Hey y’all, welcome to Love Tidbits, episode #43: The Gift of Time 

Time is a measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues.

Another definition of time that resonates more with me; time denotes our existence here on earth. It’s the space, or the dash, between the date of our birth to the last day of our life.  It contains a personal history of who we were, how we lived, who we knew, and what we did with our lives.  

Henrik Edberg continues: “Time is filled with memories of love, joy, laughter, pain, sorrow, anger, forgiveness, emotions all entertained, some internalized, some expressed, and some exploded. In the midst of our living, time continues on its endless journey. Time is a gift, though we rarely stop and acknowledge it as such.  With every day time is equally allotted to everyone – 24 hours, and what we do with that time is totally up to us. We can spend our time wisely, or worthlessly, we can squander it, or invest it, we can enjoy it, or abuse it, we can live it, or retreat from it, but it moves on regardless.” 

Y’all may remember the analogy that I’ve used and seen many times.  Where you place large rocks in the jar first, then you add the pebbles, and then the sand. This simply illustrates how to use our time wisely by doing the important tasks first, and then filling in with other things where there’s space available.  

Time is something that I’ve always tried to maximize. I like to get a lot done in the shortest amount of time possible. My cute son shared with some of his friends, “my mom can get more done by 10:00 AM than I do in a whole month.”  Now, this can be a good thing and a not so good thing, because what I have also struggled with is taking time to slow down, to not be in a rush, and to truly be present and enjoy where I’m at.

Thankfully, over the past few years, I’ve learned better ways to create space and time for the things I really love and really want to do.  

In my Lovin Me Program for December, I’m going to teach some amazing tools to help you organize your time in whatever way works best for, to become more intentional about what you’re doing with your time, and spend it doing things you really love and want to do.

And in closing, I love this quote by Philip Zimbardo: “The greatest gift that you can give to others and to yourself is time. Embrace the gift of time, whether you give it or receive it.” Hmmm, something to think about. Have a good one y’all, and here’s to time and love.
