This week, our Sunday Scribblings prompt is Time. If you decide to write a post based on this week’s prompt, be sure to go back here and share your link so everyone can see how you interpreted things! Here’s what I did with it…
Time is a funny thing. While it is considered to be one of our most precious commodities, we so often are guilty of just wasting it. I know I can’t be the only one that does that.
How much could I have accomplished during all that time I spent in my apartment during lockdown? I had gotten a keyboard just before COVID hit. Did I teach myself how to play it during all that time? Nope. How many books did I promise myself I would read and did I read any of them? Not many. And then there’s the writing… If I’d really put my mind to it, I’m sure I could have gotten around to finally writing that novel I’ve always wanted to write. But did I? Nope.
All that valuable time… gone. All that time was a gift… wasted.
So here’s what I’d like to do in 2021… I’d like to make a promise to myself that I won’t waste the time I’m given. I want the hours of my days to be productive. I want to do the things I’ve been wanting to do while I have the time to do them. Here’s hoping I have the discipline to follow through this year.
Thanks to everyone who participated this week and shared your links! Please visit their blogs, give them a follow, and take a look at how they interpreted the prompt.
