Ryan McLean : Slightly Unconventional

Finding The Time For Life

You know that things are a little out of control when you start thinking “I wish there was 30 hours in the day…not 24” or you find yourself contemplating cutting out a couple of hours of sleep just so you can fit more life in. That is kind of where I have been at lately.

It isn’t that I don’t have enough time in the day, because I know I do.

It also isn’t because I am super duper busy, because really I’m not.

I think it might come down to the fact that I am young and don’t really know what I want thus I don’t really know what to go after and what to spend my time on. So I go to work, I spend time with my family and I do the other basics, and even though I am having a great time I feel like it could be better. My problem is that because I’m not exactly aiming for anything really clear except stuff like “Be a good Dad” that I tend to just let me hours allocate themselves and I throw structure out the window.

Sometimes that lack of structure makes you feel like you’re not in control…I don’t like feeling like I’m not in control.

Sure, I can go ahead and blame this on children, saying they make your life hectic (which is true), but if I really wanted a structured time schedule doing things that I feel are productive then I know I could achieve that within the limitations of having a family.

So I don’t really have a solution to my problem just as of yet, but until today I wasn’t even aware that I felt the way I felt about my time schedule. So now that I am aware of it I am sure something will change.

    totally get this… it’s a good thought, a good thing to become aware of.

    busy for the sake of satisfying the drive that you SHOULD be busy is a curse of thinking that most never break out of
