Don’t have enough time?
Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same
number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Louis
Pasteur, Michelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas
Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.– H. Jackson Brown Jr.
Hi there. I’m late for my blog because I ran out of time! Wow, did I actually say that. Well yes I did! I was busy, I’m too tired, I had too much to do, I’m dancing 7 days a week, I’m preparing for the winter season. Lot’s of reasons for not writing my blog.
Check out this saying: Paddle, paddle – sometime big wave come.– Taro, Japanese surfer
Sometimes that’s how we create, doing a little bit at a time, then the job is done! As for time: “Extra-ordinary Results Come From Extra-Ordinary Effort”. That does not include saying you don’t have enough time. Yes, we all have the same 24 hours in a day. I wish I had 48 hours each day. I wish I did not have to sleep. I would speak perfect French, be on top of my exercise plan, run the top dance center in the country, and be a great success.
Yet, I have many friends who have the same 24 hours who achieve IT ALL in their lives. I watch them, see them on Facebook, chat with them, visit with them and they all seem so normal. They seem to “do it all” in their lives!Well, I’m still moving forward in my 24 hours in a day.
I have enjoyed life a lot more by saying “yes” than by sayings “no”.– Richard Branson
I am asked to do many things and I try to say yes to them all and fit it all in.
Not having enough time takes its toll, yet I show the results of a busy life in my looks:
Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people
to know why I look this way. I’ve traveled a long way and some of the
roads weren’t paved.– Will Rogers
What’s the answer? I have so much to do that I’m going nuts. Dancing, working, serving, planning, doing stuff all the time. Never can get it all done and what’s the answer?
Here is the answer….I’m going to laugh my way through the rest of my life. I’ll be busy until my last breath. I envision my last moments on this earth hollering “I’m not ready to go, give me just a little more time!” Count on this, I’m going with a song in my heart and laughter in my voice. Laughter is a medicine and I’m needing lots of it.
Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if
you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time
with them.– Unknown
I don’t think an Arthur Murray teacher has taught a great lesson until they have had a laugh so loud that the whole studio stops to join in the merriment. You gotta laugh in life and have a little fun. You’ll still be busy. You’ll still never have enough time to do all you important stuff. So smile, laugh and enjoy the journey.
Hey guess what? I had time for my blog.
Love you all,
