My Time

Posted on February 3, 2018 at 9:50 AM

My time is all that I really own, and the time I have today is not guaranteed. "What is real?", I ask myself. Only this moment, this moment that I am in, it is real, it is here, it is my now. So, I remind myself to slow down, to take a break, to live here, in this time, in this place, to be grateful, to enjoy THIS day... to enjoy my time. The next minute, hour or day is not guaranteed to be mine. No matter how much I may plan for it, I have to wait until I arrive IN it to actually live out my preconceived notions.

Knowing this, I owe it to myself to live the life that I want to live. To be the person that I want to be, to use my time wisely, to spend some time on me. I won't let the world, people, places or things rob me (ever again) of MY TIME!

I want to be free and in reality we are all free, but it is the uncertainty of not knowing what tomorrow will bring that keeps so many of us chasing tomorrow instead of living today. A constant cycle of planning, preparing, worrying, being unsatisfied and ungrateful for what we have right now. Oh if I had only known then, what I know now I would have, should have and could have, but that's alright. I have this moment, this time right now and with it, I plan to move a little slower... I'm in no rush for tomorrow, cause it might not come, but I have today and I plan to absorb it like a sponge absorbs water from a surface. I want to spend my time on me... 

Inspired by a thought to treat myself to a movie, a walk in the mall and a day with my phone turned off. ;)
