Most of my goals for last week were around habits that I wanted to change in my own life.
Discipleship: I didn’t get to Daniel’s devotions though I did follow through on Nomi’s.
Must Do: Yes! I got some office work accomplished! Alas! No scrapbooking.
Homeblessing: My goal was to work for 1 hour on a daily focus. At the end of the week I can say most things were done but not necessarily on “the” day. I had a big catch up block of time on Saturday.
Relationships: My goal for this week was to find margin in my days. I managed to walk out of the house most days for a quick refreshing – generally at sunset. It is a sad thing of family life that 5.00pm-6.00pm is the busiest time inside the house but the most glorious time of nature. I read a lot more to the kids and we played a few games as well.
Intrapersonal: Yes, I asked myself many times, “Belinda do you have the freedom?” and unfortunately the answer was often “No you don’t!!” this did help me keep my priorities in order
Talents: Yes! I managed to do some sewing
Academics: I completed the first draft for the Christmas workshop, I read from my reading list plus I took on a lot of study on the topic of Dyspraxia – though it wasn’t on my goals for the week it became something urgent in my heart.
Having written out such goals for myself was very helpful. It kept me focused and allowed habits of the heart (that I didn’t like in my life) to be rubbed away and renewed with fresh vision. I will keep these goals for myself for another week or two – It takes at least that long to change our pattern of thinking and doing.
