Time! Sweet Time! Time is the currency of our lives… moment by moment, day by day, week by week… and so it goes. How we live our time is how we live our lives.
Twenty-Four hours in a day. How many of them are you living deliberately? How does where you spend your time and focus your attention jive with what is most important to you?
Every now and then it may be wonderfully refreshing to stop and re-evaluate how you are spending your time and ask yourself some important questions… such as:
- How do I really want to live my life?
- How much of my time is devoted to what I really enjoy and what has meaning to me?
- What do I wish I had time to do, learn, or experience?
- What is most important to me at this stage of my life?
- What would I regret not doing or experiencing if I didn’t get to it?
- Who would I love to spend more quality time with?
- What do I truly desire?
- What do I need?
Clarity is the first step to arranging your life for more happiness and fulfillment. Being honest with yourself is key here. Think about all the things you would love to do, and all the things that delight you… past-times and activities. And all the people that you adore that it would be so wonderful to spend enjoyable time with.
Claiming back your time is the second step. You must take back your time to create the life you really want to live. If you don’t claim your time, no one will give it to you. It is yours. Your life. Your time.
I know… so many demands on your time… endless details, tasks and responsibilities. Our modern lives are so jam packed that life for most women has become a never ending to do list. It doesn’t have to be that way. If we really desire certain experiences to be a part of our lives… we have to plan and schedule them in first! We have to decide what is most important, what is essential, and what is not. Arranging time is really an art. Being true to ourselves about what we say yes to and what we say no to is incredibly important. What choices are we making with our time to create a fulfilling, satisfying and happy life?
Time is precious. It is vital to consciously choose how to spend it for a rich and enjoyable, happy life experience. Every minute of every day does not have to be regimented and productive. Think ease. Think delight. Think fun. What can you do to arrange your life and time to live a life you love? What can you let go of? Get out your day book and calendar and write in the things you desire most and that light you up! Make this a sacred agreement with yourself. It will nourish you heart and soul. This is your life. You deserve to be happy and live it the way your heart and soul yearns for it to be! Your Life. Your Time. Your Choice. Make it wonderful!
“The things that matter most should never be at the mercy of the
things that matter least” … Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
