You HAVE Enough Time in the Day
There are so many things I want to accomplish in just one day. It is hard to manage work, laundry, dinner, exercise, ball games, reading, and crocheting. These are just a few of the things I do on a daily basis. Most day, I do accomplish all the things on my “To Do List.”
How do I fit all the things I want to do in just one day? I give a certain amount of time to each item on my list. Obviously, work is a necessary eight hours. Immediately leaving work, I can usually find myself going to the YMCA and running/exercising of some sort for no more than one hour. When I get home from the YMCA, I put a load of laundry in the washer and start on dinner while that is going on. Once dinner has been consumed, I sit on the couch and multitask – watch television and crochet – until I get sleepy. Then, it’s upstairs to bed I go where I read for 15-30 minutes before I actually fall asleep. THIS ALL MAKES FOR A LONG DAY!
On game days, I do all of the above except dinner. I will usually grab a Quest bar and eat it at the game. Don’t tell anyone though!
This is a glimpse of my day – with no children or pets. I can only imagine how hectic our schedules will be once we add one (in the future – I AM NOT PREGNANT).
I always overhear women talking about how they don’t have time to do exercise, to clean, to put make up on, to whatever. The truth is, you DO have time. Beyoncé has the same 24 hours as you and look how famous and successful she has become!
It is all about how wisely you manage your time. You have 24 hours, how do you spend it?
What if we talked about time a different way?
What if one day you woke up and noticed you have $86,400.00 to spend in your bank account? You can spend it any way you want because you get $86,400.00 again TOMORROW! The catch? You have to spend it all before midnight.
That’s how time works. You wake up and you have it, you can’t keep it for the next day or give it to someone else to use.
Make sure you always make time to do the things you love.
