“It’s not the time, but the will that is lacking”
“In truth, people can generally make time for what they choose to do; it is not really the time but the will that is lacking” ~ Sir John Lubbock.
I realize that some of you will disagree with this sentiment. I appreciate that time is often lost in the hustle and bustle of our days, but you need to seek it out – easier said than done, I totally understand. Even if you’re not making time for exercise, make time to be mentally still (if only for a few minutes a day). I don’t often take time to be mentally still/calm/quiet.
I would encourage you to make time for something that makes you happy. While many of you will argue that TV makes you happy (which it can) I would encourage you to seek out something a little more active and engaging. Even if that means reading, or walking the dog, or taking a 10 minute meditation break – it’s important.
Find the will to find the time. It will be hard, but it will be rewarding. I am going to work at doing this too.
