People think I have a lot of time since I blog and photograph and sometimes craft.
I have the same amount of time as you do.
We generally think other people have time we don’t have.
Everyone has the same amount of time.
We think we don’t have enough time.
You have as much time as anyone else; you have enough time.
I have as much time as anyone else; I do have enough time.
It all boils down to priorities. What is important to us? What do we want to fill our hours doing?
I want to blog and photograph and sometimes craft after the chores and schooling and bill-paying and other drudgery (sometimes it is!) tasks are out of the way. Those things, the pursuing my interests things, charge me up and make me a happier (better) mama and wife. I’ve learned to do my daily chores/tasks quickly so I can get to at least one of my interests every day.
I’m teaching him to do his daily chores/tasks quickly, too, so he can get to his interests every day. This is one of those interests…
What do you want to do with your time? What do you do with your time?
A challenge: Today, yes, today, a busy day when you “don’t have time for this,” set a timer if you must and spend 15 minutes pursuing an interest. Learn about it on the Internet, draw it out, jot it down, or pull out those dusty old materials or tools and start doing it.
I think you’ll find, as I have, that you’ll feel you have more time, not less, when you spend time filling your spirit. The opposite is also true: I feel I have less time, not more, when I spend time on things that drain me.
