Many Fridays have passed and this one is almost gone, but I love the word for today. It is time to write for five minutes, unedited, posted, linked up at Kate's Five Minute Friday, then taking a little time to visit the link before mine. The word for today is TIME! Ready? Set? GO!
It seems like so many years pass by and you still think you have so much time stretched out before you to do all the things you want to do.
Then one day you are shopping for LED light bulbs in the hardware store and while you are reading the information on the packaging and consider how much money these special light bulbs will save you in your electrical bill, you also suddenly realize that these light bulbs are probably going to outlive you.
Time has suddenly shortened!
Your life passes before your eyes as you realize that "retirement" isn't that far away thing anymore. The ticking of the clock takes on new meaning as priorities are considered and sorted through with the word S.I.M.P.L.I.F.Y. marching to the beat of the tick tock.
The new year may be a couple of weeks old already, but in a moment of time I've resolved that the home I've lived in for almost 37 years needs a major decluttering. I'm done dealing with STUFF everywhere as my family continues to shrink. It is time to sort through, give away, throw out, and reduce the stuff that robs me of valuable moments. Keeping my home simplified will give me more time to spend with those I care about most. And that, my friend, will always be time well spent!
