Do you control your TIME? 

Or does TIME control you?

When I was a busy executive, raising three children, I always felt like a pinball in a pinball machine. 

I survived on caffeine, adrenaline, and an unhealthy dose of anxiety. 

I had an awesome life (big career, beautiful home, husband, three kids, and various pets).

And yet, I never felt like I could enjoy my life. 

I was too busy surviving it. 

I went to bed at night with a racing mind,

And I would wake up exhausted every morning. 

I kept telling myself that I didn’t have enough time. 

I just needed more of it. 

I came to learn that time was not my problem. 

My THOUGHTS about TIME were my problem.  

I saw myself as a victim of my own circumstance… even if it was a circumstance that I created myself. 

I made myself crazy by piling on things and being a martyr (aka perfectionist) to get everything done ASAP.

I did not create time for space. 

I thought stillness was a waste of time. 

When I learned to change my thinking about time, 

I became more efficient at work. 

I started making more time for fun… and having more fun.

I stopped wasting time worrying about what I could not control.

In return, I got a greater sense of control. 

Would you like to take control back in your life and start having more fun?

Happy Wednesday!
