It’s such a cliché, “Take the time to…” but have you ever really tried to take time for something? I don’t know if it’s just me but I seem to have a hard time being able to take time for much of anything I really want. Between work, attending to the wants of a wife, transporting my step-daughter and her children until she gets her car, it seems nearly impossible to actually do something. I get the inspiration to do something and as I get myself ready, the phone rings and the all too familiar “Can you do me a favor?” is heard. I realize that it is my choice whether to say yes or no but the consequence of denying a favor to whoever may be more sufferable than just getting it over with. I do know that I have an abundance of stored ideas that when the time is right will flow out of me like a broken fire hydrant. Until then I will keep looking for the positive aspect of every situation and take what time I can.
