Warning....This Is My Brain on the Page

Thursday, February 2, 2012

Oh, how I wish I had a great story to tell you, but I really don't. Or maybe some great advice to give you.

I wish I could tell you that things are flowing along great in my life, and I have everything under control.

Well, don't we all wish that?

And maybe sometimes some of us do, but me, right now, not so much.

I have a lot on my plate and apparently I think adding more things to that plate is a great idea. I'm not to be trusted, people.

Scentsy is doing huge things! We have new products coming out in March plus a new brand in May. I'm very excited! We're in the process of putting together a "Director in Training" program, a "New Director Program," and I'm personally working on upping my communication with my customers. We always have training events in the works: an upcoming director training and our spring training event coming in April.

Oh, I'm supposed to be training for a half marathon....ask me how that's going? Well, let's put it this way, my idea of getting dressed today was taking a shower, putting on my running pants, a sports bra, t-shirt, and a ball cap. I did that because I had every intention of running. But, I did not. I will tomorrow though. Really.

I'm thriving off the relationships that have flourished in my life because of Scentsy. There are people all across the nation that I call my friends. It is the very best thing about my life. Absolutely. I feel like no one deserves to be able to love that many people and have them return the favor.

On top of all that, I'm still juggling this whole work from home, be a mom, be a wife, be a chef, be a taxi driver, and oh, we can't forget, be a nurse.

I'm just getting the hang of using the time that Luke is at Mother's Day Out three days a week to get all my work done, and now I'm praying about how I'll add another baby (or two) to the daily mix.

As I write all this, I know exactly what my life is screaming for.....routine and simplicity.

We've slipped out of routine. I'm sleeping until my kids wake me up everyday (yes, that makes me lazy!), and I'm not taking enough control of my schedule. I'm writing stuff down and checking it off when it gets done, but I'm not being intentional with my time.

We're too far from the church that we have come to call home. We spend too much time on the road between here and there, and that's driving both of us a little nuts, but the thought of moving and getting settled again makes me crazy. Yet, I know we're supposed to get closer. Closer to family, closer to our church, closer to the friends we have come to know as family.

But all that means change, and change is scary.

So what's the solution to my mess? I think I need to lay out what I'm working towards. I need some written goals. I know they make a difference. I'm even making my Scentsy directors send me theirs, but  have I done mine yet? Nope!

Well, I guess I'm adding something else to my To Do list for tomorrow.....wake up before my kids, and write out my goals.

What do you think? Good game plan?

What do you need in your life? Some written plans? More routine? Just curious......

.....day 173 of a year of writing.....
