Use your time wisely, you can’t buy it back.

Trading time for money is what we do to feed and shelter our families. Often, we trade so much time that we feel we have no time for our families and ourselves.

That feeling can lead to rounds of retail therapy to make ourselves feel better about the time we don’t have. And then the vicious cycle repeats.

Some people realize the value of time early and adapt their lives to prioritize time. Others, like me, take much longer to come to this realization.

When you stop spending time to make money to spend on stuff that does not bring joy to your life, you are free to spend your time on people and things that you value more.
