This not having a camera thing made me awfully contemplative.
The most common question people ask me is: “where do you find the time?” It’s true – I do a lot of stuff. I have a more-than-full-time job, I teach several fitness classes a week, I bake, I blog, and I have a family, house, and dog. The question is faulty I think. I don’t find time anywhere, what I do is try not misplace the time I already have.
Time is a pretty precious commodity. That’s true for all of us, no matter what we do in our lives. And it’s so easily wasted, mis-spent, misplaced, and generally abused. We abuse our time ourselves, on the internet, watching TV, napping (and please don’t misunderstand, all of those things are super important – and there’s a place for them in every single day), and we let others abuse our time too. I guess if I try to stay focussed on what needs to get done, then it does just get done. If I deal with the time abusers (and my own time abuse) in as efficient a manner as possible, well then, time (or the lack of it) seems to just take care of itself.
I remember when I was a kid, my mom never sat down to watch TV. If the TV was on and there was a show she/we wanted to watch, she was ironing, baking, doing something at the same time. When I watch TV (and believe me, I like to watch TV), I’m always doing something else too. Blogging, baking, organizing (never ironing, mind you, I hate ironing). My point is, she never sat still. She never needed down-time. And maybe that’s hereditary? Because I don’t really ever seem to need it either. I’d much rather be doing, going, being. That’s just who I am. There’s always something to be done. Now that I type that though…I wonder if it’s actually an awful curse? I think I need a nap. I just tuckered myself out.
