Reclaiming Wasted Time

Monday, January 06, 2020

Wasted Days and Wasted Nights...that single line from an old tune by Freddy Fender plays back over and over in my mind as if I was playing a broken record.

Although the song is about spending all his free time thinking about and focusing on a girl who left him and wasn’t faithful, I can sure see where this also pertains to my life of wasted days and wasted nights.

I have so much to do and so much I could be accomplishing. Instead I waste the days and stay up late wasting nights being unfaithful in other areas of my life. Such as housework, exercise time, food prepping and getting into the word more. I’d like to reclaim my wasted time. I’d like to tell you what I do with all those wasted minutes, hours, days...except there’s nothing to tell because in a sense I’m doing nothing, nothing succesful anyway. Too much time watching shows or searching useless information or waiting for messages or other stuff that’s just not important. Pushing buttons over and over as if I’m George Jetson in the cartoon ‘The Jetsons’.

It hasn’t always been this way, I’ve just lost my way somewhere.

It’s time to put some action steps into place and leave those wasted days and nights behind. There is so much to accomplish. As I sit here making my list of today’s new action steps, you can bet Freddy Fenders Wasted Days and Wasted Nights will be playing in the background!

Happy Monday Sparkers! Make it a good one!

    Sometimes some down time doing nothing is just what you need. Like so much else, it's a matter of balance.

    A list helps. Then you can check things off, starting with “make a list.”
