I answered this question already on the day it was posted but I kept thinking about it since then. Before I share more thoughts about it here is the answer I gave:
“I don’t waste time… At least I don’t consider the time being wasted… maybe others would. Some might say I waste time blogging. Some might say I waste time cleaning. Some might say I waste time homeschooling the kids, some might say I waste time going on walks with the dogs. It’s not wasted time for me. It all has its purpose.”
There are so many things that we label as a waste of time but for the person doing it it might actually be exactly what’s needed. Even binge watching a TV show.
Time is only wasted if you do something you really dislike doing. When I look back to the things I consider a waste of my time then they are most likely things I really didn’t like doing. Things that didn’t give me a good feeling, didn’t make me satisfied. Things that didn’t make me happy. It’s spending time with the wrong people doing the wrong things that I consider a waste of time. Like investing time in trying to please everyone. Or trying to fulfill expectations others have in you…
What are your thoughts?
