Making My Own Destiny

I've always been the type of person that sort of sat back and let life happen. I always looked at people that went after what they wanted with admiration because I just never did that for myself.  I'm not the most assertive person and I hate to rock the boat or upset anyone.  I am a total people pleaser, even if it takes away from doing something for myself. 

I'm starting to realize that I can't do that anymore.  I have goals, I have dreams and I can't just wait for good fortune to come my way.  I have to go for it and work hard to achieve it. 

I've been working hard lately on things for others and I've gotten off track of what I need to do for myself so I am trying to manage my time better, fit the things I want to do, in where I can and make time for family.  It isn't always easy but nothing worth having is ever easy, at least that's how the saying goes. 

Spring is right around the corner and with that comes the busiest season of our family life.  The kids are all in different sports, which means a ton of running around and being at several places, several days a week.  I also have lots going on with my running, fitness and trying to prepare for our vacation.

I wish there were more hours in a day or more days in a week for me to get more done.  I've started to write out my goals in detail and write down the necessary steps to reach those goals. I read that in a personal development book on time management.  It really does make sense. 

I need to  change, er, tweak how I run my life. Marriage and family will always come first, then work and then all the mundane things that we have to do. For me, marriage and family are a huge task and work gets put in there because if I work hard to achieve the goals I have, I will be able to spend more time with my family and not work outside of home too much.
