In talking to other entrepreneurs I find that this is common. When business is good it is really really good and I barely have time to breathe. I am grateful for the work but a part of me longs for a little time off also. :-)
And then it comes. The time off arrives and the first couple of days I relax, enjoying the time. after a couple of days I begin to get restless wondering when and if more work will come my way. When I first started in business this is when my panic set in. I rushed around doing everything I could to bring in more business. I was so busy doing and doing. I set up new marketing campaigns, met with people, made phone calls and literally worked harder that during my "busy" season. I didn't enjoy the time off.
What I have learned is that when I can truly enjoy and be grateful for the gift of time I have received I move into what I call the flow. I am able to ride the waves, keeping my balance when I am on top and enjoying the ride when I am on the bottom. I have gratitude for 'what is' right now. This moment in time. After all isn't that all there really is?
Have you been given a gift of time lately? Are you enjoying it?
