“Time is at once the most valuable and the most perishable of all our possessions.” ~John Randolph
“This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it.” ~Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Don’t wait. The time will never be just right.” ~Napolean Hill
Since coming back from the Christmas break, where I took a longer-than-usual-amount-of-time away, my schedule has become a real bear. It is like karma is paying me back for still having sun tan lines. I had too much fun, therefore I must pay. At least that is the way it feels, just a bit.
I shouldn’t complain. In the scope of things, having a busy life, full of rewarding experiences and fabulous relationships is a gift. But, I do need, (everyone probably does), some personal time. A few moments in each day that are for me only.
About a month ago, I started a book that is divided into a dozen chapters. A new daily action is recommended to be added at the end of each week, (time needed to absorb the chapter and teachings). By now, I should be on chapter 4 and finished my 4th new daily action. I have not passed #1 yet. I just can’t seem to devote 15 minutes each morning when I wake up, to myself. How sad is that? But, I keep trying, some days are better than others.
I was recently asked if I had started working out? I must be looking a little less heavy than normal. I replied, “no – that is stress weight loss. I am still thinking about how to add exercise into my life.” Can you imagine? I am not a Nike commercial, (Just do it), that’s for sure.
And so I have to commit. To myself. The time to become better, be inspired. The time to keep my body strong.
