I suffer from a strange malady.
I am a "time" glutton.
Let me explain:
I have to force myself to be generous with my time. (Notice the "my" that comes before time.) And it doesn't come easily for me.
See, I like to cram as much as I can into as little time as possible so that each moment is ready to explode like a volcano because it is stuffed beyond its capacity.
In other words, I have a tendency to multi-task. Multi-tasking robs me of my peace and makes me feel as if I am rushing through life and using my time unwisely. And that is exactly what I am doing. I know it, I fight against it...and still catch myself stuffing each moment with too many things. Too much thinking, too much activity.
A wise use of time is to focus on the task at hand. To give it your full attention and live in the present moment.
Sadly, I often don't even notice the present moment because I'm too busy overfilling it.
It's okay if you think this is an odd thing to post about.
I think so too.
