I have good news and bad:
The bad news is that I’m having one of THOSE days. My stock expression is a sneer, nothing seems to work the way it should, (I wonder why) and everything is just sort of bleak.
The good news is that I rarely have these sorts of days. I am really pretty even tempered, even pleasant most of the time. I genuinely love my life and express it routinely.
The further bad news? I sometimes write on days like this. Proceed at your own peril.
It’s about time. It is an incredibly valuable commodity that NOBODY sees to have enough of. Doesn’t matter how rich or poor, time is the one thing that you can’t afford to be without. And feeble attempts to manufacture more time never, ever work.
I can manipulate my available time, and give more to current priorities. I can become a complete sluggard and waste every available morsel of what I do have to spend. When I do that, I am inevitably filled with guilt and remorse. Which is in itself an epic time waster. Guilt over past failings is about as useless as anything can be. It’s like wasting time TWICE.
Time is a currency. Maybe the only currency that is absolutely real. I can afford to waste a nickel or a dime, but when I start leaking away dollars and hundreds it is a real bad day.
I am on a fixed budget. I get just exactly one amount of time. How I spend my currency is a direct influence on how I feel and how I do.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for spending some of your time currency with me today. I know how valuable that is.
I promised you, my reader, that I would give you what is on my mind. That I wrote this and kept my promise may be the highlight of this day. I am certain that I will come to regret the time that I squandered writing this. Oh well.
I’m just sayin’
