Ever feel like all you need is more time in your day? Lately I have been feeling that way. I have been so busy lately that I feel I am never home to get much of anything done. My day starts at 5:30 and after work, homework, sports, and dinner my day usually ends around 8:00/9:00 at night. That is usually the time when I get some of my writing done if I'm not too tired.
It's a long day, and there are a lot of people out there who have even longer days. I know, my husband is one of them. Usually these days people take vacations from work just so they can get things done around the house. Remember the days of taking a vacation and actually taking a vacation to REST? What's that word?
Scary as it may seem, but in today's world we are over booked. I know I am and I know a lot of my friends are too. We rush around all week trying to get everything done, but have we ever stopped to think about why we were rushing around in the first place?
The holidays are coming and you know what that means, more rushing. Everyone will be rushing to the store to buy the latest gifts and to get the best buys. People will be shopping around to make sure they have everything for all of their holiday parties and we are supposed to do this in between our usually incredibly hectic routine. Yeah, right.
Ever ask yourself why we rush around all the time, over booking ourselves to exhaustion? Is it time to find ten minutes to remind yourself of why you do it.? If you can't come up with a good reason, then it's time to reevaluate your schedule. If you can, then savior those ten minutes and enjoy the reason.
My reason, my family. For me there is no better reason then that. It's that simple. What's yours?
