Yes, things are different. And if we’re honest we have (or can now) identify many things that cluttered our calendars. We likely thought many of those things “we just had to do” before are now not as necessary as we might’ve thought. Some were. But many weren’t.
Now that life has slowed & in many cases has been stripped to the basics, we’ve uncovered the most valuable commodity that we are graced with & each get the same amount of daily... TIME. We’ve complained often about not having enough time and oddly enough many are complaining about the time on their hands now￼￼, failing to recognize the gift in this moment.
Here are a couple truths about TIME:
- You need it.
- It never looks back, it always keeps moving forward.
- You can’t control it, you just get to use it.
- You get the same amount as everyone else, so it distributed fairly.
- It’s more valuable than money bc you can’t grow it or earn it - you only get to spend it.
- And once you spend it, you can’t get it back or do that spent time over.
How you spend your time is so critically important to everything about you. Successful people have learned the value of time and they don’t waste it. Instead they are intentional, protective and treat it as more valuable than money. With all we’re experiencing in this season, you likely have been given clearer sight to the time you are graced daily to receive. The worst thing you can do is come out of this season having wasted it with worry. Successful people are planning their next moves and using time wisely.
What are you doing with the time on your hands?
Take Care of You.
