Time | The Battle for You

by Cindy Ratzlaff

For me, the gift of time is the hardest gift to give myself.  My boss is a horrible task master (I own my own business).

I’m going to try to give myself this gift for the next three days. I’ve delegated responsibilities for some important work that needs to be done in my absence and I’m going to trust that I’ve gathered the right people around me to do those tasks.

This is so hard for me.  I think I’m the only one that can certain things.  Of course, this isn’t true but somehow I’ve built a myth for myself that keeps me a prisoner and denies me that precious “time” that I long for. Thinking that I’m the only one who can do something is really a form of low self-esteem. It’s me thinking I can’t set a plan in motion that will succeed without my constant supervision.

What a silly cycle I’ve created.  In the battle for me, things need to change and that change starts today.  I’ll post pictures later, but for today, my time will be spent on a beach, quietly meditating on the surf.  I’m worthy of the gift.  So sayeth the Queen.

How do you give yourself the gift of time and what do you like to do best with your time?

    The beach is the best place to relax..I offer myself to my higher power and turn all my problems over to the ocean while I stand in it…it is the best feeling. I then ask for all of my mistakes to be washed away. So simple and it is so refreshing. I have been to NH this past weekend and it has been hard to go back to work in my mind..enjoy.

    Thank you Liz. I’m taking a lunch break from the beach and checking in, so clearly I’m not totally able to disengage BUT I love this site, so it’s not work.

    The beach is my place to read for pleasure. I read so much each week for work that it’s a great joy to read just for fun!
