It snowed today in Washington. It was a good day to reflect on something other than my never-ending to-do list, so I pondered three things that people are often preoccupied with, time, money, and strength. When you’re young, you have plenty of time and strength but no money. This is my son’s case. When you’re in your prime years, you tend to have money and strength but no time. That’s me. When you’re in your twilight years, you have time and hopefully have money, but you often don’t have strength. That’s my grandmother, whom I visited in Montana a few weeks ago. She is in her mid-90’s and wheelchair-bound. It would be nice to have more of all three in order to enjoy life more. Sometimes we trade one or more of these for the other; for example, we sometimes pay someone to do a task for us to buy us some more time. Or we let our strength escape us because we are so focused on making money that we have no time for strength. Or we spend so much time on other pursuits that we end up broke and/or without strength. I think a balance between all three is best.
Blog Notes: I didn’t really have time to write this tonight, and it isn’t one of my finest entries, but I am determined to make time to blog. If we don’t take the time to do what we want to do that will help us enjoy life, what makes life worth living?
