Time goes quickly when you're busy..

There’s an old saying
Don’t put off till tomorrow what you can do today…
and whilst that may be sound advice have you ever noticed how quickly time goes when you’re meaningfully occupied. Before you know it - the day is over and you still have much to do. Well .. don’t worry - take stock of what you have achieved and recognise the achievements made. If every day you take small steps in the direction you want to go in – before you know it – you will have arrived at your destination and enjoyed the steps along the way.

Two things that may make the journey even more interesting could be to ask yourself at the end of the day – what nice thing did I do for myself today? ( It could be as simple as just taking a walk – or having an extra long - extra bubbly bath) and perhaps even more importantly - you could also ask – who did I help today? Or - What nice thing did I do for someone else today?
At the end of some days you may not feel as though you helped anyone. But - you can always make it your mission for the following day!
A nice thought to carry over
And remember to be kind to yourself also!!
Rest is equally important


  1. Nice post.

    I think sometimes it's a helluvalot easier to be nicer to other people than it is to be nice to ourselves. I for one will strive to be nicer to me.

  2. Yes your post is very common place we most often forget to cater to our needs and banter to everyone else's whimsical demands.....sometimes we just have to say NO to others and be selfish why not!!

  3. @Reggie - I agree it can feel easier to do for others and be nicer to everyone else - yet we too deserve a treat or two every now and then!!
    @ChilledLeo - this can wear you out!! - and they may just move onto the next. Yes sometimes it's about self preservation too.. Work a little TCM ( Take care 'a Me) time into our daily lives!!
