Magical Moment 401, "The Lost Hour"

"Don't count every hour in the day, 
make every hour in the day count."

My head is spinning lately with too many projects and not enough time to devote to them. Work, family visiting, a show to prepare for, life altering decisions to make, recording music...ah! As if 24 hours in a day weren't few enough, Sunday I have only 23! 

I suppose I could stress, or complain about losing time. In fact I caught myself doing that today. While I was sitting on the couch. Watching an infomercial. Talk about lost hours. As soon as I realized it, I thought about the many other lost hours in past regular 24-hour days. Yikes. No daylight savings to blame there. 

Time is constant. It is myself who either squanders or makes it count. Maybe realizing the truth about lost hours, will help me find many more in the future.

I am the squanderer. Half the time, I think I let myself squander time out of fear that my puny efforts won't be "enough".

There's never enough.

But I CAN do what I can do. However little, however much.

Good post!

GREAT post!!!!!!
Oh I have had the same feelings and thoughts.
I am to blame far too many times about time slipping away on me....
I STILL do not like this "losing an hour thing" though:\
