Always a little slow on the resolution uptake I've been thinking a lot more about goals lately, specifically about time. About the fact that we all have the same 24 hours in a day and am I really using the time I've been given wisely? No longer the frantic new mom with new baby just trying to keep my head above water, I find myself with a little more time than I used to. Sure I'm still plenty busy with staying on top of running our home, including dinner and chores, not to mention child-rearing, thrice-weekly therapy appointments, and PSP's school related responsibilities... I mean in those ways there's never enough time. But still, I must have time! It's there somewhere or those shows wouldn't get watched and FB would never be checked. I have nap time (knock on wood) and even the early evenings when my kiddos are in bed. I have always found pleasure in watching a favorite show or wasting time on-line as a good wind down tool but lately I keep going back to this thought: At the end of the year/decade/yourlife, do you want to have a lot of good Gilmore Girls episodes under your belt and clocked relaxation time, or do you want something more?
I'm thinking I want something more.
What about you--are you finding and using your time to have the life you really want? Do you feel like you're being deliberate about how you use your time or are you just trying to stay afloat? Is there something you're specifically tackling and feel as though you're using your time wisely? What's really holding you back--is it really a lack of time or is it excuses and fear? Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts...
