Precious time

Time is precious.  It’s cliché I know. But it’s true.

We spend most of days at work and our ‘free time’ isn’t really ‘free time’ – we have so many responsitibilities: laundry, cleaning, mowing the lawn, dishes, groceries to name just a few. I decided a while ago that when I have ‘true free time’ (time outside of my area of responsibility)  I want to spend it with people I want in my life, and doing things that make me happy.

That’s exactly what I have been doing this summer.  I’ve gone to weddings I want to go to, barbeques where there are people I want to catch up with, and long weekends away with the love of my life.  I don’t think I have ever been any happier.  I feel so much more relaxed.  I feel like it’s made me more productive at work and made my workouts so much more effective.

I hope that I can always make decisions like this, but sometimes it’s so hard to pushback and say no when inside you really just don’t want to spend your time in that way.   I feel like there will come a time (in the near future!) where I just have to do what I have to do.  However, it’s been great being able to make decisions that I’m 100% happy with all summer long.  I’m going to enjoy this ride while it lasts.

How do you make decisions on where to spend your ‘true free time’ – do you always do what makes you happy?  Or do you find you are constantly spending time with people you don’t want to spend time with?

I’m a 30-something female who’s striving to be the healthiest woman I can be through diet and exercise. In early 2013 I was introduced to the world of Paleo. I completed Whole30 and had fantastic results. I had finally found something that worked for me! My blog is a jumble of my thoughts as I take the journey through my life. Somewhere for me to unleash my views, my challenges, my failures and my successes (hopefully!).

  1. I am really good about saying no to places I don’t want to go to but I am awful about wasting my time and then needing to use my free time to catch up :/
