One day I decided to learn Portuguese. I remember that when I started, my Brazilian friends found it funny, lol. I would make mistakes that were hilarious and we would laugh a lot. But, I persevered, even though Portuguese is not an easy language to learn. In fact, I’m still learning today. Having learned Portuguese
There are many things going on in our lives every day. Who does not lead a life full of responsibilities nowadays? We wake up very early and go to bed very late. It’s a lot of work from beginning to end. With all of this, many times we do not notice the subtle work of
I loved to be “independent” and say that I wouldn’t need my parents to walk with me on the streets. I liked to walk ahead of them as if I already knew the way.
One day my parents taught me a lesson. As I was walking ahead of them, they decided to hide themselves in a place where I could not find them. After a few seconds, I glanced back and… “Hey! Where did they go?”
Last week I spoke about the need to learn how to prioritise our tasks in order to avoid being overwhelmed with things to do. And this root has ramifications, and this what I am going to talk about today.
Many people prioritise only one area of their lives, leaving the other areas uncared for. I’ve received comments from readers who said they spend so much time working that they don’t have time to do anything for God; others spend so much time in church that they don’t have time for their families, and the list goes on.
Since childhood, my mother liked to dress me up as if I were a doll. My hair was done well and I always wore lip gloss. These were details that could not be overlooked. I didn’t really care about it and I even got used to it, but I remember when it all became a nightmare!
When I was around seven or eight years old, there was a very strict coordinator in my school. She didn’t like to see anyone wearing something that, in her opinion, was not part of the uniform, and she decided that my lip gloss was unsuitable for school.
Hi everyone, I’m back!
I could barely wait to write this post and reveal the second root to all our busyness, LOL!
And here it is:
ROOT #2: You don’t know how to prioritise. That’s right. You have not yet developed the ability to determine the importance of your responsibilities or tasks and then deal with them accordingly.
You know the headache that will not go away and that unexpected hunger? The cause may simply be a lack of water. Approximately 60% of our body is made of it! Even a little dehydration can cause symptoms such as fatigue, constipation, mild loss of memory and difficulty in concentrating.
Drinking eight to ten glasses of water (you cannot exchange this for fizzy drinks!) per day, can do wonders for your health:
Yesterday my husband was talking about identifying and cutting off the bad roots and I realised one thing: there are bad roots to all our busyness. Have you ever thought about that?
It gave me a lot of food for thought. I could identify many roots but I just can’t talk about all of them in one post. So today I am going to talk about one of the roots that I identified.
When I was in primary school, the teacher decided to reward the students who had a good behaviour as a way of motivating them. In fact, each one of us would get a “star” on our homework notebooks according to our behaviour in class during that week. It worked like this: Red = bad behaviour
