Two years ago, when we created this website, we created a blog page. Excited by the possibilities, we couldn't wait to blog ourselves silly! And two years later? Nothing. Nada. Blogless.
I've heard myself say it over and over again, "When I have more time..." Well, I've finally come to the realization that the gift of more time is not going to magically appear out of thin air. The day is 24 hours long. That's 1440 minutes in a day, if my math is right. (Full disclosure: math is not my strongest subject). Surely I can find 20 of those minutes to blog, right?
Who needs six hours of sleep each night anyway. I'm sure I'll function just as well on five hours and forty minutes. And maybe I'll sleep more peacefully knowing I've blogged.
The "I don't have enough time" mantra I've been living is impacting my photography too. Driving home last night, I was bubbling with great ideas -- "When I get home, the sun will be setting. Oooh, maybe the deer I spotted earlier will still be in my yard." The deer. The sunset. In my mind, it was breathtaking.
In reality, when I finally arrived home, I trudged up the steps, opened the door, threw down my bags, kicked off my shoes and plopped onto the sofa, where I would remain until it was time for bed.
What things would we do if we stopped putting things off? If instead of finding excuses not to do something, what if instead, we jumped right in? What if we captured the sunsets and the breathtaking sights all around us that are there every day, just ours for the taking?
Oh well. I'll think about it tomorrow. When I have more time.
