Frazzled World

by C. LaRene Hall

The new year has just begun and already I feel like my life is out of control. I set many goals, but I'm having a hard time making them work and it's only day four. Do you have that problem?

I think my life is out of control.

Hopefully it won't get this bad.

So far I've only written one other blog and the things that I've written for work or my church calling. I've written nothing for myself - nothing on any of my many stories. I'm disappointed in myself.

I love setting goals because that is how I get things done. I just didn't plan on life getting in the way. The other thing that helps me is time management. For years I always plan out every single day. Until then I didn't realize how much time I was throwing away doing things that were not important.

The month of January is going to be interesting because already my calendar is plenty full. Too much to do and not near enough hours. I wish I could find a good balance. So far it looks like the beginning of each week starts out smooth but by Thursday it's out of control.

I wish I had advice for you, but first I have to figure it out myself. I hope you are doing better on your goals for the new year and that you are planning out your days so you have time to do the important things.

Hang in there, Connie. I think we can all relate to feeling like things are getting out of our control. I hope things get easier for you.

Sometimes when things go out of control the best way to gain it back is to set small goals for yourself. Pick something with an attainable goal and make it happen. The feeling of accomplishment can be a great motivator for your next goal.
