Episode #20 – Time for Yourself Is Necessary
With the lockdown we are currently facing, it’s imperative that you take time for yourself. It’s not only imperative, but it’s also necessary. See, one thing that I noticed, that I haven’t observed in a while is the families and the kids that come out to play. In other words, the outdoors has become more popular due to the restrictions. Just like me, I’m sure it’s allowed all of you the option to invest in yourself.
At times, our everyday lives can seem to blind us from the many opportunities and gifts we are blessed with. So caught up and distracted, it can be easy to lose sight of the things that truly matter. But thankfully, all the time for yourself you’ve been longing for has been presented. All the things you said you had no time for have been inserted into your calendar. So what’s your excuse?
The truth is, none of us should be able to find any excuses. Now, more than ever, time is actually on your side. I say take this time for yourself to create all of the things you once spoke of, and bring it into existence. You’ve spent all of your time tending to the needs of others, whether it be your job or family and friends. Therefore, the moment to invest in yourself should now be directed towards keeping all of the promises you initially made. Once again, what’s your excuse?
If you thought you were making excuses for why you couldn’t then, what do you have to say for yourself now? In other words, have you open up to reality or are you still stuck in your self-made illusion? Will you seize the moment, or will you shy away from it?
When Time for Yourself Serves You
What will you do when all you have is yourself to deal with? What’s your life mean when the future is in your hand and all the time you sought was found? Now is your time, your moment, to make sure the time for yourself is used properly and efficiently. It’s easy to say I will, but it’s way more beneficial to say, “I’m doing.”
The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the way we interact, not only with other people, but also with ourselves. Steal back time so that it remains yours. In other words, as Maxime Waters once said, “Reclaim your time.” It’s not actually about taking back what you want, but actually what you deserve. Taking time for yourself isn’t and should never be an option. It should be a way of life, a way of being.
I believe time is the most valuable asset to mankind. Because once it passes, there’s no going back. Every and anything that you seek to do under the sun, now would be the time. As we all continue to adapt to these times, we have so much to experience and so much to gain. To all the ones we love we have the ability to create precious moments. To all our plans we have the ability to realize and make real.
Invest Time in Yourself So You Grow
For once, listen to that little voice in your head that is telling you to go when the fear is telling you not to. It’s your intuition, your inner truth. The time is now, not tomorrow. As we all are learning now, things can change drastically from one moment to the next. So why not take advantage of it all while it’s right before us? I believe life is precious and that we should always be looking for ways to maximize it. So invest time in yourself instead of the things going on outside of you.
Remember that all that you are, all that you need is only at arms reach. You have the ability to not only speak but also the ability to create what it is you want. It’s your choice. Leave not your destiny in the hands of others, but rather, that of your own. You can do this, I promise you. Catch me next week with Episode #21 – You Were Built for Hard Times. Things don’t always seem clear and they may not always be easy, but at the end of the day, you were built to overcome them. Tune in same time, same place and catch the feel.
