Do you revisit your schedule, prioritize and eliminate activities?
rope burningI like to pretend I have a time frame for that. My time comes when I’m at the end of the rope and it’s burning at both ends. One morning I slapped my forehead and said, “I don’t have to do all this. There is an easier way.”

I gave myself permission to take the time to organize, eliminate and refine one of my activities. I want more time to write, read books and crochet. Think about how much time we spend scrolling social networking. I can’t bear to watch television because the commercials bore me. I love entertainment, but even that I must limit how much Netflix to allow myself.

Mayo Clinic web site is my go to online resource for everything, even more so as I age. The experts take each body system to tell the reader what could happen. My concern is memory. “Memory tends to become less efficient with age. It might take longer to learn new things or remember familiar words or names.” My sister and I do a comedy act for each other. “Oh you know, it’s that thing that you use…” Twenty questions.

Times up, Meredith. Now you know why I prefer short posts.

  1. I just recently cancelled one of my addictions (online games) for time and funding constraints so I know how you feel. I am hoping the time and effort can be put towards getting my next three novels published in the next 18 months.
