So I’m publishing this post on Saturday due to me missing Thursday’s and Friday’s postings. Although, it was for good reason (working on the STEM initiative at my part time job) I began to wonder about time management. If we all have 24 hours, and we do, then how can I make it better serve me? How do some make it work for them and it seems to past others by?
For awhile now I’ve been blogging Monday-Friday and I really like keeping in contact with you guys. Initially I was posting Monday, Wednesday and Friday but somehow this became more comfortable. I realize that I do need to start posting at a certain time even if it means scheduling it in advance. The issue I’m having with that is I like to talk to you guys about things as it arises in my spirit (short for I feed off of vibes).
Before my job ended, I had an urge to begin good practices. I wanted to form habits that would create a better life. I knew if I could just institute these things it would work. So I started thinking about what I would do if I had the time. I wanted to read more, meditate, seek God, clean, cook more, workout, look into some self care and work on relationships.
So I put into place a morning and night routine. My morning starts at 5 am (at least it should) with the Shema (Jewish prayer), I write 5 things I’m grateful for, deep breathing exercises, guided meditation with the help of YouTube, affirmations, monthly declarations, prayer, praise music and my skin care routine before my shower. My night routine is my skin care routine, a bath and reading a couple of pages of my current book.
For whatever reason, I haven’t been able to wake up at 5. Even when I was working, I woke up at 4 and if I ever overslept I would wake up at 6 but never at 5 and it’s really getting on my nerves. I feel like if I could just wake up on time it would be the key to success and I don’t know if this is super deep but I wonder if my subconscious is trying to keep me from it.
This morning it occurred to me, speak to time. (I hope that’s not to spooky for you) So I did it. I apologized for mistreating time. I recognized time as something more than a fleeting occurrence but as a significant force. I asked for help in how to respect it more. This seemed weird for me to do it and the jury is still out if it will work. Have you ever done anything like speak to the elements or atmosphere? I speak to the elements all the time and believe this was similar.
Anyway, let me know if you can relate and what are some practices you’ve put in place that you feel will bring success? I’d love to try them to see if they can assist me.
Love you guys,
