What do you do when in the midst of attempting to gain more control over your time, you become so busy that it’s hard to catch your breath? I’m asking because this is the exact situation in which I find myself now.
I’m working on creating more space in my days. Meanwhile, the process of making these changes have added more noise than I’m comfortable with.
What’s a recovering Type-A (at least I like to tell myself I’m recovering) to do?
For now, I’m pushing through the noise. As I maintain focus on what I want, the screeching static dims to a white noise whisper. This isn’t the pin falling silence peppered throughout my day that I’m seeking, but it’s a necessary and temporary acceleration to the flow of my life.
Coming out on the other end of this crowded maze will allow me to arrive at the place where those serenity filled moments are more frequent. It’s the storm before the calm. I hope.
We each have a finite amount of time in this life. Although we can’t foresee how much time we will be given, we can decide how to spend the time we have today.
How do you see yourself spending one of your most valuable limited resources — time?
I’ve paid off my consumer debts. I’ve decluttered. I’ve minimalized.
Theoretically, I’m no longer required to abide by the same rules I imposed on myself before. This is taking a little time to resonate with my mind that is still scrambling to make debt repayment progress.
Today I find myself in the fortunate position of restructuring how my time is spent. The process, however, is taking quite a bit of the very element I’m trying to find more of –time!
I value my time. I feel it’s fleeting nature. I want more control over the time I’ve been given.
So that’s where I am right now. How about you? Do you feel that you have control over your time? What would you like to change?
