'All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us'.

(Photo taken in Perth, Australia on our honeymoon)

As I sit here snowed in (with a little cabin fever) and knowing I have so much space this week to sit, think, create & inspire I'm thinking of some of the things I want to make time for while I have this opportunity of free time. What will I do with it? 
I found an inspiring pinboard on pinterest reminding me what is important to make time for so I thought I'd share a few of them here with you. 

Make time to read. I touched on this in a previous post as something I want to do more of this year. I think instead of making my lunch & sitting down to an episode of something we've recorded on the box I'll read a chapter of my current book.

Make time to create & paint my dreams. I did a little of this today. I've written down some craft projects I want to work on in the next few weeks which I will share with you to keep myself accountable & maybe get you creating yourselves! I also want to find the time to learn a new craft but I have so many projects I'm in the middle of it's hard to prioritize that.

Make time to have coffee with a friend. I really need to do this more often & now I can find more exciting places to go a little further afield with my new driving license! Plus, I feel like I've become a recluse (honest moment) in the last few weeks! I really do love my own space & company sometimes but now it's time to get out of that bubble, leave my home (although it's difficult in the snow) & see people I love!
Make time to write a letter. I am NOT a good phone person. I find it really awkward unless I'm really close to someone like my parents or best friend. I love writing too & I love that someone can have something to keep reading over & over. I have so many letters from past times that mean more to me & remind me of things more than any past phone calls I've had. Time to invest in some beautiful writing paper!

Make time to find somewhere special. This may not happen this week because I will not be driving around in this weather but I'd love to find a place I feel I can go to just for a change of scenery, a sense of peace, escape just to gather my thoughts, write notes or have quiet time with God.

What will you make time for this week?
