Find Time to Deepen Your Relationship with Time This Valentine’s Day!

Finding time to deepen our relationships is always time well spent – and what better day to focus on relationships than Valentine’s Day!

I’d like to invite you to do something a little bit different, and take a moment to reflect on how you relate to time this Valentine’s Day.  Do you approach it as a friend in your life’s journey?  A difficult, sometimes cranky and critical relative?  An enemy?

For many, I think the latter is the case, and time becomes an entity that we are in perennial struggle with.  And yet, I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way.  Not at all!

We each can choose how we relate to time – and how we frame that relationship will, in turn, affect everything else in our lives. Indeed, HeartBased Time Management is about learning to redefine our relationships to Time, Meaning, Money … and ourselves!

Here’s a passage from a recent interview that Michelle of Taming Time recently did with me.  We discussed how important and basic one’s relationship with time is:

“The way you use your time is the way you live your life.” I certainly apply that to myself and to my own unique relationship with time.

I know, in the core of my being, that time is finite and concrete, and that on some level, every choice that I make is a time choice. Every single time choice that I make, no matter how small or large it may seem, shapes my relationship with time. In the same way that the quality of one’s personal relationships is shaped by the quality of choice that one brings to them, so, too, the quality of the energy one brings to making time choices affects one’s relationship with time (and therefore with life)!

I am in a constant process of looking at this, and developing ever deepening self-intimacy as I do! My relationship with time becomes increasingly organic and internal, and I am better able to place myself in the moment, being fully present, and feeling and expressing gratitude for my environment, my choices, and my life.

It’s an ever-expanding process of going deeper, and seeing the ripples move out, through time!
