"We all sorely complain of the shortness of time, and yet have much more than we know what to do with. Our lives are either spent in doing nothing at all, or in doing nothing to the purpose, or in doing nothing that we ought to do. We are always complaining that our days are few, and acting as though there would be no end to them."

Right?! How many Facebook statuses do we read that mention needing more hours in the day, needing time to slow down, or all the things that need to get done AND YET think of the time wasted in posting a status that says such things. What tasks could have been accomplished if I hadn't gotten caught up looking at my second-cousins-best-friends-aunts wedding pictures and posting a status about how busy I am?

That's embarrassing.


  1. Well sometimes we don't need to do something every minute of every day to be busy. I think the problem is that we procrastinate a lot so when we realised that the day has gone is when we panicked and wish there were more hours during the day. Somedays I have a hundred things to do and other days like today I have a lot of time on my hands and I can relax reading posts like this ;)

  2. Um once again-spot on. I really have plenty of time to do the things I need to do-sometimes I just get so caught up doing random unnecessary stuff!
