Hello What Works

I’m saying hello to what works.

Goodbye old filing systems that other people created.

Hello simple notebook and pen. That works for me.

Goodbye complicated scheduling systems.

Hello old timey day planner. That works for me.

Goodbye 6am alarm clock.

Hello waking up when I feel rested. That works for me.

Goodbye morning devotionals.

Hello nighttime devotionals. God is in the evening, too.

Goodbye what doesn’t work.

Hello what does.

Have new beats been added to the rhythms of your life? Feeling like you’ve suddenly got two left feet? Might I suggest we stop looking at the dance of others and start choreographing our own? That works for me.

    Amen to that! This is a great post. I’m inspired to write a list like this.

      Is that true for us mamas or what, Kristel!?

    Love love love!

    I am a day planner and nighttime devotional person, too. Praise God for the diversity He created in personalities! 🙂

    I love going to bed at 9pm and getting up at 6am, that’s what works for me. Sometimes I just need to spend my time praying instead of reading my Bible, that’s what works for me.

    Great list.

    Love this! I always find that scheduling and to-do list apps on my phone end up taking me MORE time than just writing stuff down on paper. Same thing for a day planner on paper. It works for me!

    Again, we all have to find our own rhythm – so true!

      Thanks for the comment Beth Anne! I completely agree. Wasting time on time-saving devices doesn’t make sense at all!
