In our crazy world, sometimes it seems like there’s never enough time in the day. I know I certainly feel this way sometimes between working full time, trying to get my exercise in, cooking healthy meals, keeping up with the house, and still trying to find time to relax and focus on side projects and other things, while also sleeping can be quite the juggling act sometimes. And usually, while doing this juggling act, something slips to the wayside. For a lot of us, it may be something related to our goals, and sadly, it’s so important for us to take the time to focus on our goals.
I know it’s hard to make time for things, trust me, I do. With everything going on, and if you have kids, you have their schedules in addition to your own, but you have to take the time to focus on your goals. Set aside a chunk of time, whether it’s 30 minutes in the morning before everyone else is up or it’s an hour at lunch to just focus on your goals, no matter what they may be. Maybe you’re trying to race in a marathon but can’t find time to train or you’re trying to learn how to cook, but never have time to actually take lessons or watch videos. Make the time! It’s so important and I’ve found setting out a chunk of time is the only way I can force myself to get it done. Otherwise, the days pass to quickly, and before I know it, I’m in bed, getting prepared for another day.
Sometimes, it can feel like life is trying to pull you under. Wave after wave just keeps coming at you, and you may feel like you’re drowning or struggling to catch your breath. Trust me, I’ve been there, and I’ll be there again, that’s just how life is sometimes. Timing never works out the way we want, but there is one thing you can do. Just keep swimming. Keep working on yourself, keep finding the good in the bad, and keep taking one day, one step at a time. Keep the faith, and just keep swimming, swimming, swimming.

Do your small part to use less waste. There are a few ways you can do this, swap out your ziplocks for plastic containers, bring a reusable water bottle, and try biodegradable face wipes instead of ones that have to be thrown away and take years to break down.
Whether it’s blasting your favorite song on the way to work or seeing a rainbow after a storm, find the joy in little things. Happiness isn’t a destination, it’s a journey.
Breakfast is always busy, so make some extra time to have a sit down breakfast with your kids. Both you and they will appreciate the time to chat about your days.
Whether you are at church or in your neighborhood, go welcome a stranger or someone you’ve never been introduced to formally. This is a great way to meet new people, especially those new to the area or just those you haven’t made time to speak with before.
