It is amazing the amount of time we have in a day. 24 hours, every day, for 365 days a year. It doesn't change ever. We feel our days are shorter in the winter, when we lose daylight. However, it is still a 24 hour day.
If we think about basic math and account for our time in advance, as we would a financial budget it might actually make sense to me. Budgeting has not always been a strong point for me, however, I am not a spendthrift, nor am I miserly. I just think about it at the moment. How important is it at the time? Could I purchase a new item even though I haven's saved up the cash? These are things we all struggle with and make decisions about daily.
I have begun to think about MY health as a scale of importance, as a nurse, I have always put others before me. A selfless act that is now showing in my health as I age. It is high on my priorities, and needs to be handled appropriately. I have this vessel I live in that was given as a gift and I need to cherish it as God cherished me enough to create me as one of his own.
One of my goals is to think of myself each day in a positive manner. Pick one thing about me each day and focus on that. Build on it and let the rest of me shine. I need to stop looking in the rearview mirror of life and stop thinking about my mistakes, poor decisions and indiscretions we call choices. Yes, Choices, all made by me. Only I can make amends with them and push them away. I spend so much time worrying about how things could have been. How things can be, and how I want them to be. Sounds sick! And, it is a Waste of Time.
