It's always a choice

I started thinking about this blog earlier in the week. I thought it's a choice about what I eat. That got me thinking what other choices we have...

1). We have a choice on how we spend our time. I'd love to sit down & read a book or magazine. But I have to study for my grad classes & the GRE. That means instead of getting lost in a book, it's highlighting a textbook.

2). We have a choice on the time we spend with our significant other. Do you pass like two ships in the night? Or do you carve out of your busy schedule time to spend with them. Talk to them, LISTEN to them, and have fun together.

3). Time for yourself. This I find hard for me as a lot of women & Mom's understand. When the house needs to be cleaned, dishes washed, and kids demanding attention, it's hard to say "Hey!! Time out, I need an hour away!!". Even though I come back a much better person when I do.

4). Do I take time to take care of myself? This means eating right, exercising, & getting enough sleep (haha on the sleep one). I need time to myself to recharge or I wear down & get irritable. And I find I'm not as good as a wife or mother if I don't recharge. That also means spending time with God each day so he can recharge my batteries too.

Gotta get going...till next time
