This past weekend we lost a family member and as I was sitting in his house I was reminded again of just how important it is to pay attention to how we spend our time.
Are you spending enough time with family and friends?
Are you chasing someone else’s dream?
Are you accumulating material things instead of investing in experiences?
Are you constantly letting yourself be distracted by social media?
Are you spending your time talking about other people?
Are you really listening when people talk to you?
Of course it is natural at times like this to be reflective and think about what is important in life, but what if we had a daily practice to remind us just how important our time is. I know that it is impossible to always be ‘on’ and thinking about our days, but spending a few minutes each day to focus on one of the questions on this list could provide us with a fuller life.
