monday motivation: find the time.

Posted on Aug 15, 2011 in Motivation

Catching up on what you missed this weekend?

I’d once heard a small business owner explain that starting a business was a full-time job on its own. And most people do it while they have a day job. I thought that was such a crazy concept, why would someone want to work two full-time jobs? When would they have time to make friendship bracelets? Or go on hikes? Or watch Jersey Shore? But then I started blogging and realized, that if you really, truly want something, you make time for it. If you would have told me a year ago I’d be devoting 30-40 hours a week on something that wasn’t my job, I’d tell you you were crazy! But here I am. And loving it.

This quote applies to all areas of your life. You say you really want to eat better but don’t have time. But do you have time for Facebook? You say you want to workout but can’t get to the gym. But you found time for the most recent terrible SyFy movie? If it is important, you’ll find the time.

Like this quote? Head on over to Etsy and pick one up for your walls. Today only, if you use the coupon code 081511DEAL50, you’ll get half off of any print!


Do you say “I’m too busy” a lot? Is it the truth?

  1. This is something I need to tell myself over and over again. I always forget to make time for things I really want to do. I know I can do it!

    • Yeah, I was thinking about getting a print of this one for my desk at home. So often I’m like, “WAH WAH WAH I never have time to read!” But I complain about it in a Tweet or something. I just need to DO it.

  2. I found your blog on Stumble and am absolutely in love. I adore your outlook on life, and I’m having a ball checking out your photos and recipes!

    I haven’t gotten far enough to know whether you’re a full-time freelancer or not, but I am, and I’m feeling your post today. A lot of the time, the articles or projects I love the most are the ones I do for free or for less than my going rate… but I do them anyway, because I love them! My parents and friends have a very hard time wrapping their heads around it, but it’s what I love. I’m glad that your blog brings you so much joy… I’m very happy to have discovered it!

    • I guess it depends on your definition of “full time freelancer”. If you mean do I do that for 40 hours a week? Yes. Do you mean as in that’s my only job? No. I also work full time for a university doing graphic design. :)
      Thanks for reading! :D
