A Little Bit Of Time Goes A Long Way

My wife woke up around 2 am this morning. Myself just a couple of hours later.

“This jet lag is getting harder to deal with” I said to her. We laughed a little, shared some posts we saw on Facebook. Talked about what we might do later if we don’t fall asleep.

We decided to grab a little breakfast. As I sat at the table, I watched my wife whip up a cup of coffee for both of us. My favourite beverage of the day. I just sat in my chair watching her, smiling, enjoying the moment. Talking with her, laughing about whatever came across our minds.

It’s the little things that count. A little bit of time with the one I love. Just a little bit of time goes a long way.

Where Does The Time Go?

Just the other day, I decided to take a break from a long day and look through some of my social media and email accounts. While I was quickly swiping through a few posts and messages I noticed that the email account that handles my blog was flooded with unread emails.

I couldn’t believe my eyes. How could this have happened? I logged into my blog and noticed that the last time I had posted was over 4 months ago. I even checked my online reviews and was surprised with the same result. I looked away from my phone and just stared out the window. I found myself trying to recollect what I have been doing for the past 4 months and piece together why I have neglected my food blog.

It all came down to time. Not enough time (and partly lack of motivation). After a series of family outings and events, holidays, and daily work life pretty much consumed all of my time. It’s hard to say how much of my time was devoted to everything I do on a daily basis, I just know that everything I have done up to now has taken up my time. But I am very happy that my time was spent with family and friends who I care for. At the end of the day, that is what counts the most.

Perhaps I can get to writing one or two reviews/posts per week. For now, I am changing the way how I will post anything into my blog and social media accounts. In the meantime, I’m happy with what I have done and how I will spend my time in the near future.

I hope all of you have spent your time as well as I have.
