At the beginning of every week, I think to myself, “this week, I will stretch more.” And every week, it somehow escapes me. I find that this is true with so many things in my life, and it’s pretty scary.
I want to do yoga more, but I can never seem to find the time.
I have material to make a maxi skirt, and I keep meaning to start it at the weekend. But, suddenly, the weekend is over.
I am out of homemade bread rolls, and I keep meaning to make more. But I have no yeast, and I keep forgetting to buy more.
Perhaps these problems are all pretty small, but I end up wondering if the reason I’m not getting these things done is because time just slips by without my realizing, or because I am a major procrastinator. Possibly, it’s a bit of both.
Last weekend, however, I decided it was time to make a change. No more “I’ll get around to it when I have more time.” I will never have more time. But I can use the time I have more wisely. So, this weekend, instead of sitting around because I was tired, I tackled my closet and the basement, and took a carload of stuff to Goodwill. I touched up some chipped paint in our dining room. I bought a bathtub repair kit to help improve the look of our gross old tub. I made a list of everything that needs doing, and this time I will get it done.
As for the skirt, that might be a project for this weekend. I’ll do it while I’m waiting for my bread rolls to rise!
What would you do if only you had more time?
Yoga for me, for sure. I might even start taking it more seriously and try to become certified as a yoga instructor. But that really does take a lot of time!
