Finding time to do things or doing things to kill time?

What’s  your state on time?

(Maybe a time anxious person can better read my question)

  • Finding time to explore more things?
  • Doing something just to kill your time (maybe to escape from someother thing)?

    This is indeed a very contemplating statement.
    Sometimes we have time in abundance that we try finding ways to kill it. On the other hand it seems to be slipping from our hands when we have some very important and incomplete tasks left.
    That’s irony.
    time is precious however William Shakespeare has called it “sluttish”.

      Yes pragalbha… in fact yesterday had a small chat with my friend.. she was telling like she is into farming vegetables now for time pass, to escape from boredom and some life tensions… of course farming is good for health and mind.. but I was wondering actually hearing her answer…she wanted to kill time….of course that’s not my choice…as you said I find time to do things…

            I feel extremely sorry to hear that. Because I value you taking the time and also value having your comment on my post too much. Wp has been acting funny multiple times.

            I think, you need to check your hosting too.. not necessary that to be a we issue.
            Between was trying to say like if a weeping soul knows what is longing it won’t weep for ever

    Me too 🙂 I keep reminding myself – ‘Don’t be so greedy in this one lifetime, take a deep breath and let it all come’ I am just interested in too many things.

    After all you play many roles in your life. If I’m right you are a home maker, a wife, a mother , blogger and you live all beautiful relations of this world with utmost Beauty and grace.
    So, I can understand your efforts of stealing time.
    The best thing is that even when you don’t get time in abundance you do everything so perfectly that I think you might have killed time out of jealousy.

    Hmm..good question. I guess finding time to explore more things to satiate the hunger for learning more and more and more……

            Finding time to welcome new challenges, to look for new opportunities rather escaping from that

    It’s funny actually how our minds are working today. Look up my today’s post and you’ll know what I am talking about.
    Hint: I just know what you are trying to say through this post.

    Definitely the first one. But there have been times when I am guilty of doing just something to kill time too!

    I start watching the clock when I get into work so I know how much time is left in the day. I never used to do that. Time is valuable I think.

    Killing time? I don’t remember when was the last time I killed time. I am always running short of time so killing what little is left is not an option for me. But is it not nice to always have something to keep you engaged?
