Time

It’s the most previous gift yet we never really seem to know how to use it. 

I’m sitting here riveted by my Facebook newsfeed. Alarmed that I can’t peel away from my twitter feed. Bored to tears wondering what I’m going to do tonight. 
It’s a weird thing, time. When we need it we can’t get enough and when we have it, we can’t seem to figure out what to do with it. 
Think about that for a moment. What would you do with more time? 
If I were to give you $60 bucks I’m pretty sure you could come up with something to do with it. I know I could.  Yet I can’t think if the best way to use the next 60 seconds, much less the next 60 minutes or 60 hours. 
So instead I look back at the last 60 hours. For once I’m proud. I did a few things for myself in those moments. They were full of some hard praying. And, I even gave a few away. 
There are times I wish I knew how to be selfish. That I could just steal away moments for myself. That I could wonder beyond the uncertainty of tomorrow and live in this moment. The one right now. This one, right here. 
Geez Louise!
