Most of us go through life rushing from one thing to the next. We are constantly making plans, we even eat quickly, without tasting our food. Time, there never seems to be enough of it. It's easy to let things go past, until soon, we loose touch with friends, forget to play with our children, even loose touch with ourselves.
A few years ago I realised that it is not a question of not having enough time, but a question of how we choose to spend the time we do have. It is time to make time work for us. My language changed. Instead of saying "Sorry, I don't have time", I started saying "I'll make the time.." Time to play with the kids, to visit a friend, to write a letter. Let us make time work for us instead of feeling its working against us. At the end of the day, time really is all that we have, and we cannot buy it back.
