The easiest phrase to say is “I haven’t got time” when actually we can all make time to do things we really want to do never mind how busy we are.
For me I avoid my French homework – because “I don’t have time”. When actually I want to do it (really I do!!). I just can’t be bothered to make the effort – which is just plain silly!!
I used to avoid doing my Life Coaching ‘homework’ as I was scared of what I might find within me. Scared I wouldn’t know how to cope with the me I’d kept locked away. And – oh so stubborn!! After all being the me I thought I was and was reasonable happy with had kept me safe for the past n years so why unearth and examine it all.
Wrong! Not only have I discovered it’s OK. I’m beginning to feel safer than I’ve felt for ages (years). And the support (from emails to phone calls) I get from my LC (between sessions) has actually meant I’ve felt safe as I’ve gone through the process. I should have taken that leap of faith/trust earlier!! I should have invested more time in me rather than wasted time barking up the wrong tree – so to speak!! Recently I have invested more ‘time’ in my homework and, as a result, life is improving – and at a faster pace I think – no doubt Stephen will let me know if I’m wrong!!
I love making time for writing here and also taking my round trip to the other blogs I follow. I love making time to comment on their blogs, to take time to understand what they are going through and to throw up the odd idea and view which may, in some small way, help as they’ve helped me, dear reader – and continue to do so (I hope!!!)
We all have time. I hope I’m beginning to use mine better!
Now where’s that French homework – I have a lesson tonight!!!
