I Used to Think “Free Time” Was a Joke Too– It’s Not

You have heard it said many times: we get one life. It’s not a new epiphany, but it’s true. One. That’s all we get. Do you really want to spend it all in the pursuit of someone else’s dream?

What about your dream? I know you have one. It whispers to you at night and makes your heart leap. But how? When?

In your free time. I used to laugh when people told me to fit me and my dreams in during my free time. That is, I would laugh with my soul crushed. Then somewhere along the way it clicked. I could get my time back. My time belongs to me. I own it. I am the master of my domain.

I needed to stop exchanging time for money. Think about that. You show up somewhere- precious hours of your day- and someone hands you money for showing up. That’s what is called trading time for money- and you only have so much time. When you look back on your life you are going to be shocked that you allowed someone to hand you twelve dollars for a precious hour of your time.

Time is a commodity. It is as valuable as health. You cannot buy it. You cannot bargain for more. You get what you get. To truly be empowered to move forward with your dream, you have to absorb this concept. If you are going to sell your time- it had better be worth it.

It took me a while to step out there, say no to what “looked” like the smart thing to do, and pursue my passion, but once I did I was hooked. I could not stop. I started working for me.  If you have a dream in your mind that is all the evidence you need to believe it can happen. I do not believe that God gives us dreams with no way to make them happen. Dreams just take work. They can feel unattainable, but they are not.

What is your dream? Write it down. Carry it with you. Look at it every day and start researching how you can make it happen. Because you can. You see dreams come true every day. It is time to start believing that yours can come true too.
