It was my cycling class where the instructor, encouraging us to sprint, said, “Go, go, go, you can do this. You can do anything for 30-seconds. Try to get to 140”. That is FAST! I pedaled like crazy. Absolutely right! I can do anything for 30-seconds. Sprinting was tough, but I did it. Then I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I could apply, “You can do anything for 30-seconds” to other aspects of my life. Pedaling fast and hard to accomplish my daily goals would translate into me having to aggressively multitask. And, sadly, I don’t multitask. I just cannot! And, because of that I struggle to find time to reach my daily goals. While I try to catch time, I find that it already has flown by! I talk to time, all the time.
In hopes to slow down time, I motivate and meditate everyday. I visualize my time and activities. Visualization helps me gain control of my time and day. My activities through the day is then guided by this sense of control. Time seem to move with me! At my pace. Very peaceful! When time moves with me, I can smell the roses, feel the rain on my skin, and let the sun shine on me!
A slice of my time goes into annoying my kids. Not intentional! I’m raising two hot blooded teenagers. They are smart, quick and all about multi-tasking. Not me, I’ve said that before. I’m not fast enough, according to them. My son said one time that we (his dad and I) are from Cavemen Age! I laughed so hard at that. My kids are fast and furious with technology. Three screens sitting in a semi-circle, all lit up, each running different program. Kids are finishing homework as they Skype, watch video, listen to music and play a game! Add to this mix an Apple Watch and an iPhone, both pinging frequently. As I’m forming my words in my mouth to say, “Who’s texting?” They have already replied to several texts and have moved on to the next thing. I admit I’m not with my kids fast paced time. Do I need to start multitasking? That’ll make me into a cool mom! And, I won’t have to keep running after time trying to catch it.
Suddenly, I’m feeling very tired! I’ll just keep negotiating with time, at my pace. Right now, I negotiated to enjoy my present time, and finish this topic on my blog! THE END. Wait…wait…one moment – by the way, I’m going to my cycling class tomorrow, and will sprint. At my pace:). Thanks for waiting…hugs.
And, thanks for checking out my blog…until next time!
