Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful for fear you let other people spend it for you. Carl Sandburg

Choose your own priorities.  We often drift through days that are full of things we “have to do” or “should do” or what others “want us to do.”  Why?  There are plenty of people out there more than willing to put in their two cents about your time.  Every day, you’ll hear sales pitches about the endless options you have and other people’s opinion of what should be important to you.  Have they got their own lives in such perfect order that it qualifies them to make decisions for yours?  Like any purchase, it’s valuable to listen but keep that coin in your pocket till YOU decide where it will be spent.  Try to see the difference between a real obligation and an imagined one.  The only things you have to do are the obligations you choose.  You might find that more is optional than you really think.
