Time is my friend. I work with it, enjoy it, respect it, and make the best of it.

While I have an abundance of time in my life, I choose to both enjoy and respect this wonderful gift.

I have so much I want to accomplish and, by planning carefully, I can ensure that I have the time to do everything I desire.

Thinking of time as an hourglass is not representative of the way I view time. Instead, I imagine all of the sands of time spread throughout an enormous desert. I can see time extend in every direction. I know that I have the time to accomplish everything I desire.

I place priorities on the goals in my life. The things I most want to accomplish are given my attention first. This allows me to make sure I have the time to do the things that are most dear to me.

Certain tasks in my life may need to be completed in a limited time frame and I accept that. I give myself deadlines and I stick to them. This ensures that I do not waste my valuable time.

When I work with time and respect it, I have the ability to balance my life. Giving myself the time to pursue my personal desires, to fulfill my work responsibilities, and to devote attention to my family are important uses of my time. Learning how to balance my time is important.

I am thankful to have found a friendship with time. By making the most of the time I am given, I am able to make the best life for my loved ones and myself.
