I’m finding as I grow older that it’s not about finding time, it’s about making it. There are always so many things that keep me busy, most of it busy work. The crazy thing is that the busy work can so easily crowd out any time for other things, little things that matter – things like taking a few minutes to visit a friend or reading a story to your child.
Years ago I had a friend who always used the phrase, “Don’t sweat the small stuff. And it’s ALL small stuff.” I wasn’t sure I was on board with that thought then but I sure understand it now. Today was a good reminder that the things that really matter can’t be checked off a to-do list.
I hope that among my just enough days and my productive ones that I never forget to take time for the things that matter.
