Morning Musings: Wasting Time

I think I have to take a step back. A step back from things that I don’t enjoy and people that make me feel lesser. A step back from mindless scrolling and wasted time watching vlogs of beautiful people doing better and more interesting things. I wonder how much time I waste watching vlogs. I wonder what amazing things I could accomplish if I wasn’t sitting around watching the lives of others as mine passes me by. I wonder how amazing life could be if I reached out to grab it instead of sitting around..thinking.

I could be a better….

…if I didn’t sit around watching other people do it instead of me.

While dreaming and imagining might have opened my eyes to all that is possible, it certainly hasn’t made anything happen. I am a dreamer, but why can’t I be a do-er as well?

Today I woke up early, and worked out. I ate breakfast and showered before 10:30am. So where did the four hours between 10:30am and 2:30pm disappear too? I can’t recall a single important thing I did other than call my grandparents. And what about tomorrow? I command myself to accomplish one thing that gives my life some meaning every day. So that the wasted hours no longer seem like a waste.. So my hours make me feel alive in the best way. A good friend of mine told me the other day that “time is the only thing we will never have enough of”. I’ve heard that before so many times, but it wasn’t until I heard her say in conversation that I started taking note of my time.

How will you take note of your time?

Sincerely, Rowan
