Here's to resting then getting back on track!

The domino effect of the events of last week led to failure of attending Walk club Saturday AM. πŸ˜ž In most cases, time is out of my control. I'm always on call for our kids and helping locals and other missionaries are in an as needed basis. It's great to balance as much as I can where I can with accomplishment.
Then there's the reality that I'm not superhuman and need to do what's humanly possible. Don't over book or commit.
Plus I know the value of planning. I encourage people all the time to make a schedule, write out a schedule, and have it planned on a calendar. I have both an electronic calendar and a handwritten calendar to also keep these things planned so they happen.
Our group had a workshop one time to plan out our perfect day and then do our best to reach it. I did it, and I honestly did it right away, I didn't have to evolve to get to it.
But then as life happens, something changed that plan, and it was hard to get back to it. I love Second Chances. So I am going to revisit my daily schedule, weekly schedule, and monthly schedule. I need to get back to being more intentional, more in control, and wise about my time. Having boundaries is wise and one needs to make sure others respect it.
So, I will allow myself to rest and relax with my kids. We need family time. This week, it's difficult to literally leave our neighborhood because of the crowds that come to our City, so I'll have time to do my schedule!
It will be priority to schedule my perfect day, not that I will probably achieve it right away but I should do my best to try. I also want to make sure I schedule family meals, family activities, and a workout schedule. If anyone else wants to do this with me, let me know. We can encourage each other to make sure we have it written down.
To have a plan is better than no plan at all.
The best thing about a plan is that it's there and all you have to do is implement it.
The best thing about a plan is that if needed, it can be subject to change.
No plan is a plan to fail.
Today I didn't want to miss walk club. But I still had other deadlines that I missed and time with family is most valuable, so there are sacrifices.
Here's to resting then getting back on track. Who's with me on planning?
Let's schedule our day.
Let's meal plan.
Let's activity plan.
Let's workout plan.
Workshop to plan, let's do this!
I'll be doing this next week.
