Yikes!!! Time is just a-tickin’ away. I just realized I haven’t written a post for over 3 weeks now!! Not that I haven’t got ideas or stuff that needs to be said… I’ve even got a couple dozen drafts waiting to be finished and posted…and new stuff just keeps pouring in waiting for its chance to be placed onto the printed page. And I refuse to use the excuse that I don’t have the time…because I’ve learned how to stretch time.
I know that time can be bent and shaped according to my inner state. It shrinks and expands. When I’m impatient, waiting in the slow line, time takes forever, and when I have a deadline, I can magically finish a 5 hour job in one hour. When I’m away from a loved one a week seems like forever but when we’re together no amount of time is ever enough. And when I’m out on a silent walk in the woods, or deep in a beautiful meditation one moment holds infinity within it.
I love everything that brings me back to remembrance of the importance of every single minute of our lives…whether it’s a deadline or a slow line, an un-done blog post or just a tree in the woods.
PINCH OF SPICE: This simple process is one way to stretch time and change your life!!!
It’s time once again to take an inventory of how you spend your time. Review your last 2 or 3 days and make a list of things you did hour by hour. Then make a list of your priorities in your life. Does your inventory list match your priority list? What can you add to or subtract from your days to make them more meaningful…to make each minute be a well used minute? Be sure to add in some walks in trees and some meditations to bring that timelessness back into your daily doing.
