Good Advice

Recently happened upon some good advice:

If there is something you want to do that you don’t have time for, you need to do less of something else.

Man does this ring true for me. There are a million things I want to do that I know would nourish me and make me so happy yet I can never “find” the time. The concept of “making” the time by consciously choosing to do less of other things is so obvious and simple yet never occurred to me. I always think I will do these things in some fantasy future-time, when all my dishes are done and miraculously stay done, the baby takes 3-hour naps (or is in school, ha!), etc etc etc. But the truth is that life will always be like it is now, with a lot of commitments, a lot of little things on the to-do list, and a household that needs my love and attention. I need to take a good hard look at how I spend my time and decide what I am going to do less of. Then I will have time to do more, and to be more.
