The last years of my life have been hectic. Having two kids under the age of three, moving and remodeling our home twice, and starting new work projects have had an impact on my spare time. I realized at one point this winter that I never sat down and relaxed, I was always doing something. Even during meals I would multitask and try to finish of something i though was really important. I decided this carousel had to stop. If you’re constantly busy accomplishing something or going somewhere what good does your nice house or fancy car do you?? (ok my car isn’t that fancy, it’s a Volvo V70- very family oriented). What good does it do to work your ass off to earn more money so you can go out and by more things?? The more things I have, the more time I need in order to tidy the house. The more clothes I have the more there is to wash, fold and put away. I do not want things to own me. I want to own my own life. And I want time to live it.
People always say that there is not enough time. I think it is a matter of being realistic. The more you try to fill your life with, the less time you will have. It is a simple as that. I want to fill my life with time to enjoy it, and I’m going to make sure it is on the top of my list:-)
