My Uncoordinated Life

I am very uncoordinated in general. I trip, fall, drop things, lose track of what I'm talking about, and am just all around uncoordinated in everything it seems. Recently, I have felt that I am uncoordinated in my daily life as well. It's like I am not accomplishing anything at all. I am getting rather sick of it. It seems ridiculous that I can't finish a non fiction book, get a work out schedule, get registered for classes, or any of the other million little things. If you haven't already figured it out I am a procrastinator. And lately it SUCKS!!! I mean it has never completely helped me but it seems to have gotten worse.

I want to and I am going to start changing that. seems rather daunting. I am going to work out 2-3 times a week at least. My sister is going to help keep me accountable because she is going to work out with me. I am going to finish the 3 devotional books I have started in the past year. (one at a time) I am going to register for classes for the next semester and I start that process tomorrow. I am going to coordinate my life! I would say I hope but that is not being positive. I'm thinking baby steps will help. I do have small motivations for things as well but I don't feel like getting into those. I will let you know when I actually accomplish something!!!

Wisdom from a 4 year old

My last semester at college in California I was blessed to be able to spend basically everyday off campus in a real home with an amazing woman and her wonderful children. She shared a prayer from her 4 year old and it was exactly what I needed for today, after this week, and preparing for next week. He thanked God for the hurts. He prayed for church, and his family, then thanked God for his friend having a cut on his head, his dad being away, and his little brother being sick. He doesn't realize what he is saying but he still got it right. God is in control no matter how often we as adults forget it. Why not thank him for what he is doing in our life even if it may hurt. It truly is amazing though how the wisest things come from children. So before you finish your week or day thank God for what you aren't thankful for.
