Make the Time

I am constantly trying to encourage others, and myself, to make the time to do what you want to do.

  • Help others.
  • Read a book.
  • Cook dinner.
  • Write.
  • Volunteer.
  • Educate others and keep learning – with an open mind.
  • Get enough sleep.
  • Recharge your batteries.
  • Exercise.
  • Take care of your self.
  • Relax.
  • Enjoy a movie.
  • Sit outdoors (not today, it’s freezing, actually below freezing!)
  • Look around you.
  • Sleep in.
  • Help more clients.

Yesterday, I was driving the kids to school and with every fiber of my being, I wanted to stop. On the highway. Just for a moment, to take pictures of the morning sky. (I only saw this skyline because my husband was traveling, otherwise he is the one who does this every morning – thank goodness for early risers!)

Of course, I couldn’t stop off the highway, they would have been late…and thus making our youngest late…and in turn, I would have been late for my morning workout AND for a client meeting to boot!

I just wished, how I wished, that I could make the time to do ALL of the things that I enjoy. I love seeing “things” in a new way, a different way and I would love to have been able to be a semi-professional photographer in my life. Alas… it was not meant to be – nor was snapping a picture of that skyline, because when I was driving that same road only 2 hours later, the image was completely different and the mood was gone. I, of course, remember it; however, until the “memory-printer” is invented, no one will ever be able to see what I saw, again.
