Women: What Do You Wish You Had More Time For?

  • 11 of 12

Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will. – Nelson Mandela

I wish I had more time so I could make more money. I wish you did too.

Like all of the others, this is a reasonable wish. If you have unmet wants and needs, it’s easy to wish for more hours in the day so you can make more money. If you try to steal them from sleep, read the last page again. It’s not working. If you are tempted to compromise your integrity to get more money, know that it won’t work out for you in the long run. If you’re really struggling to make ends meet, it’s time to regroup. You may be living beyond your means.

This 24-hours in each day is all we have. The connections we have in the community, are only as strong as they are. The energy we have to spend is all that we have and it these things aren’t adding up to what you need, it’s time to find a new way. If you’re living in alignment with the truth of who you are, there will be enough. Perhaps not more than enough at any given moment and certainly not always what we think it should be but enough. Period.

If not, it’s time to look for what’s out of alignment about the way your showing up in the world.

I love this post, partly because it made me feel good about all the little things I DO managed to do for myself instead of just thinking I'm not doing enough.

Christy, I always enjoy your articals, but there is one thing I feel I must point out. Our bodies are NOT machines! Or temples. They are animals, human mammals that our 'spirits' live in for their earthly visit.Perhaps this old belief of 'body as a machine' is at the root of a lot of self disreguard that incourages us to let others determine our use of attention.We don't assume the bodies of our pets or work animals, or food animals are machines, so why do we think our own bodies can be treated like equipment that can be pushed to the max every day? I'm a massage therapist and there are some clients whoes personality just annoy the hell out of me, but I can always emphathize with their bodies. It's like a neglected horse with a stupid rider who has no sense of the emotional nature, or physical needs of their own loyal steed. Acknowledge your body as a creature who loves you and you will not confuse your spiritual nature with your bodys nature.It's the one that wants to move and dance, sleep more, drink more water, make music and get the mind to shut up long enough to just be so the energy that feeds all can flow thru unobstructed.

Thanks for the lovely post. It's interesting to see what people said. I would like time to pick up music again and learn how to use my second-hand table loom, but soon I will be making time to travel and learn some other things, so for now those things can wait.

I've got all the time I need. I spend it with my Life Review in mind.

Thank you, great read! I'm homeschooled so I do lots of these things in my free time, after school work. Everyone can always make a little time for something. I enjoy art, guitar, sleep, reading, and pretty much everything on this list :)

Having enough time is age related. Never enough when children are smaller. Just do the best one can. Time management can be applied with success to all other life circumstances.
