Every once in a while I do a post on the most valuable commodity on the planet, time. It’s the one equalizing factor in life. It doesn’t care about your gender, age, sexuality, ethnicity, time goes on regardless. How you spend your time is critical to the quality of your life. No one knows when their time is up, we could pass tomorrow or live to 100.
So a quote: “Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time.” From the book “Phrynette Married” by Marthe Troly-Curtin.
“Wasting time” as a concept is extremely subjective. It is imperative that we take stock of what is valuable to us. As an example I am a gamer that is my hobby, it has been since 1983 (yes im ancient). Some believe it’s a waste of time.
Only you can decide what is of value for your time. Remember life is very short and if you are trying to spend your time adhering to someone else’s value of time you are truly wasting it. Remember what you like to do is okay, maybe you knit? Maybe you’re a cyclists, maybe you hunt, maybe you game…
The point here is, and why this quote is so potent is if you are enjoying the activity even if you or someone else thinks it’s a waste, it isn’t. You have to maximize the time you have, even if you are “wasting it” something can come along tomorrow, like a pandemic, and change everything for you. So if you get some time to engage in an activity you enjoy today, don’t let anyone tell you you are wasting your time.
You are doing awesome, one day at a time.
