There is always so much going on... I am a full-time single parent, full-time employee, full-time business owner, full-time leader in my church, daughter, sister, friend, mentor, and so much more.... How do you focus through all of that?
Then we have all of this technology.. Smart phones, iPads, Laptops, Social Media, Reality television, and whatever else is out there. I mean really, how is anyone to focus with so much noise in the world? There is always a call, a text, or an email to attend to. I have a "to do list" for my "to do list". LOL!! I find myself having to set appointments and meetings in several different locations (Planner, Calendar, and Task Manager on my Smart Phone)...
By the end of the night I am wiped out.. I believe my eating habits have a lot to do with my lack of focus too. Like right now, I am soooo sleepy, and I think it was because of that Subway sandwich I ate a few hours ago that is still sitting on my belly. My belly is so full, and my shoulders hurt, and now I feel a little heartburn rising. Just great! Not to mention, that while I am sitting her doing this blog, I am in the middle of text messaging 4 of my friends, and I have laundry to do. Man, I need a personal assistant. Times like this I wish I was married.. No, because than that would just be another thing to add to my list of things to focus on.. Ugh!
So, what is the cure to this Focus issue? Does anyone have any suggestions? Omgosh! I just realized I left out being a full-time daughter to the King! I'm sorry Daddy, that should have been first on my list. You see, someone else would have just went back and added that to the top of this page. But I am going to keep it real! I am so busy, that I don't spend time with God as much as I would like, and as much as I know He would like me to.
Maybe, just maybe that is the answer to this Focus thing... Seek ye first, the Kingdom of God, and all these things will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). I bet that is the missing link. I need to put Him above all the other things, and He will help me to focus on the things I need to focus on. And the Focus issue will no longer be an issue because I will be doing it in His strength, not my own! Praise God for that... Okay, I'm going to sleep now... I'll take care of everything else tomorrow.
Be Good.. Live Life.. And Above all else... Be Unusual!
