“Don’t say you don’t have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.” ~H. Jackson Brown Jr.
Finding time is impossible, making time is merely difficult.
I struggle every day to make time for my creative work. Between my job, other responsibilities, and the desire to just kick up my feet and relax, I barely squeeze in minuscule amounts of time for writing.
And I hate myself for it.
Don’t worry, I’m not going to spew out a depression fueled rant about myself here. I only want to share this with others who say they can’t ever find the time to do the things they want to do.
I can’t find time either, and I’m really bad at making it. It’s taken years, but I’m nearly done with my first novel. I have struggled to balance my priorities, usually choosing relaxation over writing, and it will be a struggle the rest of my life.
I used to blame work. But it’s really me. I am proud of what I have done so far, but I know I can complete much more if I only choose to dedicate my time to it.
Time. There is enough. We just have to make it.
