In one single day, my time was thoroughly wasted ...for over 6 hours!
Waste of Time#1 Pointless morning class for 3 hours: I got up early and rushed myself to class, only to be bored out of my mind while we super slowly learned about muscle testing.
Waste of Time #2 Standing in line at the DMV, with no service, for 1 hour: I trekked very far from home on the Subway in order to renew my Driver's License. After waiting 1 hour, the receptionist to me there was a problem with the server and that they couldn't renew my license that day, meaning I'd have to travel all this way another day to have it renewed.
Waste of Time #3 Super slow and boring yoga class, for 1 hour: I packed up my yoga supplies and headed to the studio, paid the class fee, and then proceeded to complete the slowest yoga class I have ever done. I was bored in the class things were moving so slowly. It was a different teacher than normal and unfortunately I didn't think the class was worth my money.
During this one day, I was sure getting fed-up with all of these "wastes of time". But luckily, despite my negative state, I was able to reflect and decided that maybe this was the type of day that I needed. Maybe I needed a slow day, a day full of opportunities to reflect, slow down, and be left in my own thoughts...?
Furthermore, everyday at school I learn about disease, death, and disorder. I am constantly reminded that every living and healthy day is a beautiful thing. As such, I am learning that even wasted moments should be celebrated and appreciated.
Hope your day is full of precious moments, even those that feel wasted!
