You have had your time to be all of those younger ages. Now it’s your time to be this age – embrace it.
“If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that” ~ Stephen King
“When we’re forced to do something, suddenly the time is there. Which means it’s there all the time, but we’ve just chosen to limit ourselves by believing that it isn’t. Ever notice how if you’ve got six months to do something, it’ll take you six months to do it, but if you have a week, it’ll take you a week? Once you understand that time, like the rest of your reality, is in your mind, you can make it work for you instead of being its slave.” ~ Jen Sincero, You Are a Badass
“It never ceases to amaze me the precious time we spend chasing the squirrels around our brains, playing out our dramas, worrying about unwanted facial hair, seeking adoration, justifying our actions, complaining about slow Internet connections, dissecting the lives of idiots, when we are sitting in the middle of a full-blown miracle that is happening right here, right now.” ~ Jen Sincero, You Are a Badass
