A Matter Of Significance

             We had company today.  There was much family business which needed to be attended to.  In person.  So, my parents arrived.  We got much discussed and accomplished, plans were made, appointments were confirmed.

              Then, I took their picture on our front porch.

I also Instagramed ’em.

              What didn’t happen, was any quiet meditative personal time.  So, we’ll be going with the following page for our message today.  (Not surprising though, as I got up this morning, I knew this would be our direction.)

“Give time to your priorities.

You have dreams, activities, and relationships that are meaningful to you.  They matter a lot, and you feel happy thinking about them – they are your priorities.  When you nurture them, you’re not only more cheerful, but you feel more positive about yourself.  It’s an act of self-care to devote time to what you value.

Despite appearances to the contrary, you really are in charge of your schedule.  You can give attention to whatever you choose, and we angels will keep interruptions away and help ensure that your responsibilities are met.

Acknowledge any fears and insecurities that trigger procrastination, and know that they are perfectly natural and normal emotions that merely represent a resistance to happiness and nothing more.  Lovingly laugh at your concerns, and then move ahead with your beloved dreams.

Even spending a few moments on what’s important to you can elevate your mood, self-esteem, and energy levels.  Devoting time to your priorities then becomes a healthy new habit that you develop gradually, so have patience with yourself if you occasionally backslide on your way to giving them your full attention.

Thought for the Month:

I give time to my priorities.  I set everything else aside and devote myself to enjoying what matters most.  I take baby steps in the direction of my heart’s true dreams.”

  2. I’ve been working on this for awhile now–making my schedule reflect my priorities. It’s so easy to let things that aren’t important take over. We used to call this “tyranny of the urgent” back when I was in college– where you deal with things that seem urgent, but aren’t necessarily important. Number one on the list is spending less time online, which works better some days than others, but still I’ve been amazed at how much time I’ve been able to reclaim just by not letting myself sit down and get started. Great reminder.

    I love that phrase, “tyranny of the urgent”
    -so accurate.
