'EndoWeek' Picture

America Village - Time

Each Friday (or thereabouts)! I will endeavour to post things of interest that have grabbed my attention throughout the previous seven days. Things to inspire, fascinate, educate and generally get you buzzing. 

Time can be a funny thing, it can pass us by in a frenzy of activities and 'doing' at such a pace that we are unable to catch up with it. These days I seem to be so busy that sometimes it's easy to forget about the 'little' things and precious time.

I love this time of the year, the magic that Christmas inspires. It reminds me of the things that are most important - The special things, the little things that we forget about in the muddle of 'doing', working, parenting, housework... Little things that are actually big, things like:

  • Having a long hot bath in the afternoon.
  • Relaxing and lingering over a good magazine.
  • Making christmas decorations with your children.
  • Playing board games and finishing jigsaw's.
  • Sitting on the sofa and cuddling up with your three year old - without thinking that you have something more important to be 'doing'.
  • Knitting in bed.
  • Sipping hot tea in bed in the morning, whilst reading a chapter of a book.
  • Walking alone by the sea shore.
  • Sailing.
  • Learning how to tie Flies and Fishing on the lake.
  • Shooting Tin Cans.

Things I used to do before I was too busy, before there was 'to little time in the day'!

Time comes and goes - Things can change without us even noticing, we all have a natural rhythm which is part of nature's natural rhythm and cycle. I find that it is important to remind myself of this, especially when time is getting ahead of me and I seem to think that there isn't enough of it. 

Live in the now - RECLAIM YOUR TIME!
