Make the time

I didn’t wear a watch for years.

As a young mom at home with my babies, our schedule was governed by the alarm clock (essential for me to have a cup of coffee and gather my motivation for the day), sunrise, breakfast, lunch, supper and bath time.

Looking back at those years, I am amazed at the energy I had.

Prioritizing became so important to me in those days. Do what matters.

Time marches on.

I think any person that has been a stay at home parent deserves a degree of some sort.

We also homeschooled.

Anyway.

I started watch wearing when I started working at a bank. It seemed like the thing to do, to seem more professional and with it.

Now I wear a Fitbit and it talks to me occasionally. I and my watch are one.

It seems we hurry everywhere these days.

With technology advancements, we have more time than ever. Yet less?

I try to take advantage of little moments here and there. Make the phone call. Write the blog. Pay a bill. Water the plants.

Cleaning my car, spring cleaning the house and working out are all little plates that spin about my head. Other necessary things to do. I applauded myself for getting two bags of items to a non-profit for donation. It is a start.

So we see life sometimes crowds out our dream planning, dream musing, or even our dream actualization.

Where we really do something we always wanted to do.

I feel like news reporting and creative writing are two of my dreams that have come true. It is funny that this road started with me telling my friends that yes, I was a customer service rep at a medical facility, and write on the side.

I wish I could have a nickel for every time someone said “writing, huh, don’t give up your day job,” obviously kidding but also slightly out of scepticism as to whether I would reach my dream.

Ha, ha!! Of course, we know the rest. Writing is my job, and more than that, a passion. It’s my way to make a difference in this world and learn more about other people and their stories, which inspire me.

Time. It is the little moments that count. Little motions. Little moves.

How many minutes did you spend today planning your dreams?

One thought on “Make the time

  1. A few minutes. I set some goals for the next 10 months (through March). Setting goals inspires me because I look ahead and see an improvement in my life, if I accomplish my goals.
