So often we say we don't have time or we're too busy, but all we're really saying is that it is not enough of a priority for us.
Priority is the centre point of time, energy and effort allocation. And if by analysing your schedule you feel like the allocation is off, then this is your cue to create change.
Our brains try to keep us safe and to our brains change is unsafe. But what about a life whereby you live by someone else's priorities? Or worse still priorities set for you by society? How safe is that?
The only question you need to ask is what is important to you? And how is your schedule reflecting and supporting this?
If your health is a priority, make time for it. If the love of your life is a priority, make time for them, engage with them, show them love, through your energy and enthusiasm as well as your time. Work taking up too much of your time? How productive are you actually being? And what about those kids? Number 1 priority? Yet you're stuck at work and grouchy and tired all the time as a result, not to mention ashamed of your body and disappointed in yourself so of course you snap at them constantly. That's not priority. That's turning the joys of your life into chores because you lack pride in the place that you are in.
What kind of life are you allowing for yourself by sacrificing your priorities for what you think you "should" be doing?
