Most of us suffer something called “time poverty.” When it seems there aren’t enough hours in a day to accomplish all that we need to do, or think we need to do. We’re always looking for time management techniques just so we can “make” more time. I’m one of them.
|On my way to clean my friend’s house!|
And sometimes I’m not.
I enjoy a lot of flexibility in my life. I manage a home and school my children. Both things could easily be a full time job on its own. But our schedule isn’t etched in stone. I can usually squeeze time out of most any day.
Recently, I was asked by some close friends, who are going through a tough time, for some help. They both work full time and are in the process of selling their house. The house is empty but needed to be cleaned before it could be shown. Neither of them had the time.
I’m very happy that on the first day of 2015 I was able to share some of my time with someone else.
Though it is true that each one of us only gets 24 hours each day, we can add time to someone’s day by giving of ours. I did the cleaning and they got to check it off their to-do list.
There are days when I don’t have time to spare. There are days when others share their time with me. Time is one of the most precious gifts. Often, it’s the most valuable asset we have. Use it wisely. Give it generously.
