The Gift of Time


Have you ever thought of time as a gift? Something that has been given to you? A treasure that is super valuable?


Time is so often referred to in negative tones:


"I just don't have time to do this or that."

"I will do that in due time."

"It's about time!"

"Who has time for that?"

"If only I had time to do that!"

"I only have a few minutes of time to do this or that!"


Time is truly a gift. We each have been given time in this lifetime. Some of us live long lives and others have lives that are cut short. 


The question then is what are you doing with your gift of time? How are you utilizing the time that you have? If you knew your time was almost over in this life, how would you spend the remaining time?


We all have the same seconds, minutes and hours in each day. How we choose to spend those moments is up to us. When you focus on those moments as a gift, it can change the choices we make daily.


Once the seconds, minutes, and hours go by - they are gone. We cannot get them back. Therefore, shouldn't we treat our time with intention and care?


As we venture into this new year in 2018, I am choosing to view my time as a daily gift. I so want to be intentional each and every day and to not waste the time I have been given. I want to treasure my gift of time.


How will you live out this day today? 


Have you fully LIVED today?

Morning Paula.

If only I could go back and recover all the time I've wasted on trivial things.  Looking back I have few regrets, one of them is not getting into this business before I did

Hey James Dray - hope you are well.  You are so correct in recovering time. Once it is gone, it's gone.
