Out of Time

It seems like I'm usually out of time to finish or start many things.  I know that I don't manage my time very well which obviously produces my "out of time" feeling.  I don't know if it's that I don't get up early enough and the day goes on whether I'm ready or not or that I would waste the time even if I did get up earlier.

I know time is a precious commodity; maybe I just don't quite believe that one day I"ll be out of time?
For instance, I woke up this morning later than I'd planned and I still took my time to enjoy the morning moments rather than to get moving.   It's my Daughter-in-Law's birthday and I'm taking her for a manicure/pedicure in an hour and I've yet to jump in the shower; the sad thing is that I've missed out on my workout and several other things I would have liked to have accomplished, but I'm out of time.  Maybe if I'd made a list I would have jumped on the task of crossing the items off?   It seems to be the story of my life so far.

Either way, I'd love to learn how to manage my time more wisely and still have time to enjoy moments without rushing.  Do people who are good time managers have more time to enjoy?   Please enlighten me; it's obvious that I don't have the answer. 


  1. A long time ago I heard a talk by Wayne Dyer about this very subject. He theorized that all reality is based in thought--"the world is wonderful!" because you feel wonderful. "The world is horrible!" because you are feeling horrible. The same is true with time. Telling ourselves we don't have enough time results in us--you got it--not having enough time.

    So a few months ago our family put this too the test. Every time one of us felt that "I don't have enough time" feeling we were to stop and say to ourselves, "there is plenty of time to get this completed. I am at peace."

    AND the best part? It worked. :)
    I still don't know if I'm super efficient at using my time, but I now feel like I have 'enough' time...

    Great post, Sharon Broadhead! :)

    1. Thanks so much, Lisa Stott! :) That makes so much sense to me! I'll give that a try.

  2. I learned that I had to choose what I would do with the time I have/had. I tried to do everything, be everything to every body. All that happened was exhaustion.
