This is a short blog because it is about something we all hold so dear: time.
I am too busy
I have been so busy
I did not have the time
Where did it go?
Hold on a minute…
Maybe in an hour I will have time
We make our own time. We are the creator of our own time fillers.
When I think of some statements around time like “ I have been busy” or “ I had no time”, I realize that it really means that I did not make xyz a priority, or xyz was not something I wanted to do with my time. I know that often these honest answers would be hurtful to the person questioning me about my day, but most of the time I am very much in control of my day and fill them with things that bring me happiness. Often, I can’t fill the day with all the things I would love to do, but I prioritize. This does not mean that I am unhappy with my busy life, it just means that I filled my time with things that bring me joy or closer to understanding.
Do you know of another way to say “I have been busy” or “I had no time” that does not carry the negative connotations of time wasted or stress?
What is your relationship with time? Why are we so protective of our time? Why are we so busy, yet we want to have more time to do?
