Spend Time and Money on Favourite People and Things

Where has the time gone? Your days are full of back to back meetings, appointments and commitments. Time to rest and relax is becoming more and more of a precious commodity. Days and weeks seem to fly by with greater speed. 

Where has the money gone? The amount of money flowing out is exceeding the amount that is coming in. You are working more hours than ever and have less money to show for your efforts. You always seem to be rushing to do the next thing or be at the next commitment.

When was the last time you stopped and honestly asked yourself the following question: How are you spending your time and money?

When you check your calendar and your credit card statements, or, if you are really organized, a detailed list of your expenses, how much time and money do you spend on your favourite people and things?

You may find that you have really been spending your time and money on your favourite people and things. If this is the case, then give yourself a pat on the back and keep doing what you are doing.

If you find that you have wasted precious time on people who drag, drain and deplete you rather than your favourite people who support, strengthen and stimulate you then it’s time for a change. Between now and the holiday season, make a commitment to spend quality time with each of the individuals that are fortunate enough to be your favourite people.  

If you find that you have wasted money on “impulse purchases” or things that you have never really used or wanted, it’s time to sell, donate or give away these items. Between now and the holiday season, make sure that your home and office contain only your favourite things.

Have you ever noticed that you tend to wear only the favourite things in your wardrobe? Perhaps some of these items have drowned in the abundance of your closet. If so, it’s time to wear and enjoy them.

When was the last time you actually made a list of favourite things that you like to eat, drink, read, watch and listen to? Between now and the holiday season, treat yourself to a favourite snack or meal, a special coffee or drink, a book or e-reader, a DVD or theatre visit and a play or concert.

When you spend time and money on favourite people and things, you may find you have more time and money to spend and that you feel more consciously connected and conspicuously content.
