Time... Are you spending it wisely?


When I think about “time” I think it is something so precious, there is never enough of it; “time” can fly by in the blink of an eye. So I wonder why so many of us spend “time” on things we don’t love or necessarily care about.  And why do we do it? Is the secret to true happiness in the “time” we spend on things we love or don’t love?  

When I was a little girl visiting my grandmother in Monterrey, Mexico, I used to sit and tell her I couldn’t wait to grow up and be on my own.  I wanted to travel the world, fall in love, and have kids and most of all I wanted to work. I am sure there is something very wrong with the last part of that sentence. She would tell me “Mija you need to enjoy your childhood every moment is precious, new and full of hope. Once you grow up “time” will fly so fast you won’t enjoy your life as much as you can when you are young.”

One thing I can say for sure is Grandmothers, and Mothers are very wise. Now I wish I was back in Monterrey playing with my cousins and enjoying my childhood. Telling my cousins and my family I love them and value the time we spend together.

Today my life is full of appointments, meetings, events, events and more events. Now don’t get me wrong I love my life but the lack of “Time” got me thinking…. This happens every once in a while you know the “thinking” part.

In a blink of an eye the day is gone.  So I ask myself did I spend my “time” wisely? Did I reach out to people I love and tell them I loved them? Did I make a difference in the world? Did I change someone’s life by offering them assistance, advice or my time and just listened to them? Did I spend my “time” doing the things I love?

Hour Glass

“Time” is precious; make sure you spend it with the people you love doing the things you love. Don’t give your “time” to anything or anyone that isn’t making a positive impact in your daily life. “Time” and life go together.

If you are making a lot of money but don’t have “time” to enjoy it… Then what is the point? Money is fluid it comes and goes but “time”… once it is gone you can’t recover it.

Spending “time” with the right person can make “TIME” stand still…..spending “time” in the right job can make your life worthwhile.
