Do you ever have those days where you think, “Where did the day go?” Or “There aren’t enough hours in the day!” Time is one of our most valuable commodities, and we seem to freely give it away. Who do you give your time to these days? Where you designate your time is where you place value in your life. Is your time in front of the television or behind a desk for 16 hours a day? Where you place value is reflected in where you allocate your time.
Do you know the value of your time? How much is your time worth per hour? What I know for sure, time is precious, and children grow quick! It seems just yesterday I was at my fighting weight of over 200 lbs when I, literally, rolled into labor and delivery to have my first child! Yes, time is also a friend when you are 5’3”!
This morning, I had the pleasure of being on the line with my internet provider for a little over an hour to reconnect my service. After being given 5 different numbers before transferring me to 5 different departments, I finally reached Edward in the Customer Loyalty department! I let Edward know how much I appreciate Loyalty and a Man in the same sentence! After continuing to pour sugar, cupcakes and the word “Darlin’” around a bit, I received $50 off my monthly bill, and my internet was restored! Such gratitude that my internet provider sees value in my time! The perspective is, $50 over 12 months is $600! Yes Ma’am! Thank you Edward! We stress, become busy and are distracted many times to forget about the gratitude with what is in front of us all the time. Time is also a teacher, if we allow it.
There is a principle and a promise for everything and everyone in our lives, and time will show us how those things and persons will play out. We should all be more purposeful with our time, because our children deserve nothing less. How are you showing up in your world? My best times are picking kids up from school and going for popsicles, reading a book by a fire or becoming friends with a new client. In case you are wondering, it is always a great time to buy or sell a house! Who do you know I can help? #powerwoman #powermom #claireandco
