Thankful For Time

Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you.” – writer, Carl Sandburg

Today I am thankful for time.

As Carl Sandburg so eloquently put it in the above quote, only you can determine how your time is spent. The following is a top 10 list of what I am thankful to be able to spend my time on.

10. Time For Family –

As I wrote back in December, I am very blessed to have a great family. I am thankful for all of the time I get to spend with them.

9. Time to Play –

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Unlike Jack, I have enough time to play. So what is my excuse for being dull??

8. Time to Rhyme –

I might have just added this because it rhymes. Whatever the reason, I do have plenty of time to rhyme, which you can find here, here & here.

7. Time to Think, Laugh & Cry –

Former college basketball coach Jim Valvano said that if you think, laugh, & cry it makes for a heck of a day.  I don’t always do each of those every single day, but it is not because I lack the time.

6. Time to Create More Time –

Think you don’t have enough time to come up with your own top ten list? Think again. As my buddy Aaron Thuringer explained, we all have the opportunity to create more time for ourselves.

5. Time to Sleep –

I am very thankful for something I spend 1/3 of my life doing.

4. Time to Write –

I’m thankful to be able to spend time writing in this blog.

3. Time to Give –

One of the best things we can do with our time is to give some of it away. Through volunteering and other programs, much of our time best spent is time spent on others.

2. Time to Learn –

I am not an expert at anything. I am thankful to have time to learn many of life’s lessons.

1. Time to be Thankful –

I get time to remember all the things I have to be thankful for. And that makes me very thankful.
