There Just Isn’t Enough Time….

barefoot walking in grassI catch myself saying this sometimes then have to remind myself: I have the same 24 hours in a day that is given to everyone else, how am I using it?


There are going to be fires to put  out, deadlines to meet, errands to run, tasks to be completed but that does not mean that time has run out.


It simply means I need to stop and get control of my schedule instead of it controlling me.


My schedule has been controlling me lately and I’m not very pleased about it.  Yesterday, actually, I was freaking out about it a little.


That’s when I remembered a quote I once heard: “There are seven days in the week and one day is not one of them.”


One day I will clean up this office, one day I will get organized, one day I will repaint the downstairs, one day I will finish that article, one day I will clean out the garage, one day I will go after this goal and that…one day…one day…


Just not today.


Today I am taking the day and spend much needed and desired time with my family.


Sometimes you need that day to remember what is important to turn tomorrow from one day to that day.  Give yourself the freedom to take a day just for you and forgive yourself for actually taking that day – you deserve it.


Tomorrow I will make a one day into a fantastic day, but today is my day.
