It’s time for Five Minute Friday!
The time of the week many of us gather together on Thursday evenings on Twitter. Goodness, these friends are special people to me. I look forward to this gathering each week. We free-write on the same one-word prompt and share and encourage at Kate Motaung’s place. It’s a joy of my week! I’d love for you to join the fun… either on your own blog, in my comments section below, or on a piece of paper at your desk.
This week’s word:
At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child, or a parent. –Barbara Bush
And we all know how fast time slips past us. Just look at 2015. That was the fastest year of my life to date.
Friend, how do you and I spend our time?
Do we use our time for ourselves or for others?
Are we busy making money or making memories?
Do we invest our time learning and growing or acquiring “likes” and followers?
Do we stop to smell the roses, or are we too busy to notice?
I appreciate the quote above, as it reminds me what’s important. I don’t want to regret anything at the end of my life, and I imagine you feel the same.
Let’s take a hard look at how we’re spending our time… every moment of every day. May we be about spending time with God first, and with those we love. May we invest our time in making the lives of others better, and in turn, our lives will be better.
Leave work on time and go home to your family.
Stop the cleaning and sit and play with your children.
Close the computer lid and put away the device to sit with your husband or wife.
Me? I’m going to end this post to finish watching a movie with my husband and son.
Time. Let’s spend it wisely.
