Thank you for visiting my blog today, I truly appreciate your visit.
I was awake last night thinking about choices, and math. I was thinking how little things add up. The coffee breaks I spent with co-workers added up to many hours of time I look back on with appreciation. Looking back I realize those were special gifts to have such amazing friends.
I was also thinking how forty years ago when we were just starting out how careful we were with our spending. I always brought my lunch and even brought tea bags from home and paid 5 cents for hot water so I could have a tea on the rare occasion I didn’t go walking on my coffee breaks.
When we first married we didn’t have a television and our time was spent reading, walking, and doing things. We never felt deprived.
But I was thinking about choices; how important daily choices are. They are important because those small choices compound. They can mean choices we feel grateful about or they can become choices we regret.
It’s so easy to be wasteful, with our time and with our money.
Daily choices, a few dollars here and a half hour there and I can fritter away my day, my week and my money. Fortunately I have thrifty genes although I need to be more careful with my time. I am shocked how much time I spend on social media.
In 2020 internet usage worldwide has grown to 145 minutes per day (over 2 hours!) on social media. I know that surprises me to think how that time usage added up. Link to reference
145 minutes a day is 4720 hours in five years. Imagine if that time was spent differently – what could I/we do or learn?
I decided to do some calculations and share them today.
What time and money will I look back on in one year or five and wish I had spent differently? What choices will I wish I had made? and you?
I decided to end this post by sharing some photos from autumn walks. I wish you a wonderful day.
Sincere thanks for visiting today, I look forward to your feedback. _ David
