Taking Time Out

8 Feb

Our lives are constantly changing and there are endless things to address and manage as we move along. In the midst of our regular responsibilities, taking care of chores, managing appointments, and getting work accomplished, we have our personal dreams and desires that need attention. It’s easy to get caught up in the maintenance of our lives trying to keep things going. We may be busy, but it’s important to take time out and think about the dreams we hold dear and all the goals we want to achieve. It’s difficult to find true happiness by checking off boxes and getting lists of details completed. Our personal dreams and goals will continually niggle at us and remind us of what we really want. It’s good to be responsible and get all the details of our lives taken care of but real contentment only comes when we are living the lives we dream about and headed toward the destinations we really want. Time is a limited commodity and once it passes can never be recaptured. How we use it is up to us. If we are self-directed and in control, we can manage our tasks and still make time to do all the things we dream about. Our lives are ours to live and every decision we make takes us somewhere. We deserve complete happiness and when we make our dreams come true, we will find it.

There are only so many hours in a day and nothing we do can extend it, even if we desperately want a little more. If we are ineffective in managing our responsibilities and don’t get things done, we may complain that there just isn’t enough time. That may be true but often we end up with incomplete tasks because we ineffectively used the time we had. There are endless activities to distract us and if we are unfocused or lack discipline we may waste our time and end up completing nothing. Learning what works and how to manage our time going forward will help us find success. We can do anything and with proper planning will get where we want to go.

Down time is a good way to recharge our imagination and refuel our energy. Getting away from our responsibilities to take a walk, visit a friend, read a book, or simply think about our lives, can rejuvenate us and open new ideas going forward. We don’t have to move constantly to get things done. Stepping back and taking time out will often bring us new insight and help us see things in new ways. We know what we want and where we want to go. We can manage our lives to make sure we feel our best and have what we need to move forward. Everything is possible and we can do what is needed to make all our dreams come true.

Today if you’ve been running around getting things done and you’ve accomplished much but feel unsettled, take time out to think about what you want most. You deserve complete happiness. You can make all your dreams come true by planning carefully and managing your time. It’s all there for you. You can get to any destination you desire. Nothing will keep you from success. Plan well and go forward with confidence. Everything is possible.
