Sometimes it’s hard to not notice the lack of connecting going on all around us. Visibly, we see people connecting with their laptops and cell phones but it rare to to see people slowing down long enough to really enjoy life at a reasonable pace. Often times I hear the words “I don’t have time for this” or “I don’t have time for that”. Well, I have some advice and a challenge for all of you reading this. My advice is, time is a gift that is given to us each and every moment. We are writers of our own stories and we decide where we put our time. We can hide behind the notion and misconception that we do not have time or we can take responsibility for the decision on how we utilize or waste it. Ask yourself a question. What is important to you? Who is important to you? If you are not putting your time into what is important than now is your time to make a change. If not for you then find the motivation to do it for your who. Don’t put it off any longer, and don’t deceive yourself into thinking you don’t have a choice. You do have a choice. You do get to decide. Oh, and do it now, because eventually our time really does run out.
