Today was a good day. My beloved and I went out for a run and Frisbee throwing session before having breakfast at a local café and heading home before the day got too hot.
It actually got me thinking about how I use my time. I tend to fill it up with meaningless stuff like all the perceived “have to’s” and “should’s”. What I realised however is that over the last week or so, I’ve finally got back into the groove of giving myself time in the form of mediation, in the form of exercise and in the form of just hinging out, doing not much of anything at all.
For all the time I put into my work, all the time I dedicate to my studies, all the time I put into everything else, I’ve neglected to see that I too am worth my time and attention.
The time I spend at the gym or out on a run, is not a waste of time – it’s time well spent on my body. The time I spend in Meditation is not a waste of time – it’s time well spent on my mind and my over-all spirit. The time I spend pre-preparing my lunches for the week is actually time well spent on my nutrition and health.
I had lost that somewhere for quite some time and now here I am. Jumping up and down at myself, saying “pick me”. Why? Because I am worth my time!
Where in your life could you be spending a little more time on yourself, for yourself?
