If you look closely, you can see that I'm holding time in my hand and that how I use my time is a reflection of me.
I used to be the type of person who would ask the question, "Where does all my time go?" It just seemed to slip away and I didn't have any control over how I spent it.
And then I got a grip on myself and starting thinking about it. I have 24 hours in my day. I sleep about 7.5 hours and I work about 11 hours a day between my school counseling job and working on my side business.
So that means I still have 5.5 hours left in my day. I dictate how those hours are spent. Yes, I realize that we have family responsibilities and chores but we also waste a lot of time. That's what I discovered anyway, and then I started to do something about it:
1. I began limiting how much time I watch TV.
2. All electronics power down by 9:00 p.m.
3. I do different chores each night so that I'm done in 30 minutes.
4. I limit my time on social media, email, texting, etc.
Now that I've started doing just those four things on my list, I've discovered that I have more time to do the things I want to do. I've been able to hang out with my husband more, read more, write more, and get more exercise. I really do feel like I'm holding time in my hand and it's starting to accurately reflect me.
I'm a lover of life, an eternal optimist, and I have an intense desire to add value through simple living and positive vibes.
