Never Enough Time for Everything
a wise older friend recently said that there just isn't enough time to do everything we want to do in our lives. i often feel like there isn't enough time in a day or week to do everything that needs to be done, but when she said those words in the context of her entire life... it really zoomed home for me. and not in a good way. it's almost too overwhelming to think about, really. i mean, just battling the day-in-day-out defeat of not accomplishing all the work and play and personal fulfillment projects is bad enough... but to think that life ends too soon and the to-do list will never be entirely crossed out... ugh. makes me wonder where in the priority list exercise should be. because on the one hand, doing something like the 3 day melt workout takes time. and on the other hand, it keeps me healthy and living better longer. so, maybe that 30 minutes to an hour a day of exercise is the best thing i can do in a day.
