"Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend." – Theophrastus.
Brief hiatus while I got my life together. Work’s ramping up, I went to Montana to visit my boyfriend, took on a nonprofit project, and another leadership role with the professional organization that I belong too.
Oh, AND I decided it was time to get a new kitten! The pain of losing the first, Frisco, was heartbreaking, but as with any thing in life…the best thing you can do is to KEEP loving, keep sharing your heart, and keep being vulnerable. It’s scary, but it’s worth it in the end.
Baby Breckenridge has moved in with me, and she’s here to stay. I stuck with the Colorado mountain town names to pay tribute to Frisco. She goes by Breck for short, and she’s an absolute delight.
But anyways—this blog is about the concept of time. As an adult, I’ve noticed that time simultaneously moves incredibly slow and yet increasingly fast. Hours fly by, weeks turn into months, and it’s amazing how when you don’t have the built-out schedule that school provides you, how fast things just fly by.
I’m the kind of person who thrives off of being busy, I feed off the stress of a packed schedule. But I often find I over-commit myself to activities, work, social life, and workouts to the point where something usually has to go. There’s simply not enough time in the day to get everything done that I want to!
However, I’ve found that planning it all out in my calendar and bullet journal weekly is a great way to stay on top of tasks and ensure everything gets attention. I still drop the ball—a lot. But, keeping routine and dedicating an hour to each specific activity is extremely helpful. Hint, it’s especially encouraging to keep my workout plan on track (which significantly fell off during my travels last month).
Make Time for the Little Things
Also—no matter how much or how little time there is in the day, no matter what, always devote at least 10 minutes to the following:
When Time is All You Have
Sometimes, whether it’s grief, trying times in a friendship/relationship…or even if you have to wait to hear back on a job or project, all you have is TIME. You have to practice patience and grace, two of which I have NONE of, unfortunately. You can’t speed up the clock, so the best thing you can do is to stay busy and understand that sometimes only time will tell.
Not everything can have a band-aid slapped on it, and some things only heal with time. Be patient with yourself. It sucks to wait, but understand it is out of your control so it’s currently not worth your energy!
You Can’t Turn Back the Clock
And last but not least—just a quick reminder to you all that you can’t rewind those moments. You don’t get them back, so cherish each and every one of them. Enjoy being young, enjoy being old….enjoy being broke, rich, single, in love, or somewhere in between. Live for the now before it becomes a memory. J
That’s all for now, Ramblers!
