Work, Life Balance tips

After 2 months of being married, the one thing that i have not had enough of is 'TIME. I find myself still having A LOT to do even after the day is over. 
Being a young married woman with dreams, goals and ambition and planning to start a family, it seems impossible to achieve all this and still be sane...Talk about multitasking on overdrive. 

Balancing your personal life with work is not the easiest thing to do and it requires more than just 'Luck and Strength' we need HELP, lots of it.

So If you're finding it more challenging than ever to juggle the demands of your job and the rest of your life, you're not alone.

This brings me to tip number 1

* Focus your time on the things you can control: schedule time to spend with your family and friends. this will help you recharge- go on a date with your spouse or just a simple dinner with friends will boost your energy and help clear up your head.

Tip Number 2

* Don't waste your time on people/things that add no value to you or your work, these are energy sappers and will leave you gasping for air. focus more on productivity, you will realize that you feel better when you've achieved something you have been working on.

Tip Number 3
* Rethink your errands ( To- do list): I have a book where i write down the things i need to do in order of priority, being someone that loves to get things done quickly and on time, i tend to wear my self out because i'm trying to get everything done. Now i know that  if it can wait- let it wait. Do not try to do everything, you will push yourself to a breaking point.
Do tasks that a mostly time bound and delegate the rest.

Tip Number 4

* Keep Moving: it is very difficult to set aside time to do any kind of exercise when you have a very tight schedule. I try to workout at least 2 - 3 times a week ( i wake up early for a quick cardio). This ultimately helps me stay alert and boosts my energy level.

Tip Number 5

Take time out to relax. sounds impossible when you have so much to do, but a little relaxation goes a long way. this will help clear your mind. Do the thinks you enjoy, like listening to music, take a long bath etc

Thy Will be done

"Thy Will be done ", These words have become so real to me.
For the first 20+ years of my life, I never really gave my life any serious thought ( the irresponsibility of ignorance), I lived with such careless abandon, stumbled through bad decisions and failed attempts at figuring out what my life was all about, I walked through days  unsure of what I was going to do with my life most of the time.
I sensed that I had something of value, however I was unsure of what it was and how to access it. I remember crying profusely wondering why things were not lining up for me the way I "thought" they should.  I was alive but was not living. I fell into the routine of life as expected - go to school, get a degree, get a job, settle down, grow old, die. But somewhere in this lineup I knew there were some items missing ,which was "become who God created you to be","impact lives", "be great".

Overcoming the fight in your HEAD

This post may not resonate with everyone, though I pray it speaks to as many people that read it. I understand that we all have different understandings and believe systems. But! I believe this cuts across all that as this is a common denominator in our lives. This post may be 'deep' for some, and enlightening for others if you fall in the bracket of the former, it is my prayer that God will give you understanding in your heart as you read.

We are under ATTACK. No matter how blessed and successful we are, we are being attacked or about to be attacked.We are in a HEAD fight with the devil, We must attack him with what we "KNOW" . Your head will lead you where your heart will not take you. Your head is the center of your existence, how you relate to people around you and things in your life, so it is very important to protect your head.
 The enemy is fighting you over the control of your mind (life), Everything that he does, every form of attack is a battle for contro…
