Six months ago, I was overwhelmed, overworked and over-committed. I was exhausted, I was stressed, and my family, marriage, health and home were suffering.
I’d been praying about hiring an assistant and God just kept bringing me back to Amy. While she’d never worked as a virtual assistant before, she had the skills and the heart I was looking for. So I offered her the job, she accepted and my life is forever changed.
Not only has Amy taken over a lot of the load of the behind-the-scenes responsibilities which come along with running a blog with a lot of readers, but Amy has helped me get my personal life back in order. And this has brought incredible peace back into our home and family.
I waited four months after implementing these life-changing things before sharing them with you, because I wanted to make sure they were lasting changes, not just something I started and raved about on my blog and then ended up falling off the bandwagon after two weeks.
The changes and calm have stayed… for four whole month!
Just a few of the changes which have come as a result of implementing the things Amy shares in her book:
::I’m spending much less time online.
::I’m spending more time in God’s Word and prayer.
::I’m spending a lot more time loving and enjoying my husband and children at a leisurely pace.
::We’re more involved in our church and community.
::I’ve been reading a book every other week or so.
::I’m exercising for at least 45 minutes to an hour almost every day.
::We’re eating more healthfully.
::We’re reading and praying together as a family on a very regular basis.
::We’re delighting in learning together and exploring more new places, people and concepts in our homeschooling.
::I’m actually keeping up with the laundry and cleaning — most days!
::And believe it or not, I’m getting around 7-8 hours of sleep almost every night.
Now, please don’t get any impression that we’ve got all our ducks in alphabetized rows around here. I’ll be sharing my journey towards becoming a better manager of time beginning on Friday of this week and I have a feeling I’m going to disappoint every one of you because you’re going to learn once and for all that I am not superwoman. I’m actually doing a lot less, so that I can focus on what really matters.
I’ll be fleshing out a lot of the things Amy shares in her book and how we’ve applied the principles in our own lives. But I want to go ahead and encourage you to buy a copy of Amy’s brand-new ebook, Tell Your Time: How to Manage Your Schedule So You Can Live Fulfilled.
