How I spend my time

I was thinking today about my life and how I spend my time. 

When my schedule is NOT full and I have openings on my calendar I feel like there is so much more I want to do with my life. I feel like I'm missing out on accomplishing everything I want to do. Like unused valuable time is just passing away. 

When my schedule IS full and I'm running from one thing to the next I feel like there are so many other things I want to do with my time. I feel like my hours, days, months are disappearing at an unbelievably rapid speed. 

I guess my point is no matter how I spend my time I always second guess it. I always have a gut feeling that there is something more, something bigger, something much more important. What is it that I am supposed to be doing with this life God gifted me?!

This entire thought process exhausts my husband, he tells me I just can't sit still and relax. If you know me even a little you have surely heard me say how amazing my husband is, but oh how we are wired so differently! He recharges by serious down time, doing nothing. I recharge by people who inspire me, visiting a place I've never been, or learning something new. 

I suppose tomorrow I will continue thinking about my life and how I spend my time. I would love any insight on the matter.

Kitchen Cabinet redo

I am finally done with my kitchen cabinets! I love the end result but have yet to determine a wall paint color. Suggestions? I am eventually going to have the floors redone but there are many projects ahead of them.

Happy New Year!

2015 is going to be a great year! 

Why not be optimistic on the first day of the year?!

Some of my goals this year...

Spiritual growth- read the bible more and reflect more on life purpose.

Relationships- show love and compassion, listen more, judge less. 

Fitness- work out at the very least 20 minutes EVERY single day. 

Volunteer- get to know the struggling families at a greater level.

Work- create an environment where people will enjoy coming to work. 

Simplify- Donate stuff, commit to less. 

Budget- don't spend money on unnecessary things. Save more. 

BALANCE WILL DETERMINE MY SUCCESS.  And yes, these a vague but I will make smaller weekly goals to help me reach these larger goals.
