I decided recently that I wanted to take control of my time.

So much of life is planned out for me. There are so many things I have to do.

And I decided that I need to do more of what I want to do.

So I am.

I'm not worrying about how it will look if I don't do what other people want me to do or think I should do in the little free time I have. I'm not saying "yes" to other peoples' idea of fun if it's not my idea of fun.

When it's possible, I'm doing what I want.

Because right now, that just how it needs to be.

It's how I need it to be.

I'm sure it will change. (Probably in about 9 weeks. Maybe. Or maybe not.)

But, for now, I claim my time for me.

tell it to me tuesdays

PS: I've been singing this song all week.

I agree, sometimes we need to do what we want instead of doing what other people expect us to be doing. Enjoy your time!

Time for yourself is so important. I've learned that the hard way because this year has been overkill on stuff for others and now I'm burnt out and waiting for it all to end.

Oh, good for you! (And I am a tiny bit jealous.) Can you teach me how to do this??

Good for you! And good luck! It's sometimes so hard to say no to others, isn't it?

I need to learn to do more of that, and then not feel guilty for it.

I so get what you are saying here, I recognize it in every way. I started creating time for me as well, but for the time being all that comes out is exhaustion. So my time is filled with some what boring time at home rather than using my time wisely with walks outside and so forth. Hope it changes soon to energy and fun and meaningful things.
