I’ve never had the same worries Ms. B Jones lists in her diary. After all, I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t smoke ciggies, I’m not overweight, I don’t sleep around.
But I still relate to her. How is it that days melt into years and I’m
- Not exercising at all. I bought a Fitbit (no a MiBand I think) in the beginning of the year. But I need to be SO conscious of my completing those numbers otherwise it just doesn’t happen. I wouldn’t have thought this about myself – but apparently I’m a lazy slob.
- Not studying. I decided to put my free time to use and started on a course last year that I am still meandering through. By which of course I mean, I’m pretty much doing nothing.
- Not praying/studying the Word enough. I am, but again given the amount of ministry I do I really need to put in a lot more time on this area. God is still amazing. But I shouldn’t take Him for granted.
- Not painting. Ok granted this was started out as a pleasure but now I have the desire to improve, to “do something with it”. Am I too hard on myself? Or too easy (refer point 1)?
Anyway, since today is Saturday – I’ve decided every Saturday from now I’ll do a Bridget Jones-esq reporting in those 4 areas. Hopefully I’ll do a tad better than Ms. Jones before the year is out.
(Though I’m also happy to not and just meet Colin Firth instead. I know that’s not happening, but a girl can dream).
