Priorities, Focus and Transform

Kathy-MeckleyThere are three words that keep reoccurring in my life recently.  They are priorities, focus, and transform.  Transform is what my business is all about since I have that as part of my business name. My goal is to enable clients to recognize what is contributing to their disorder so clients are able to transform their environment, change old habits and even lifestyles.  But the other two; I have had to meditate on why they keep appearing in reading material, ads, conversations, etc.  I believe everything happens for a reason.  If something keeps reappearing or reoccurring in my life, I figure that God is trying to get my attention about something I need to address in my life.

 Like many of you, I am involved in multiple projects.  I am re-examining what my priorities are and what my focus is.  What I am discovering is that even though I am an empty nester, I have allowed myself to say yes to too many things.  Now I have several deadlines to meet every week while other priorities like personal interests and exercise are neglected.

 Proverbs 31 is the story of a woman who does it all. When we read about her, we think she sets the standard.  Remember, what she accomplishes is over her lifetime not during a stage in her life, like being an empty nester.  She was able to accomplish so much, do it well and be honored because she set her priorities – God first, family second, career third. Then she stayed focused on the task organizing her day and her daily activities.

 For me, a new beginning this year began with re-evaluating my priorities and staying focused on what is truly important in my life. I am analyzing my habits and even my lifestyle. I still need to meet my obligations of what I have already committed to so my schedule needs to reflect this.  Set your priorities and stay focused. It’s doable.
