It is a beautiful morning in Oxford and I am pottering around exploring the city like a tourist, taking photos for you and buying decaf tea from tiny little street cafes. The Sun is beating down and the breeze is just cold enough to express it’s welcoming warmth. I like such days and why not, what is not to like?
I’m sat solitary in a park and looking at people, running, cycling, dog walking or just two lovers holding hands and chatting about life and the important things;this is one of my favourite things, people watching, but I hardly get time to do it except when we arrive early at airports or when I’m having a coffee on the street cafes of London after a long day of shopping.
I’m thinking, between work and life, the hours we have for ourselves are so few, what do we really want to do with them? Weekdays are spent making ‘to do’ lists and weekends, oh more of those!
So this kind of time, this sat alone in the park kinds I do really appreciate.Thinking about the things I want to and let the world fall away without me worrying to join in. I’m taking time to think what I really want to do and I mean tomorrow when I wake up or next week or this month before another month slips away or this year before I get another year older. So many things and so many choices that inevitably follow abundance and then there is another kind of abundance, the one of reasons that we create for ourselves, the ones that keep us from chasing things we know we must do or we deserve. From losing weight, to running more, to my next promotion, to taking my blog to the next level, to earning more money, to buying that expensive chanel handbag, everything is linked, everything can be done and so as I get up to walk a bit further down the park I say to myself ‘if I can make anything, I’ll make time not excuses’.
