Time is short, and we don’t ever know how short it is until we have to face it head on. We try try try to do our best but there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to achieve all that we wish for. Either that or we just don’t realise how precious time is and how quickly it can be gone – leaving you wishing that you had learned to deal, come to terms, made amends, bit the bullet, overcome your fears, walked your talk and generally just lived your life authentically. This is totally real at the moment because it is already February and 2013 has not gotten off on a great foot! Why? Well lets see…

Injured shoulder, thus cancelled triathlon.  Tick tock.

Scary results on Mr O.A.’s blood results. Tick tock.

Awaiting more urgent tests for him. Tick, tock.

Mr O-A get sicker (not normal for him). Tick tock.

Sick and/or dying relatives. Tick tock.

Family issues & relationship breakdowns. Tick tock.

Almost half our state floods. Tick tock.

I do realise that things could always be worse though, and realise that I have much to be grateful for…

I have an amazing husband whom I adore and cherish forever. Tick tock.

I have two beautiful children that enlighten all my days. Tick tock.

I have an amazing job that gives me great satisfaction. Tick tock.

I am the healthiest and fittest I have ever been. Tick tock.

I live in the most amazing place in the world. Tick tock.

Tick tock. Tick tock. Tick tock. How on earth do we manage each day to fit everything in a short 24 hours? How do we try to balance and nurture all of these aspects of our life?

We plan. Tick tock.

We set goals. Tick tock.

We prioritise. Tick tock.

We map out where we want to go, what we want to achieve, and how the hell we are going to get there…..and we pray really hard that God will be there to guide each of our steps so we don’t fall over a cliff or something in the process!

  1. All the time I was reading this, “What You Waiting For” aka Tick Tock by Gwen Stefani was playing in my mind. Gwen sings “Take a chance ’cause you might grow”. good advice! Unless we take chances we never try anything new. I havn’t yet put anything ‘new’ on my years list of goals but I will come up with something because to quote Gwen again “life is short you’re capable” Yeah!! she also sings “you’re a super hot female” is she talking ’bout me? lol!!

    You have your goals well and truly sorted Tam and I am sure you will achieve them ’cause you are awesome!!
