Ever feel like you don’t have enough time, especially at home? Consider this fact: the statement “I don’t have time” is never true – unless of course it is a purely mathematical calculation of time, as in “I don’t have time to get to the store before it closes”. In reality, you have the same amount of time as everyone else – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is up to you to choose how you spend it. Everything you do with your time, whether you realize it or not, is a choice.
Now stop here for a second, and breathe. This is BIG. In fact, this is a huge subject for a morning message! Your beliefs about time are entwined with deep emotions – and can enable you to avoid dealing with deeper personal issues (ouch!). But I want you to help you start questioning in ways that will make a difference to you. And nothing will make more of a difference to you than noticing what you do and think at home, and seeing how much of that doing and thinking is your choice. Be prepared to be shocked and amazed.
Here are 3 things you can do to feel like you have more time:
- Stop telling yourself don’t have time. Really. If the words “I don’t have time” cross your lips – or your mind – hear alarm bells in your head. Thinking you don’t have time will make it feel real. So stop it. Change your thoughts. Resonate with “I have time for everything that is important to me. My days flow with ease.” and notice how different time feels.
- Embrace the power of one minute. One of the biggest breakthroughs you can have around time is seeing for yourself just how much you can do at home in a minute or two. Especially when you feel like you don’t have time, take a minute to tidy the kitchen, make your bed, or put on a load of laundry – do something to contribute to the order and beauty of your home. Do this several times day. This habit not only teaches you the power of a few seconds, it also raises the vibration in your home, and energizes you, making time feel expanded.
- Admit where you have a choice. As you go through your day at home, ask yourself, does this activity contribute to me feeling in charge and excited about life? What can I do at this moment to bring love, order and beauty into my life at home? See where you have been “leaking” time. See where you are “avoiding” dealing with what is there, physically and emotionally. Begin to change your choices of activities, bit by bit, and notice how time seems to expand. Bonus: As you become more conscious of your time, you can also enjoy times of personal leisure on a deeper level as you let go of guilt around not being “productive”.
