Filling the Jar

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    There are days when I am filled with contemplation. I seem to wake up that way. As I enter the autumn of my life, there are so many things that I feel I must do before I leave this planet. Of course there are the important things such as exercise, nutrition, work, play and other things necessary to sustain a balanced life. Those are the big rocks that fill my jar. And then there are the other things - the smaller pebbles that fill in the gaps between the larger rocks.
    Like everyone else, I only have 1440 minutes in a day and I must spend them wisely. In the days of my youth, I can recall looking at the stars in the heavens wishing my life away. Now, I look at the stars in the heavens wishing time would slow down as it seems as if I have more to do or things pulling at me than ever before. I am seeking balance, as at times, I feel like a top spinning out of control. Perhaps in my morning Yoga routine I will find center and balance.
    Make it a great day!

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this morning.

Good morning Michael.  Sometimes one can over-think things.  Sometimes its just better to follow the path that has already been written for you.
