Take Time to Make Time: Day 236, Cib 2

TAKE TIME TO MAKE TIME   Greetings! We are happy to have this time with you. Please understand that we know your life at times is very difficult and that you have time burdens. Yet in truth, there is no time. Humans create deadlines as a means to ensuring a job gets done, yet all it creates is stress.

There is much stress involved in waking up at a certain time, getting to work, getting the children off to school, eating lunch at a specific moment, returning from lunch, finishing chores before you get off work, getting to church, meeting friends for dinner, making it to the movies on time, getting to the store before it closes, postponing fun until the weekend or retirement and the list goes on.

How can you find balance in a world filled with deadlines? You could begin by taking an inventory each time you look at your watch or clock. Begin to notice the things you do that involve being somewhere at a specific time. Also, notice your relationship to time. Do you feel anxious if you are running late?

Do you rush through other activities to be sure you get to the next location on time? Are you enjoying the moment or fixated on the future? Begin to find ways you can simplify your life, if you are feeling rushed all the time. There are many things that can be left undone or are not yours to do in the first place. Let others be responsible for the things they choose to do.

Learn to say “no” to things that are not of high interest to you. Many of you are in relationships with people who distract you from doing things that would ignite your passion. Take a look at the time and energy required to keep these friendships alive. Maybe some of them need to go by the wayside, at least temporarily. Each moment of your life can be enjoyed fully.

It is when you overbook yourself that the in-joy-moment begins to fade. Before you arise in the morning, take an inventory of what you wish to accomplish during the day. As the day progresses, weed out those things that take you away from your desired goals. Learn to do this each day and eventually you will gain full control over your time, doing those things that bring you joy. Begin today. What better time than now to change a habit?   Selamet!  Cib 2
