Where does the time go? Everyone asks that and today I wonder that. Life is so busy and we all tend to loose ourselves in the day to day, year to year rush. With my sisters recent cancer diagnosis and knowing time will be limited even though we don't know "how long", I have begun to look at my day to day life a little differently.
For a good 21 years I have worked and worked and worked to support my family, to support a practice I believed in to help my best friend. At times my family came second. As being the primary bread winner, I felt a responsibility, as a key person in a practice, I felt responsibility. Responsibility! A word I have always taken seriously. But along the way, I tried to give myself some me time and over the past five years or so, I have traveled somewhere every year. Something I plan on continuing.
But day to day, i am starting to cut back just a little. Replacing work hours with workout hours, replacing the 7 pm end of day with 5 pm happy hour, or a massage or girlfriend time. I have become more proficient with my personal defense weapon with routine target practice which really helps relieve my pent up aggression and I am getting pretty good at it too.
I am pushing for more family time all the way around, with my sisters, my children, nieces and nephews as in the end family is all that matters.
Only you can make yourself happy, healthy and content. Its time for me to do just that.
