How to get the Most out of Your Day (3) From Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power

Welcome to Coffee Hour @ Chicklit Power and thanks for coming by and joining me for a little break. This is our third coffee hour in this sort of interactive series about how to get the most out of your day, and I so hope you are enjoying it. 🙂 Grab your coffee and come on in.

I’m wondering how it is that you can tell when you’re not managing your time wisely or in the best way. I shared just a few, but let me rewind and remind.

The first one I talked about was getting a manicure. I so love talking like our nail ladies, but let me clarify I in no way do that to belittle them. It’s just the way that they say things is funny to us as Americans. My nail lady is very, very special in my heart and in fact, we call each other sisters because we pray for each other and encourage each other. I truly love her and her family! Anyway, the point I was trying to make with the manicure issue is if we have the money to pay for the manicure, why not enjoy it? And I know I’m not just telling on myself; I see it every time I go to get a manicure, women in such a hurry and not really enjoying the pampering!

Another “you know” I talked about is when someone much younger than you splashes perspective like a jug of cold water in your face and serves you a piece of humble pie with her observations turned into wisdom! And again, don’t get me wrong; I’m not saying the older shouldn’t learn from the younger, not at all. In fact, isn’t it so profound when you’re in the midst of your craziness, running around like a chicken with no head, and out of the mouth of babes comes some words of wisdom? Those times work like an unexpected red light on a freeway!

Everyone laughed when I shared the “you know” about my husband getting on the ground and acting like one of our four-legged kids so he could have some attention, too. It was funny, and yet, I almost cry every time I think about it. Why? Because it really means I’m moving too fast for him; that he’s not getting the time or attention from me that he deserves. Who in your house does this or has this applied to?

Many of us can relate to just being so busy that we make silly mistakes, like going out with your shirt inside out! What’s something silly you’ve done because time has gotten away from you?

Speaking of time, what about those time stealers that can really tip the scale and knock you out of balance? These things that can be tools in our life become weapons when we spend too much time with them, for example, E-mail, Facebook, computer games, to name just a few. You might be asking, “How much time is too much time?” A simple answer to that question would be this: If you’re spending more time on either one of these than you do with Him, that’s too much time.

I’ll let you go, but please join me on Blog Talk Radio today at 1:00 Pacific time in our Destination? Joyful! ™ show where we are unpacking the piece of junk of an eating disorder!

Have a heart-squeezing weekend. 🙂

    Wonderful report,Maybe I will sign up to your rss.

  2. A lot of of what you claim happens to be astonishingly legitimate and that makes me wonder why I had not looked at this in this light previously. Your article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this specific subject matter goes. Nevertheless at this time there is actually 1 factor I am not too comfy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the core idea of the position, let me see just what all the rest of the readers have to say.Very well done.

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important and all. Nevertheless think about if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its field. Fantastic blog!

    very exciting. However, I appologize, but I can not subscribe to your whole idea, all be it exhilarating none the less. It appears to me that your comments are actually not entirely justified and in actuality you are yourself not even totally confident of the point. In any event I did appreciate looking at it.
