“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time’ is to say ‘I don’t want to.’” – Lao Tzu
|I do understand what this means, yet it’s got to be wrong. There’s nothing I’d rather do than blog – yet, last week, seven days went by and I looked up and realized I’d put it off for a harried schedule every day. And now it’s a week since I sat down and put to paper all of my current thoughts because of time constraints. Family and things happen. It’s life.|
Or, was it a poor job of managing?
Or could it be I I took time to daydream a bit?
Downtime maybe. But I didn’t mean to take downtime. Can your body take downtime when you are not looking?
I think maybe that happened.
For over five years I’d been writing every morning. When I sent the latest book off to a professional editor, I felt myself kickback. I didn’t mean to. It just happened. I played with grandchildren, I had sleepovers. I cleaned my basement. That unintentional kicking back bled over into the other areas of my life giving me a sense of freedom. It felt good. Changing my pace, changing my momentary focus.
You can’t let life stand in the way of living.
