Learning to prioritize

Priorities are something that I have always struggled with.

I have a tendency to prioritize certain things that shouldn’t be at the top of my list.

I get sucked into things that take up my time and have little to no benefit to my life.

I don’t always want what’s best for me.

I want what is easy and not always what will benefit me more in the long run.

I know that I need to prioritize my faith, my health, and school, but it’s easier said than done.

One truth that has been made evident to me lately is "We have time for what we make time for."

If I want to grow stronger in my faith, I need to make time for that.

I can’t expect growth without a little footwork. Prioritizing will be hard.

I will have to spend less time doing things I like in order to pursue things I love.

I know this task is easier said than done.

As with most things worth doing, it will require a conscience effort and strong will.

Priorities are important to a balanced life.

If your priorities are out of whack, your life will feel like it’s spiraling (I’m speaking from experience here).

I am going to take the next few days to evaluate my life, figure out what is important, what isn’t and where things need to fall on my list.

Prioritizing just helps life and adulthood feel a little less daunting.
