I feel fatigued lately, skin shows it... Last November was a challenge, Ecai was hospitalized for more than a week. December was hectic, aww that tight sched. January was a challenge, work related duties. And oh, here you are February, can you give me some love?
I have been totally feeling down and pessimistic that this morning I invoked the power of positive thinking. Ha! I resolve to lessen my worries by enjoying the ride a bit more. But how to completely do this, I have no idea.
No, I am not late... I am making a list of things I hope I can get done within this year.
2011 was very relaxed, or should I say... lacked focus, I do this and stop to do that...I see this and get that... all messed up and foolish. immature and lazy.
For 2012 I must...
1. USE MOBILE PHONE - I do not use or check my mobile all the time. I just pick it up to check an app and to take a pic. Yeah, I am very bad with replying to SMS and calls. It is usually dead and is at the bottom or nowhere in my bag.
2. BE ORGANIZED - Yup, this says it all, from my bag to kit to wallet and to cabinets. A place for everything and everything in its place. Tidy up at least bi-monthly.
3. EXECUTE AS PLANNED - Paging MR Husband.
4. BLOG OFTEN - Plan to do this, so I can always review goals. And share. And be reminded of the things that I should be thankful of.
Last week, I had a inkling to document how I spend my 24 hours. And I was dismayed with the result! On the average weekday I have: 10 hours for work, 2 hours travel, 2 hours for self hygiene and basic necessity like eating, 3 hours with daughter, 6 hours of sleep, 1 hour for hobbies or etc, 0 hours for husband, 0 hours for thinking and planning, 0 hours for house chores, 0 hours for relationship building... and oh my!
So last weekend, I had to try valuing my time and making the most of it. Woke up early and this is how I had spent 2 weekend days: 5 hours with ecai on a park, taking care of her, playing with her. and 2 hours buying what I need for a hobby, 2 hours personal hygiene and basic necessity, 3 hours ecau time, 4 hours hobby with tv time - that's for saturday. For Sunday, 1.5 hours prep for mass, 1.5 hours at mass, 3 hours with ecai, 4 hours on work-related task, 1 hour for preparing things, 2 hours traveling, 2 hours preparing to sleep! Wow, with all those I was able to spend time with ecai, finish work assignments, and have some time to do my cross stiching project! But the weekend was so tiring! That I still feel aches!
So in the end, from now on, since I value my self, I need all the rest I can get. Period.
