For a long time now I have looked at schedules (and more) as being rigid, inflexible, too structured, too restricting and too confining. I'm not sure when I started feeling like this or what even started it.
I thought/decided maybe I needed a different point of view and so I asked myself what happens if I "flip" that thought around? Then I had my revelation. I realized that having a good schedule could actually be very FREEING! Freedom from guilt, stress, shame, fear, worry, panic, doubt... A good schedule would bring security and control as well. I also realized if I don't take control over my life I will never have peace of mind or free time to do the things I want to do!
My new personal quotes to help me learn positive thinking!
-"A good schedule is the structure that allows me to take control of my time, days-ultimately my life!"
-"A schedule is the foundation upon which to build one's life."
So now I have a positive outlook on schedules and have done away with some stinkin' thinkin'.
