1.2.14 – How Do You Spend Your Time?

My brain is still on resolutions today.

The view out of my window.

The view out of my window.

It’s snowing outside. The kind of day that makes you want to curl up in bed and not have an adventure. It makes me think about how often we let our days go by us without really living in them. Many of us are often passive participants in our own lives.

Many of us have reasons why our lives cannot be the way we’d like them to be – but that doesn’t mean we can’t make each moment count. We might have limitations, but those limitations don’t have to regulate us to a passive life.

For most of my life, I was never one to waste a moment. I was always doing something. I made the most of everything.

For a variety of reasons, I’ve gotten off of that track. I tend to tune out life far too often.  I used to think it was a coping mechanism, but tuning out the world is the exact opposite of a coping mechanism.

You aren’t coping if you aren’t dealing. 

I hope that by journalling everyday I will begin to once again spend my time in the moment – even if that moment is terrible. Because terrible or fantastic, moments are meant to be lived.

    “Quit looking at me and go live your life.”
