Wasting time is something I worry about. I think it is common for people to try and use their time wisely and make the most of it! As a mother I work to keep up with all my responsibilites….my kids, work, the house, the hubby…it is a lot to do!
I don't take a lot of time for myself and when I do….I sometimes feel guilty…like maybe I am wasting time doing something for me when I have a whole list of things I need to do for other people! Am I alone in this line of thought?
Wasting Time Quote Eases Mommy Guilt
When I read this quote about wasting time….I thought it was really profound! I had never thought of my activities like this before! If I am enjoying the activity then it really isn't wasted time, is it?
There are so many hobbies, sports, recreational activities that people are involved in. I don't get why people do certain things…I wouldn't find any enjoyment in a lot of those activities…so to me it would be wasting time! BUT…if that person is enjoying it, then their time was well spent!
For instance…my husband would probably never take a long hot bubble bath. To him that would be wasting time….to me it is a little break from my day and a chance to relax and maybe read a little bit in peace! It is not wasting time for me to relax for 15 minutes and I realize that now!
So…this quote was a revelation for me that I haven't been wasting time all these years….I have just been enjoying the life I was given! I just need to schedule a little more time doing things I enjoy!
