where’s my focus???

My word this year is FOCUS but somehow I’ve misplaced it. I constantly find myself forgetting important dates and appointments. Colin’s six-year checkup has now been moved to April. Hello McFly!

This year part of my “focus” is to be directed toward my health. I’ve been eating healthier. Go me! I’ve been exercising. Are you ready to ZUUUUMBA? But one thing that is lacking is sleep, precious sleep. I’ve been staying much too late to be functional in the morning. Believe you me, I need to be functioning ideally around 6:30am. I have two early risers and let me just say they wake up before me EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I don’t want my day to start like that. I would like to greet my children with a “good morning hug” as soon as they walk out of their room, not the other way around. So with that said, I’m going to endeavor to go to bed by 10pm. No later. Maybe earlier. That way I can get enough sleep to wake up early for a little quiet time of my own before the day gets set into motion. I’m also hoping that a stricter bedtime will lift some of the brain fog I’ve been experiencing. I constantly find myself walking into a room only to forget why I’m there in the first place? Crazay! In the days nights ahead I will be meditating on this verse…

It’s useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone. Don’t you know he enjoys giving rest to those he loves? Psalm 127:2 (MSG)

Thank you Jesus for the gift of sleep. Help me to eliminate the word “hurry” from my vocabulary this week. Thank you for reminding me to rest in you. Amen.

    the days that i beat my boys out of bed and get something accomplished, even if it’s just a shower . . .those just feel like better days. but sometimes i’m in bed BEFORE 10pm and Holden’s not even allowed to leave his room until 7:30. ha! crazy how in your younger days you can go without much sleep. like college. but now, give me 8-9hours please!

  2. I have been struggling with sleep as well…just can’t seem to make myself go to bed before midnight, which then leaves me running on six hours of sleep. Not okay! I have got to become more disciplined in that area. I’m going to die when I have kids;)

    Way to go for getting the healthy eating and exercising in – that’s huge!!

    P.S. LOVE the bangs on you!
