Self-reflection is an important part of getting to know ourselves; it is a requirement in “doing the work.” The self-reflection question for today is:
“Am I using my time wisely?”
This appears to be quite a simple question. And yet, it is worth the moments we take to think about how we are using our time. Do we say “yes” to everything? Do we wake up in the morning and don’t stop until our head hits the pillow at night? Do we choose mindless activities as a way to zone out or fill time?
How do we spend our spare time? How do we organize our tasks when we have a busy day ahead and time is limited? Do we allow enough time to relax? Unwind? Feed our comfort system? How is our time spent with others?
It is important to evaluate how we spend our time so as to feel balanced. To know that despite busy schedules, we will set aside time for ourselves and our loved ones; that we can give ourselves permission to slow down, to enjoy, to appreciate the moments that we find when we choose our time wisely. For as Mother Teresa says, “Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin.”
