“If we do what is necessary, all the odds are in our favor.”
How you handle your moments can make the difference in the results. Like daylight savings time gains us an hour but it doesn’t add any more time to a day. Each of us still has the same 24 hours.
Daylight savings time has a few advantages: If you like gardening, you can spend more time doing that; if you are on a walking exercise regimen you would have more daylight; you definitely can plan more outdoor activities around having more hours of sunlight.
But I do have a complaint. . . This changing of time throws off my sleep pattern; I feel as if I’m running out of time; I always feel like I am behind trying to catch up; simply put, I feel like a round peg trying to fit in a square hole.
The question I ask: does anyone besides me feel this way with the advent of daylight savings time?
There are some things you can control and some you can’t, and that is one I would like to but it is out of my control. I have been working on this for the past few years, trying to figure out ways to be in harmony with daylight savings time.
What did I do?
I started a few days before, telling myself that this is temporary and it won’t last forever . . . that “Fall” will be here soon and that my season will come again. I even set my watch ahead one (1) hour a day before.
What was I attempting to do?
I decided to take control of what I knew was going to happen; so I prepared myself mentally to face it a few days early. Yes, I can report that it made the transition easier.
Is this how you feel sometimes about where you are in life and what you want to do? Do you feel rushed, or like you’re behind, or what you are working toward seems so far off? Are you taking control, or letting it control you?
Don’t answer too quickly.
Where you are now could be the result of either your desire to make something happen or you have decided to let change swallow you up. Nothing stays the same. We are getting better, or getting worse.
Complaining about daylight savings time won’t change it; I am affected by it no matter what.
So what is the first step? Recognize! Recognize! Accept that your mindset needs a shift; perhaps negative thoughts are clouding your possibilities. Or you are in such a rush to get something done; you can’t see the trees because you’re focused on the forest (what’s happening).
Whatever season you find yourself, make it work and refuse to QUIT. God does have a plan for your life and I believe that for you the best is yet to come.
