saidahHow long have you been following my blog? Has it been since 2008 when I first launched it or have you recently stumbled upon it? If you’ve been around since the early days, you’ve come a long way with me and hopefully, something in your life has been made a little bit better because of the stuff I’ve written over the years.

I know my life has changed so much from when I first launched this blog. The life I was working toward, praying for and prophesying is the life I am living today. When I first started this blog, God began giving me glimpses of the life He wanted for me, it was almost too hard to believe it.

Guide to Creating Your Balanced Daily Plan

My Guide to Creating Your Balanced Daily Plan is part of a 3-part series to help you organize your day. I will teach you how to create a plan of devoting your time to the things that make you a happier women. The tips will help you being the process of mapping out days that will cultivate peace and joy in your life.Guide to Creating Your Balanced Daily Plan

Finding a specific strategy for balancing your time each day is super essential to every Proverbs 31 woman. We are easily helpers and can get caught up in doing things all day to help and wind up burned out.

Our innate nature to help is a wonderful gift from God but do you know that the enemy wants to pervert those gifts? If we are overwhelmed, upset, short tempered and not productive, we aren’t using our gift for the Lord. In fact, we’ve allowed the enemy to have a stronghold over our time, talents and possible our mind.

For a while now I’ve written about regaining peace in our lives because a lack of peace is a sign of fear. We are not designed to operate in fear, panic, anger, frustration and joylessness. In fact, the very opposite it true. Our days are (or at least should be) ordered by the Lord and if so, we should feel balanced and edited about it.

So how do we create a balanced daily strategy for our time and talents?

I’ve been writing and sharing my schedules with you since 2008, so you’ve see me go from managing my home with toddlers, to managing my home and homeschooling to managing my home, homeschooling and running a business, to managing my home and business.

Throughout these phases I’ve had to restructure my day to fit my current lifestyle. When it comes to creating a balanced daily strategy you must be flexible.

Early on I hated change. I love consistency and found myself irritated if things didn’t “go as planned”. I had to learn that my plans are subject to failure because life changes and from day to day it changes at a rapid pace. Being flexible with change is key to remaining balance. In fact, expecting things to change helps you better prepare for the possibility.

Proverbs Wife Tip #1 – Be Flexible

The next thing you need is to audit your life and see how you’re spending your days. Write down everything you do in a day for a week and evaluate if those things bring you joy and get you closer to the ultimate vision God has for your life.

Begin asking yourself these questions as you look over your list.

1. Is what you’re doing getting you closer to your family mission statement?

2. Is what you’re doing getting your closer to your financial goals?

3. Is what your doing getting you closer to the kind of relationships you want to have?

4. Is what you’re doing getting you closer to the home environment you desire?

Auditing how we spend our days and what we apply our efforts to is a Biblical principle found in Psalms 90:12 and Psalm 37:23. It is our duty to evaluate what we are doing with these lives God has given us and use them in a way that brings Him glory. When we do that it moves us closer to creating an internal peace and balance that can’t be disrupted by external situations.

Proverbs Wife Tip #2 – Audit Your Life

Now that you have an idea of how you spend your time I want to you to think about what activities are essential and most important to your growth in the following areas. Take each of your tasks and group the under on of the follow headings.

1.  Spirit

2. Body

3. Mind

4. Home

5. Family

6. Business/Work

Once you have everything written down it’s time to audit again. The goal this time is to eliminate busy work and things that don’t make you a better you.

So here what my list looks like.

Spirit: Bible reading, devotions, prayers

Body: meals, exercise, beauty/appearance, hygiene, water intake

Family: husband, kids

Home: meals, home maintenance, home improvement projects,

Mind: spanish lessons, reading, podcasts, blogging, vlogging

Business: blogging, vlogging, emails, pitching, social media content, traffic growth, content syndication, product development, newsletter, engagement/comments, accounting

Now that you have a better view of how you spend your time each day you’ll want to begin managing it better.

4 Ways to Discuss a Hot Topic Without Arguing

4 Ways to Discuss a Hot Topic Without ArguingThere is no magic pill we can take to ensure everything goes right in our day. In fact, things will probably go wrong just because we want them to go right. We can’t control every part of our day, but what we can control is us.

We get to decide how we respond to every situation that comes our way and God has equipped us with everything we need to handle those situations.

Just this morning I struggled with telling my husband something I wanted to do. I knew he wouldn’t agree with it so I avoided bringing it up. I didn’t want him to be frustrated and I didn’t want to become frustrated, but it was time to get it out in the open.

Before brining up the conversation I knew had the potential of escalating I declared a few things.
