If you are to meet others and end up being the last to show up, does it make you feel bad for being late? It seems like I am always the last one to arrive. I don’t do it intentionally, but that’s neither here nor there. It is a problem that I need to work on, and with God’s help I can do better.
I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. – Maya Angelou
I never want anyone to feel like they are not important to me. If I leave people waiting, it’s possible that they may feel like their company is not as important to me as something else. That is certainly not the case. I just have a problem with time management. Here are some things I’m going to do to make my routine as smooth as silk as I’m getting ready to leave the house:
- I will lay all my clothing out the night before. That way I can change purses if I need to and make decisions about what jewelry to wear.
- It takes time to find the right lipstick to wear with the clothes you are wearing. I’m going to start picking out make-up the night before.
- Getting between 6-8 hours of sleep the night before makes all the difference. If I’m suffering with symptoms of RA, I keep a PM medication on hand.
- If I have to meet people early in the day, I’ll start taking a shower the night before. That will shave a little time off my routine.
- I will start leaving phone numbers by the phone. If I realize that I won’t be there on time, having the number to call handy right away means I won’t have to spend several minutes trying to look the phone number up.

Respecting others and their time are a priority for me in 2016. With God’s help and guidance, I can be a better friend, associate and patron. 🙂
