moves entirely way too fast for us to keep up with every single thing we need “to do” that simply crosses our mind. Write it down. Schedule it. Put it on your calendar. Make time for the tasks and people that light you up; you will be much happier and fulfilled because of it!
How do you keep yourself on track? I’d love to hear your stories.
Love and Light, Tianna Leigh
