Make Time!

Updated: Sep 9, 2019

Time is one of the most valuable things that a person can have, give or get and it is free. You can have all of the money or possessions in the world, but if you do not have any time left on this earth to enjoy it, then your worldly valuables are useless to you. There are not too many things your family and friends would appreciate more from you, than you making time for them. Most people live a very busy lifestyle, but MAKING TIME FOR THE IMPORTANT PEOPLE IN YOUR LIFE, AND MAKING TIME FOR YOURSELF, IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS ANYTHING ELSE THAT YOU HAVE TO DO. People consistently say that they do not have time, or that they are busy, but as long as you are living you do have time. It may help to reevaluate and then change how you spend your time. Perhaps a good way to do this, would be to tell the important people in your life, that you do not have much time available, but you will make certain to find some time for him/her, and then follow through with it. This acknowledgement will speak volumes, and following through with it can help build and save any relationships that you have. No one can build or maintain a relationship with anyone, if you do not make the time to do so. We make time to work, clean, eat and sleep because these things are important to us, our family, friends and relationships are important too. Making time can be a difficult thing to do, even when the desire is there, but it is vitally important to find a way to make time for all of your important relationships, if you want to keep them. Be creative, keep your communication brief and time spent short, but make it happen. Never forget about yourself. Making time for yourself is just as important as making time for anyone or anything else. Never cheat yourself of your basic physiological needs and personal interests. Caring for yourself can extend your lifespan and never put off for tomorrow the things that interest you today. You and the important people in your life only have a certain amount of time allotted in a lifetime, so make time to enjoy your life today, and enjoy the important people in your life today, tomorrow is not promised to any one. Try not to be selfish with your time by just making time for others and not for yourself, or just making time for yourself, but not for others. Making time for yourself and making time for others is equally as important. The reality is, you have to make time for yourself if you want to exist happily and people need people. Living your life completely alone can be a very lonely existence. The time is going to come when you will have nothing but time on your hands. If you do not make time for others now, you may not have anyone in your life later and you will not have anyone around to spend time with.
