Day 8: Share something you struggle with
Time is one of those things you take for granted when you have it and wish for more when you’re down to the wire. There have been times when I’ve joked about being the master of procrastination but strangely I’ve found some of my best work is done under the pressure of missing a deadline. The few times that I’ve taken my time with an article I have nearly pulled my hair out trying to find the right words and second guessing everything I put down.
Time and I just don’t see eye-to-eye.
Often times I find myself wanting to try things but realize I don’t have enough time. It’s sad because they few occasions when I have a day to myself with no worries of school or work I cannot justify moving from a resting position. It’s funny how time pays those tricks on you.
I sometimes realize I’ve taken a moment to reflect on the things I could have done so much better had I have had more time. Sometimes it’s a painting and sometimes it’s a paper. Sometimes it’s a semester and sometimes it’s a day. I have an ever-growing list of things to accomplish, some would call it a bucket list, and I think time will win the never-ending battle to finish the list. It’s unfortunate but it’s life.
If there were one thing I would want more of it’s time. Time to craft, time to listen, time to watch, time to read, time to spend with my family and friends, time to taste, time to rest and time to take a moment to breathe.
