As I’m sitting here with my coffee I have greater respect for time. When I was younger I felt like I had all the time in the world to do whatever I wanted to do. But now that I’m older I realize how precious time is. I use to put off the things that I wanted to do because as I said I felt like I had time. But now I see that I need to get motivated and get things done. There are so many things that I have been wanting to do and I’m going to do this year. I’m not leaving anything to chance anymore. Time is way too precious to not take advantage of. I will call the people that I care about more often and tell them that I love them. I will send cards to the people that I care about and cant see right now. I never want to sit back and wish I would have done something and never did.
I tried to post something every day and I think that I’m going to step back from posting every day. I want to be able to take full advantage of my time. And I haven’t been doing much of that lately. So I think I’m going to start posting three times a week and see how that goes. I get so caught up in posting that I don’t leave myself much time to write, do research and read for my book reviews. I’m trying to use my time more wisely.
I’m grateful for this time to reflect and spend time with my family. One thing that I notice is that we are so busy doing this and doing that, that we don’t make time for each other as we should. So slowing down has made us appreciate the time that we have together. Not only that but it has helped us to open up about how we feel, what we can work on and just reflect on what is important. I think that when things go back to normal that we are not going to neglect ourselves or each other. We are going to be more intentional about spending time as a family. There are so many things that we can learn in this season, but to me, the most important is to love and spend time with people who matter the most to you. Make this season worth more than complaining. Let’s connect with the ones that we love.
