The Little Old Clock Watcher Me.
September 23, 2016 10:14am CST
For years and years and years I was a clock watcher. In the back of my mind I always seemed to have the phrase "Time is money" running through my head. It seemed that I was always on a schedule and in a rush to get things done. When I first retired I had a very hard time with my habit of clock watching. I couldn't seem to set this habit aside. Then I found out I needed an operation and I was basically pushed into trying to relax. You have no idea how slow time goes when you are trying to relax and you are still watching the clock. Slowly I am learning how to not clock watch. Believe me, I am now able to relax and not watch the clock. My days seem to speed by now. If I do take the opportunity to look at the time it is amazing to me how much has gone by. Are you a clock watcher? Image from:pixabay.com/en/time-is-money-coins-currency-euro-1601978/

I guess I'm a clock watcher in the sense that I want to be on time and I value my time and the time of others. I make full use of whatever time I have. In the same vein, I stare blankly into space when I wake up during my days off. I think this is what is called balance.

I am especially when I am at working. I am always watching the clock to see how much longer I get until I can head home. Then when I am home I am watching the clock to see when I have to go to bed to get enough sleep for work. I wake up many times through the night just to see what time it is and then then cycle begins again.
