“The time will pass anyway… you can either spend it creating the life you want or spend it living the life you don’t want. The choice is yours.” ~Unknown …
It is easy to get so caught up in the flow of everyday things, or busy chasing errands and tasks, that we forget that we are in control of our life. That is a fact. Yet in spite of this, the truth remains that we have the ability to make the choices that determine how we experience life every day of our lives.
Perhaps we limit our choices to avoid conflict, or due to perceived issues. Or maybe we are afraid of the potential outcome, or wish to not become an inconvenience. But how often does any of this come to pass? Is it truly worth our time and energy, or does it merely add needless stress and worry to our lives and distract us from what we really want?
Life tends to get away from us. Yet in spite of this, we choose how we spend the moments of our life–“creating the life we want or merely living the life we do not want.” In the end, it really comes down to what are we going to allow to consume the precious hours of the life we have left?
Spend your day creating something you find worthwhile living over again.
Questions to consider:
Why do we use the word “spend” when speaking of time?
What are some things that affect how you decide to spend your time?
How do you define “the life you want?”
