Tic Toc - What is Our Time Really Worth?
I am sitting at the doctor's office waiting anxiously for the nurse to call my name so I can sit in the exam room until I am finally graced with the presence of the almighty doctor.
The question of "what is our time worth" came to mind.
Many people would say "time is money", but, I couldn't disagree more. As I get older I find that money is no longer on the top of my list of important things in life. In fact it is now way down on the list. Time is very valuable to me, but, in no way can it be equated to money.
Of course, I work for a living, and when someone takes up my time I feel cheated and frequently get a little cranky.
BUT, these precious moments that we have on earth should never be disregarded.
Special moments for me are getting a big, sloppy, kiss from one of my favorite men in the world, my golden retriever, Rocky.
Special moments for me are sitting at my desk with my feet up and laughing so hard I get tears in my eyes over one of the hundreds of funny things Will comes up with.
Special moments for me are doing goofy things with my daughter, Erin, who has the same crazy sense of humor as me.
Special moments for me are going out to dinner with my husband Craig and having him reach across the table to take my hands while he tells me how beautiful I am. (He is a good liar).
I am not willing to give up any of my special moments for any amount of money.
What is time worth to me? Time for me is invaluable because it allows me to live life to the fullest in what short time I will be here.
