TAKING TIME – Day 61 in a year of…

Day 61, September 21, 2016 @8:06

I realize today that I must take the time to do the things that are important and the things that I love.  I can’t make more time.  But I can take time for these things and for myself.  I am here.  This is important.  And I love the tap, tapping of the words.  It is rhythmic. It is poetic.  It is the song of my heart.

I have been good at deceiving myself, saying “when I have time, I will do…” and so the piles pile up.  Things go incomplete.  Dreams stay in Neverland.  Wishes in the well.  I saw all that in a flash today.  Feeling fatigued and sweaty, wishing for a soak in the tub in the middle of the afternoon.  Feeling squished by many chores to be done.  Laundry brought home from the lake, defrosting the freezer, and …I was squished by it all.

I defrosted the freezer.  I soaked in the tub.  I had time.  I took time.  That was it. It was wonderful.  I have to remember to do it every day – take time to do the important and the lovelies.  Did you take time today?

About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.
