Grateful for Time

time, is merely a perspective, a point of view
Time, time time, see what's become of me. When I look around for my possibilities. The Bangles

I have discovered that life is based upon choices and perspective. This has become even more apparent since having children. Time is merely a tool used to measure the day by. It's a perspective, a point of view. You either have lots of it or not enough of it. 

Since moving house two weeks ago, I suddenly have more time. I don't know if it is the novelty of a new house and space to live in, but I really feel as though time is on my side. I walk the kids to and from school, a good fifteen minutes each way. I get the domesticity out of the way early and discover I have time up mys sleeve. Lot's of it. And I like it. More time for family togetherness.


The more I don't focus on time the more I seem to have. And this makes me very Grateful...and happy.

Time is precious and it's good not to waste it, me thinks. To appreciate it is perfect. x

That's a great way to look at time. We do need to appreciate it don't we... and perhaps take the focus off it a bit. x

Defiantly a good way to look at it. :)

Life is too short to be wasting it in the car. Sounds like your new home works for you, and walking to school? Divine!
