How We Spend Our Time (#302)

It’s not a race.

There’s nothing you have to win.

This life isn’t meant to be a checklist of accomplishments. We only get so much time on this earth, please don’t spend it in anger or hatred. Let go of past transgressions. Let go of past mistakes. You’re in this moment only.

Spend your time with intent. Do meaningful work that makes you happy. Time to take care of yourself doesn’t hurt either.

Slow down. You’re doing great.
