Don’t Have Time for Fun & Happiness

I caught myself saying this the other day to a friend: 

“Yeah I love to paint but I just don’t have time for it…”


Time is relative to the decisions you say yes (or no ) to. 

Not making time for the things you care about is stupid. And your body and mind knows I­t­ too. Our bodies remember how we felt when we were doing things we love. We all have a time in our lives where we remember being the happiest and alive we’ve ever been. “If only I️ could go back to that…”

Have you had the experience of loving something, like dance or tennis, but for some reason or another you stop doing I­t­? Maybe you get sick, something comes up at work and you derail into only doing things you like and never doing things you love. 

I️ understand you have responsibilities, and things to take care of. But if you forget to do things you love in your daily life, you’ll wake up one day a little duller, a little unhappier and chronically stressed from going all in on “What you have to do”.

You’ve got to make time for work and play. (I’ve learned this the hard way)

Time, like most things in life, is a decision. I­t­ reminds me of breathing. How you spend your time can happen unconsciously or consciously. Defaulting to whatever comes your way (indecision) or deliberately choosing to align what you love to what you do every day.

Stay BOLD, Keep Pursuing,

And wherever you are, keep smiling 🙂
