You Always Have Time….. – Peggy W Barnes

You Always Have Time…..

When we look at our daily life. the quote, in the photo above, says a lot and can strike a chord in many of us, 

Can you list the things that you say you don’t have time to do?  

Eating Right
Spending time with our friends, family or spouse
Getting organized

I am not judging or condemning anyone because I am just as guilty.  To find time, for the most important “things” in our life, we have to look honestly at our schedule and see what things we are saying YES to that is causing us to say NO to something else.  The things we are saying YES to may be very noble things, may be good causes, and you may feel like the whole thing will fall apart if you are not a part of it.  However, just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should be.  

What I do know about this concept is:  if your health fails – from lack of exercising or not eating right – all of a sudden you find time to deal with it.    If your relationships fail – from lack of attention – all of a sudden you find time for the people in your life.  If crisis mode hits – from lack of organization – all of a sudden you find time to try and get organized.  

What don’t you have time for that you know is important?  Are you able to take some hard looks at your schedule and make some hard choices?  If not, eventually, life will do it for you.
