Managing My Time

Lately I have been doing a piss poor job of managing my time. I find everything to do except what I NEED to do. I’ve been perusing the blogsphere like crazy. Been finding some very thought-provoking blogs that have really got me pondering a few things. So I’m grateful for those excursions.

Another thing that has been taking up my time is Youtube. I never knew so many people had makeup tutorials. That’s all I’ve been watching. And there aren’t that many different ways to put on makeup, but each video offers something different that I can appreciate.

Myspace isn’t as big an issue for me as it used to be. I am rarely on the site anymore. Guess I’ve kinda grown out of it. Facebook gets a little of my time, but not much these days either.

My latest addiction is BlackPeopleMeet. Yep, another dating site. Perusing through the thousands of ads is entertaining to me. I came across one ad where this dude had five kids and in his ‘about me’ section said he doesn’t like drama. Five kids and drama seem to go hand in hand. Or maybe that’s just my interpretation. I could be wrong.

Another thing that has taken up tooooooo much of my time is this pity party I throw for myself every day. As of yesterday, those days are officially over. I read an inspiring article about Tyler Perry in October’s issue of Ebony. He has motivated me to keep it moving. I realize that I can have plenty of control over what happens in my life. So…..

I have set up a schedule for my daily activities:

– I will get up at 6:45 AM Mon-Fri
– I will only visit 5 blogs a day
– I will run 2 miles 5 days a week
– I will spend at least 3 hours writing
– I will dedicate 30 minutes in quiet meditation and in prayer
– I will devote an hour to playing in makeup (guilty pleasure but also practicing for clients)
– I will get in bed by 10:00 PM Mon-Fri

This is just the beginning. Of course I will have some fun time in there somewhere, but these are the basics. These are all the things that I have neglected due to my lack of dedication. Hopefully this will show God that I am serious about the things I want to transpire in my life. I AM serious…seriously tired of living like this and realize that I hold me back. No longer will I allow myself to hold me captive.
