Don't Apologize for How You Choose to Spend Your Time

itsabouttime_clip_image002One of the best parts about growing older is the ability to speak your mind without feeling guilty. I have learned to take charge of my time without making apologies.

One of the greatest time wasters is doing something you don’t want to do because
you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings.

While in my early 20’s and still single, friends frequently convinced me to ride along with them while they went miles away to pick up or drop off this or that. It was sometimes even fun, but when I returned home, my chores and tasks were still undone.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s very important to make time for having fun with family and friends. But, it should be fit into YOUR life plans.

When someone interrupts your well-planned day, you don’t owe them an excuse; you owe them the truth. Don’t hesitate to share the truth, “That won’t work for me, I have different priorities today.”

This time like all times is a very good one if we but know what to do with it.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
