For some time I’ve felt like I’ve been on that merry go ‘ round of not hitting the mark. That not taking control. I’m sick and tired of feeling defeated daily.

I’ve read the books- and they have good points. But all the tips on how to organize your time or plan your day means nothing until you put into practice what you already know.

The early morning routine sounds good, but I don’t get to bed until late. Usually I’m the last to go to sleep. If I’m not too tired at that point, I’m reading in bed for a bit.

I’m an utter failure at meal planning. Let’s not even go there.

Now figure that the summer is blowing right by and school starts soon. I homeschool and work from home so I really really need to figure out a schedule of some sort for our home and my life.

You know that saying-  if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.  I believe it. I have lived it.

So the other day I started a new plan of attack. I’m trying again to set more order in our home and in my life. I want to feel like I have some control over it. Truth is, in reality, I do have control. I have control over taking control and over losing control.

And so  I took back control the other day, July 1st. The first of the month. I don’t remember planning it that way, but what a good way to see if I can take the month of July to begin new habits regarding how to structure my day, organize my time and all the things that fall under MY management in our home.

I guess we’ll see.

“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again:…” Proverbs 24:16
