August 2019: The Time Of Your Life

382

August is the month to evaluate the time of our life. 

Time is a big-deal.  Time measures what we do with the days of our life. Our culture tends to push us into the mindset of doing and achieving to be first and foremost.  But.  When all is said and done, time is a gift to be invested with love, grace, peace, and joy as our top priority.

In the process of doing too much at a fast pace, we’ve learned the best living comes from managing the day with intentionality and mindfulness of the gift.

Yes.

It takes time learn how to live.  Learning is a crucial value of living the best.

The Timely Grid Of Why

To know your why . . . is to know what you are to do . . .  with the gift of time.

Your “why” makes a difference in this world whether it appears to be a big deal or not. The thing is . . .  the power and meaning of your purpose . . . comes from God rather than social media or the current approval rating you’ve placed in your life.  Time management can be frustrating; however, it’s easier when time is navigated with the  “why” at the forefront. (Excerpt from the article, TableThink Coaching Advice: Watch The Clock And More.)

The grid is not based on doing more but on fulfillment each and every. single. day.

The voice in our head often speaks counter to the grid because of the nature of our culture.  Being stressed is more common than being blessed in the moment.  Taking time to re-evaluate and shift some things around can change the way the days are navigated.

The grid of why encompasses every piece of our life, including possessions.  It’s a timely subject.  In fact think on these words from an elderly friend:

It’s better to get rid of something now than to have someone go through your stuff after you leave this earth.  What we keep becomes part of our story.  Let’s be honest, our stuff leaves a message that’s not always complimentary. 

The person who sorts through our stuff after we die might not only  wonder why we kept something but will most likely tell others about it. 

You can’t do anything about what you leave behind after death; however,  you can take care of it now, unless, today is your day to leave the world. (Excerpt from the article, Organize One Thing One Day A Week.) 

The grid comes from values rather than rules.  Our life is not to be a carbon copy of one another but to be who we are to be as an individual created for more than can be imagined.

Take Some Time

  • Pray. Develop your why and what it means to living each day as a gift.
  • Pray. Learn how to manage your time to live the best.
  • Pray. Learn to say “yes” to only what’s yours to do.
  • Pray. Learn to enjoy each and every day.

TableThink’s Weekly Rhythm, Routine, And Rituals 

Sunday is reserved for soul work. There is value in taking time to be still to know God as well as coming together around the table and sharing life.

Soul work necessitates time alone as well as time with one another.

The thing is . . .  soul work is key to living best . . .  but often is last on the list.

Sunday Soul Work: 

Monday is our day to ramp up and renew an element of living.  We recommend this practice for individuals, couples, and families as well as organizations.  This best practice serves who we are and what we do.

“Monday” Articles:

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday follow the theme of the week and month: inspired-living.

Friday Feature focuses on Your Tribe,TableRead, and TableThink Podcast As the traditional workweek ends, it’s key to get ready to shift into the weekend with inspiration to live the best.

YOUR TRIBE

Anne Miller is TableThink’s columnist for Your Tribe.  Anne’s writing takes us home, reminding us  of what really matters.  She invites you to the TableThink tribe . . . and to know it’s . . . Your Tribe.

Anne invites us: “I hope you will feel inspired to connect, reconnect, or get to know someone in your community, realizing it is not about entertaining – holding the attention of – it is about “being” together, sharing life and relationship.”

TABLEREAD

Tiffany Carter is TableThink’s columnist for TableRead.  Tiffany’s passion and expertise in reading underlines the importance of reading to live our best.

Tiffany shares with us:  “As a mom and a teacher, I am passionate about books and love talking with others about what to read and traditions around reading. I love hearing and sharing about what and how families read. I also believe in the power of conversation around books and stories. Reading can be a powerful experience- especially when it is a shared experience with others.”

TABLETHINK PODCAST

We feature table conversations at our table.  We are excited for you to get to know the who takes a seat at our table and think on the interesting, inspiring, and informative discussions.  We grow when we think outside of our personal realm, broadening our perspective with inspiration.  We are working on our faith series and will be releasing a new look with our tablethink podcast. 

TableThink podcast can be found on our website as well as on itunes and podbean.

Saturday features the weekend slow-down. Taking a breath on the weekend, slowing down, and stepping back from the busyness of the week is smart living.   It takes effort and practice to make the weekend slow-down routine a part of life.  The thing is . . . as simple as it sounds . . . weekend slow-down serves our “why.”

One of the obstacles to the weekend slow-down is the lack of awareness of its overall healthy impact on every piece of life.

Thinking  through the things which lead to your best weekend slow-down generates motivation to make it happen. It’s helpful to use the specific elements to create a personalized weekend slow-down menu.

And . . . Think On This . . . devotional and podcast is released every. single. day. You can listen to Think On This on our website or on Alexaitunes, and podbean.

Begin your day with the Think On This podcast and devotion.
