I never seem to have enough time to get done the things I need to get done so I can just be done, and then move on to the endless list of things I wanna get done....
Okay, that sounds like crazy-talk. I know.
But c'mon. Don't you ever feel that way?
The urgent to-do list eclipses the really-important, heart-priority to-do list.
Time-management is a talent I definitely missed.
Of course the wisened counselors in my life (you know, the ones without 14 extra feet underfoot), would say that I'm just not really prioritizing my true priorities.
I've discovered I'm not so talented in the priority-setting area. But I'm loaded with skill in the way of puttin'-out-fires! Some days I'm lucky to find the time for a shower, in between all the fire-puttin-out. Then there are days when I'm still in my stinky running shorts at dinnertime (who me?)... But every now-and-again, I have a day when I'm talented enough to actually get up before the children for prayer-time, and am amazed to find myself clean & fresh & dressed for the day before breakfast. (I know - wow, right?)
The really crazy thing is, I know of domestically-talented moms of big families who always get up at dawn to pray & then slip into their skirts & headcoverings & make big breakfasts, and still smile & kiss hubby, and find this truly incredible joy in it all. Somehow I just didn't get that early-riser-hospitality-domestic-goddess talent.
And really? That's okay.
I've gotta stop wishing for the talents I didn't get - and embracing the ones He gives me.
So - despite the fact that I recorded this little video blog something like three weeks ago - I'm posting my second attempt at saving-typing-time-by-story-telling-it-instead.
'Cause maybe I've got talent after all.
What bag-of-talents have you been given?
What are some ways you're re-investing those talents?
