My 13 year old son loves video games. He would play them all day if I let him. He wants to design his own when he grows up.
This morning, I wrote a note to him to look up the websites a dance dad told him about a few months ago. Then I wrote him another note that said, “Use your passion to create something new today.” Why should he wait until he gets older to create? Why not now? Why sit around playing someone else’s game when he can use his passion and creativity to design his own?
That applies to all of us. Why sit around waiting for something to happen to us? Why not get up and do something right now? My 10 year old daughter and I created an etsy store a couple of months ago but haven’t done anything with it, yet. We’ve been incredibly busy with other things and keep putting it off. But why can’t we spend a little time each day working on it?
It’s all about prioritizing.
Prioritizing and using my time carefully are two things I’m horrible at. Just ask my fitness moms. I’ve done a very bad job this time around and feel just awful. I’ve let myself get pulled in several directions and piled too many things on my shoulders. Slowly, my commitments are falling away on their on allowing me more time, finally. Today, I’m creating a schedule with a list of things I NEED to do and a list of things I WANT to do and allowing time to do both. I’d rather dabble a bit here and there than only focus on one or two things. This may not work for everyone but I want to give it a try. I’m tired of reaching the end of the day not having made time to do things I enjoy. I’m allowing life to get in my way.
We only live once. Make the most of it now.
