So what is all the tick tock about these days? Is “time” really that important or is it overrated? Well, you have to first ask yourself, “What would I do if I had more time”? This would be after:
putting in your 40 hours at your work,
- commuting an hour each way,
- grabbing groceries,
- cooking dinner or picking up dinner,
- taking kids to ball practice,
- giving the kids baths,
- ironing work clothes,
- attending school conference,
- walking the dog,
- raking leaves,
- cleaning house all day Saturday,
- going to kids ball games,
- wash, rinse, repeat!
I don’t know about you, but I’m already exhausted just from reading your list! So what one item above could you contract out? You got it! CLEANING! Now ask yourself my first question with the new knowledge that you have an extra 4-6 hours gifted to you. “What will you do with that extra time?” Here is what I envision as we celebrate the magic of Christmas…
Baking and decorating cookies with the kiddos
Curling up by the fire with a book while the kiddos are out playing
Christmas caroling at a retirement home
Making (not buying) homemade gifts for loved ones (Hint, hint family: I love the wine racket from a pallet!)
Take a hot yoga class!
