I’m ashamed! I went the whole month of May and wrote nothing. Its not like May was uneventful. I did what I consider a lot of fun things. In fact, when I ponder about the previous month, I think I experienced the whole array of emotions. Somehow time got away from me. I’m sure you have experienced that before. Time flies when you having fun, or working, or not paying attention.
For us real world dwellers, time if of the essence. We spend so much of it at work during the week (some of us 40 hours +), that we literally spend our free time doing nothing. I remember when I always wanted to be moving, and now I am so engulfed during the week that I want to do nothing at all on the weekend. Then on Monday mornings I feel horrible and ridiculously silly for doing nothing at all to better my life.
My goal in life is to utilize my time better. I want to be more selfish, and give less of my self to things that drain me, and more of myself to things that fulfill me. I want to forget all of my childhood brainwashing, because lets face it, success will¬†mostly likely not happen the way our parents told us it will. I want my time to be more useful to me. Our time is the something we can control. We do not know how much of it we have in life, but we can certainly delegate how we use it. The way we spend our time is a choice and though our choices may be limited, we still have choices to make.
Here is my promise for the rest of the year, since there are now officially six months left of 2014, I promise to utilize my time better. I promise to make it worth while and let it benefit me more. I promise to use my time to make myself more successful. I promise to get off my butt, and spend as much time as I do working, building me up!
