I've had lots of time to ponder a few things lately. I keep coming back to limiting myself with the recurrent thought of "not enough time". I have too many things I really, deeply and truly want to do - and my question isn't so much HOW to do something, but how to have time to do something..
The simple solution of course, is to become a time bender.. :)
To simply (but truly) believe that I have plenty of time. To shift my focus to "lots of time", rather than "not enough hours in the day".
Can it really be that easy?
I'm going to play with waking up each morning and telling myself that I have loads of time.
I have finished playing with the idea that if only I could get organized enough, things will flow more smoothly and I will have more free time on my hands. Are you kidding me? How did I ever fall into that old fashioned time management trap?? I'm lucky enough to always be in high demand, there are always more jobs to do and my "free time bonus" is to get to practise essential self care. If I ever get time, it is instantly filled with something. Something wonderful or something not so wonderful.. ;)
If I manage to instead create the feeling of enough time, I will dare to fill my day with the things I want.
I have a feeling I need to dig deeper on this. If I began to schedule more things tomorrow, I would definitely set myself up for failure. I can however, begin to retrain my self talk, and my thoughts, to focus on "ample time".
