Time Is Not The Same As CapacityMarch 31, 2020
Having time is not the same as having capacity.
That thought has been running through my brain since morning.
You see, yesterday I spent the day playing a video game all day, then a board game, and some Netflix.
I’ve never had a day like that before in my life.
So when I woke today, and saw the laundry that still needed doing, and an orange ring beginning to form in the toilet, I felt pangs of guilt.
“I had so much time to do these things and I wasted it” was my thought.
Because I always feel like that’s why I can’t stay on top of things. I simply don’t have time.
But that isn’t true.
I do have time.
I have ability, too.
I just don’t have capacity.
Emotionally or physically, doesn’t matter which or why.
I’m losing sleep.
And I’m balancing the best I can.
So I played video games.
I got up today and began work.
I washed my hair, threw in a load of laundry before I grabbed my coffee.
For I might have all the time, I may have the ability, but I do not have all the capacity.
And that’s ok.
