Free time

Lately, I've been finding myself having less free time and realizing that this free time will steadily decrease as I get older. This wasn't a very pleasant thing to realize really. However, whilst I was realizing this, I also realized that I will still have some free time. There'll always be some time that I can have where I don't have anything that I need to do. There will probably be lots of things I want to do.

As part of this realization/changing in my life, I think I've learnt to tell the difference between what I want to do and what I need to do. I used to complain about not having any free time if I could hardly be on the internet in a day, or hardly watch tv or whatever. But now I'm trying to teach myself that those times when I've been with my friends all day aren't a loss of free time, they're just a different way of spending it. I've realized that I can go a day without tumblr or youtube and still be happy that I've had a good day because I've been with the people who are most special to me.

Sure, I'd love to have time to do everything I want, I'd love to be able to live like I don't have anything I need to do. But that's not possible, and it's not going to be possible much for a long time. So I have to appreciate and be thankful for all the free time I do have. I'm learning to know when I have time to spend on whatever I want and to spend it wisely.
