Time is constantly passing by. There’s just no stopping it!
We all have the exact same number of hours in the day, though. Nobody gets to be so successful, or so poor, to change that. What we choose to do with the time we’ve got, is up to us.
I’d suggest choosing wisely! Sometimes it feels like it’s out of our control, though. Somehow, the day goes slipping by!
If we’re willing to look a little closer however, we might see where it’s all going to. The truth is, we’re making choices throughout the entire day.
We make a choice to sit on our phones, playing some insignificant game. We make the choice to be still, seeking wisdom. Every last drop of it was something that was either said yes or no to.
I choose my commitments. It was my choice to leave the business world to be home more for the kids. When the house is due for some tidying, I have to make a decision to do it (and tell others what they need to get to). The list could go on and on.
Eventually, time will come to an end – but it hasn’t yet. So, we can make it count while we’ve still got it!
It’s impossible to prevent time from moving forward. If we really want to fit something in, we’ll figure out how.
We’ve All Got Time
I’ll finish by telling you a quote I recently read. It says, “We all have the same 24 hours in a day. If someone else seems to be accomplishing more than you, they’re sacrificing more than you.” Now I don’t know if I agree with the way this was meant, but it’s true! We can make the choice to sacrifice – with our family, with talking to God – to get other stuff accomplished. Ultimately, it’s our decision. What are you going to say ‘yes’ to today? Have you thought long and hard about the things you’re then saying ‘no’ to?
