Wow! I cannot believe I haven’t posted anything in this blog since October 13th! Where does time go? My goal is to post at least once per month and to share the same message or topic I do on YouTube. Oh well, I have good intentions, don’t I?
We all have good intentions but we just don’t make the important things a priority each day. Time can get away and all of a sudden we are down the river without a paddle and find ourselves in some rough waters that overwhelm us and then something bad happens. It happens to you…it happens to me. Why? We are human and flawed and must be proactive if we are to change things in our lives.
Take Christmas shopping for an example. I remember one year on my way through a town in Middle Tennessee coming back from a meeting in Nashville I stopped by a mall to shop for my family. It was 2 days before Christmas. I believe I purchased 10 gifts that afternoon…all in one store! I am not much of a shopper. Time had gotten away and I kept putting it off.
In 2017, however, I am now finished by December 15th. Ordering on-line makes it so much easier! But again, it really just boils down to making time, planning the time, to do things that you could easily put off. Time moves faster and faster as I get older! It seems like yesterday that I was helping my mother put up Chirstmas decorations around our farm house. (I reminisce a lot this time of year about those days!) Hey, it seems like yesterday that I
was just dreaming of walking my girls down the isle to get married! Now I have 4 grandkids! Wow! I must be having a real fun life cause you know what they say, “Time flies when you’re having fun!”
Well I am having fun! (Grandkids really make life more fun!) Life should be fun. Making the right decisions and spending your time efficiently each day is rewarding. But time is flying so in 2018, PACT will be my theme.
A=Action taken daily
C=Consistency in doing
T=Time well spent daily
Therefore I make a pact between me and you to make a difference this year in people’s lives around me as I watch time more carefully because, “Time flies when you’re having fun!”
