When we are young time moved so slowly. We counted the minutes until the school day would be over, then prayed for the school year to end and summer to arrive. As we get older every once in a while we look at the calendar and realize that, "it’s already almost the middle of April," and we wonder, where did the time go? Yet most of us still wish for the work week to be over so that we can have “our weekend” and before you know it, it’s Monday and we are wishing the next week away.
When I had been unemployed my days were usually longer, I was much better rested, and I was always waiting. Waiting for the next interview, or the next time I posted my blog. Waiting for my husband to come home, or for the weekend when we could finally do something together. Now with two jobs, a husband that travels and a lease that is about to expire on our apartment, I don’t have time to wait and my days are becoming shorter even if the sun is staying up later.
It was this morning that I realized, it’s time to stop procrastinating. For 4 months I’ve said, “I’m going to start my new blog,” and four months of me saying, “I’m too busy there is no time.” Well, sure there is time, the time I reserve for sleeping. So I decided it’s time to wake up earlier. If that’s the time I have available, then why waste it? Because I’m tired and need to rest you say?! No, I was tired before, so what if I lose 15 more minutes of sleep. How about an hour…lets not push it.
I try to live by the philosophy, if today were my last day, would I be happy that this is what I did. Every day that I wrote, I always felt excited and encouraged. I try to make sure that I’m happy with what I accomplished, but when you are busy trying to live life, you can’t be happy with every minute you spend of your day all of the time. But today, today I can be happy with how I spent my day, because today was the day I decided it was time to blog again. Today was the day that I decided to say, I’m taking advantage of what time I have, I’m “making time” and so should you.
