Carmen. This is such a good post and I am really pondering what you shared. I am unable to spend my time currency in meaningful ways at the present...there are situations that are out of my control...however, the few hours that I can claim as my own I plan to OWN. God Bless.

This is exactly what I've been thinking about this year, so far! I work full time, and started law school full time in January. I also have a relationship, a house to take care of, and am sober - which for me requires meetings and time.
So I knew going into the year, that I would have to be really mindful of how I spent my time.
And it has forced me to really filter out anything that isn't dear to me. For example, I love reading and will not give that up. But Words with friends? I can give that up. I enjoy it, but it doesn't call to me like books do. I have a giant list of blogs I enjoy. But that's been narrowed to about 5 I check weekly too. And people that don't bring me joy or add anything to my life? Forget it. No time for them!
It's been a good exercise for me!

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
