En Lee Zman

That's Hebrew.

It's the first line in a great Hebrew saying I heard last week that has been turning over in my head daily:

En lee zman lebazbez zman.
I don't have time to waste time.
Isn't it great? It even sounds good in English. And it's so true.

Maybe it's because my birthday is coming up in about a month, or maybe it's because I'm still trying to Live Each Day. But, I'm really realizing that I just don't have time to waste time.
Here's a gentle reminder that every day we have on this Earth is an unbelievable gift. Our little speck of a soul, on this little speck of a planet that was just lucky enough to be the perfect distance from the sun to support life - within our little speck of a spiraling galaxy in an infinite universe.

Let's love ourselves.
Let's remember that we are all butterflies, and can transform what we don't like in our lives anytime we choose to. Yes, you REALLY REALLY can. It IS a choice.

Let's remember to not waste our time. What that means to you will be totally different from the next person. We don't want to be wasteful with water, Earth's resources, and most of all - our time. Do what brings you meaning, joy, and love.
