It’s Wednesday already, excuse me for stating the obvious. If you are a regular reader of Katherines Corner you will recognize this topic from previous posts. I have been chasing time for years. I was chatting with my daughter the other day. She quietly listened to me unburden myself of the list of unaccomplished tasks on my never ending “To Do” list. While I was telling her about moving the BTL ( between the Lines, bloggers age 50 and up) support group to facebook, I mentioned how long it had taken for me to take photos, add the pretty details, watermark, etcetera and get them loaded onto the BTL group on facebook. SHe stopped me right there. She said, “Mom, watch this”, she showed me her phone, as she took a millisecond to find a pretty photo from her favorite free photo place (somewhere, I suspect she has little elves involved) added the title “ lifestyle blogs” and then she loaded it onto facebook. Time spent doing this task less, than a minute, seriously a minute! She looked at me and said, “Mom, you make so much extra work for yourself, nobody will recognize the work involved only that it has been done”. Then she said, “Mom…you are not using your time wisely”.
Do you know that feeling when you are drinking from a glass filled with ice and your favorite beverage and you tip it up to far and the ice and beverage splashes onto you or down your shirt? Yes it was like that, bam here’s some ice down your shirt mom, and you are welcome.
So today’s post isn’t a recipe, a craft, or anything filled with fancy, it’s just me sharing the ice down my shirt, and me admitting I need to work smarter not harder. I will save you the pie chart, graph or other visual aid showing how I use my time. Instead I will share these pretty daisies; our local Walmart often has bouquets of flowers for $5. I will invite you to join us for the TFT (Thursday Favorite Things) blog link party tomorrow and ask you…
Are You Chasing Time?
