a thanksgiving to do list

it's thanksgiving week! poor thanksgiving gets more and more overlooked, and this year, i'm going to try my hardest to give thanksgiving every credit it deserves. i'm so incredibly blessed, yet i always seem to find something to complain about. 

my thanksgiving to do list:

1. watch a Charlie Brown Thanksgiving.  Yay!!! :)
2. wake up in time to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade!
3. spend an incredible amount of time with my family, and give them hundreds of hugs!
4. eat and eat and eat!
5. try a few new foods,,,,,,,,,,maybe.
6. black friday shopping! (i know,,,,,but it's a tradition!)
7. start reading through the chronicles of narnia series
8. bake a few things from my "recipies to make" pile, including pumpkin dump cake, red velvet swirl brownies, and maybe even chocolate gingerbread cookies!
9. Turkey Trot Amarillo style!
10. take lots and lots of pictures!
11. be thankful! :)

what's on your thanksgiving to do list?

Tuesday, November 9

a time for everything,,,,,,,

i'm feeling inspired,
i want to paint,
and craft,
and scrap,
and edit photos,
and decorate my apartment,
and improve my design skills,
and learn to cook more things,
and train,
and travel,
but i don't have enough time.

i'm sure i would have more time if i would prioritize a tad bit more efficiently.  i make my to-do list every day, but sometimes i even find myself working on projects in the midst of making my list, and therefore i end up at the end of the day with a remaining list of to-dos that should have been done, and a pile of accomplished tasks that could have been put off.  i just have so many things i want to do in my life.

luckily, i'm only 21 years old.
and i've got an entire life ahead of me.
how exciting is that!?
and i keep reminding myself that God gave me the desire to pursue my passions, and therefore i shouldn't feel like i have to push them aside.
i just need more time.
and more focus.

"for everything there is a season, 
and a time for every activity under heaven."

i can do anything good!!

for those day's when you feel like you can't get out of bed, ya know, like most mondays, i recommend a little daily affirmation:

"Cast all your cares upon him, because he cares for you." 1 peter 5:7
