This will suddenly make you realise that you have all the time in world.

As a working mum with 2 small children, I have always felt like a victim of time.

Time is scarce and it’s running away from me.

My daughter was down with a tummy big for the last 3 days. Although I chose to put work aside and spend that time with her, there was a gnawing thought at the back of my head that I am going to be so far behind my work schedule for the week.

I am over 40-years old with so many aspirations, dreams and goals, I have so much going on all the time, there are just not enough hours in the day to get everything done!

  • I am the time police who gets frustrated when things don’t go as planned with my time or if someone else is late
  • I need to rush everything I do and everywhere I go or it won’t happen
  • There are many things I want to do, I am constantly feeling a sense of urgency
  • There will never be enough time to do everything I want to do

I am constantly looking for ways to better manage my time. I’m in the peak of my life, and time is
