The One-Minute Writer: Today's Writing Prompt: Time:
"Busy people have lots of time because they never stop. It is harder to start if you do nothing.
Busy people always try to squeeze in one more task, say yes to one more job, join one more committee...
What are they running from? The only important thing is to take time to savour your health, lifestyle, friends and families.
Life is not a dress rehearsal...
Live for the moment."

Yes - more exercise, eat better; all worthy things to aim for, but I am acutely aware that we could die tomorrow, so I am trying to slow down and enjoy "life".
I need to work to maintain an income but it is not "me".... it is just one part of my life. The rest is up to me to create for myself.
