I’m not talking about money. I’m talking about time. We all have 24 hours given to us every day. Are you investing in things you believe in or are you just spending your time? I am a strong believer in investing.
If you have been around my blog for a while then you know I volunteer as the President of a local Children’s Theatre in my community. This takes a CRAZY amount of my time. I also facilitate a support group for parents of children on the autism spectrum and ADHD. I also this year chose to give up one of my time investments, the PTO at my children’s school. I couldn’t do everything and had to find what best fits me.
Both of these projects are things that I care passionately about. Don’t get me wrong, I sometimes feel stressed and pulled in 80 directions. I even complain, but I still go. I still work like crazy and feel great joy when things go right.
My pastor this weekend preached about how you invest your time. He encouraged people to evaluate if they were investing or spending. He encouraged people to pray about where they feel God is leading them. He encouraged people to ACT, and follow up–to get involved.
I am surrounded by many people that are investing their time in many different ways. Our world is an amazing place due to all of the “investments” of others. So are you investing or spending?
