We have all heard the stories about the lottery winner who finds themselves right back where they started financially, often only months after the big win. They blew the wad and didn’t think of how to use the gift they were given to create something even greater and longer lasting with it; maybe something so great that it could last for millennia.
Well, I have learned that money comes into our life, and money goes, but then it comes again and continues this cyclical flow throughout our lifetime. I have earned over 10k a month consistently for years and also as little as 6k for a whole year. I’ve snorted cocaine through $100 bills. Blah, blah, blah.
I have made a lot of money and I have circulated a lot of money. Here’s a truth; Money is not spent, it is circulated. We circulate money by giving it in trade for goods and services, and we receive money for goods and services we give to others.
I have found that the greater the outgoing, giving with gratitude and joy, the greater the incoming, which of course I also really enjoy. So that’s money. If we pay our bills in gratitude for the service or goods we received, we have a good relationship with money it is said, and we are in the flow.
Time on the other hand is spent. There is no ROI on time. We can not make time, grow time, extend time, stretch, manipulate or change time; it just is, and once we spend a minute, it’s gone from our “lifetime” forever. We have a wad of time; we just don’t know how big the wad is.
We generally don’t know exactly how much of this “lifetime” we have been given, to do with what ever we choose, but we do know that it is finite and temporary. How are you spending your wad of time these days?
People often talk about time management, but the truth is we cannot manage time, we manage activities. So, ask yourself, what are the activities I regularly partake in?
I listen to people complain, blame, make excuses and procrastinate and time still doesn’t notice, it keeps on ticking. One day, we might look up from our busy-ness and realize that we have very little time left with which to create what we will.
Time is the one thing we can never get back or make more of, so choosing what to spend our precious time on can change our world from one of drama to one of really, happy.
I choose to spend my time, focusing on and sharing happy stories and uplifting the hearts and minds of everyone who finds these words. I choose to spend my time Being to the best of my ability that day, the Change I want to see in the world.
Don’t blow your wad of time on anything that does not expand you, bring you and the world you live on a little more happiness in some way. We are all here together on one tiny ball of water and dirt with one job, create something cool! Tag, you’re it!
