Y’all. I have learned something about myself since October 2015. I need routine. I need a schedule. I like having to be somewhere at a certain time and having deadlines. Most days recently I’ve felt like I am upside down, drowning in a puddle of uncertainty, and not knowing what to do next.
I’ve learned something else as well. Y’all, I am LAZY. I don’t do well without routine or a schedule because I am lazy. I’ve always known I was a procrastinator (you can ask my college roommates about that ?), but I never realized my procrastination stemmed from laziness. I may have a million things to do, but if I don’t have structure I won’t get it done until the last possible minute causing so much stress.
So, now that I’ve realized some of my flaws, I’m doing something about it. Yes, I could just try and make a better schedule for myself (I work from home most days for those that don’t know) and be a better motivator, but like I said above – I’m lazy. So that isn’t happening.
Y’all. I got a new job, and I’m ecstatic about it. I miss 9-5 so much. I know, I am absolutely insane. Working from home is the dream. Well, it just isn’t my dream. I don’t like it one bit. Maybe if I had kids or if my dog was super playful (that dang Taco does NOT like to cuddle with me and he prefers his cousin Nugget over me any day) I would be more inclined to love working from home. But, alas it just isn’t for me. Plus, you know, I’m lazy. So, it just works better for me being in an office setting daily so I don’t feel the need to procrastinate.
I’m also switching jobs to glorify God. Yes, you read that right, I’m getting a 9-5 to bring God glory. Hear me out before you think I’m too crazy (I know you are already rolling yours eyes at my not wanting to work from home nonsense ?), the bible says to do everything as you would for the Lord (Colossians 3:23). I’m definitely not doing that right now. Don’t get me wrong, I am doing my work and getting things done, I’m just not happy about it. I’m not thinking about doing it for God, to honor Him and be a witness for Him, I’m just getting by doing my work and not truly thinking of God in it all. That’s wrong. I don’t want to go against the bible just because on the days I work at home I get to wear yoga pants. It’s not worth it to me to stand before God on judgment day saying, “Yes, God. I could have done more for you in my work, but I didn’t. I saw my human flaws and didn’t do anything about it.” That’s not how I want that situation to go down, and I feel like God isn’t going to let it go down like that either. So, I start working at my new 9-5 (??) soon, and I can’t wait!
Also, I’m totes hoping this new adventure with routine and schedule means I’ll build in time to blog on the regular, woohoo!
