Heartwings Love Notes 851 - Save time or spend it?

Heartwings says, “What is more precious, time or money?”

The readjustment we all go through every spring and fall is fast approaching. Stephen rejoices because he feels the hour stolen from
him in the spring is being returned. What I notice is that my timing is off by a little, and all of a sudden I have an hour less of daylight
to use for anything I might have planned. Plus mealtimes are disjointed for a while. Stephen is resentful that "W" took three more
weeks from standard time and tacked it onto daylight savings. He can be quite vocal about it.

What is daylight savings? It's not as though we can bank any of the minutes or hours we might wish to "save." When I spend time,
it's not as though I take it out of my wallet and plunk it down on a counter. Time is slippery stuff and my experience with it is that
there are times when it speeds by and times when it drags yet it's all the same objective time. Ever notice that from a subjective
standpoint, going somewhere seems to take more time than returning home? Yet the amount of miles traveled as well as the
minutes or hours spent remains the same.

Unfortunately for Stephen's feelings, my habit has always been to try to pack as much as I can do into whatever time I have. Much
to his annoyance because he prefers to be early, I also have a tendency to try to do more than is reasonable in whatever time there
is before we leave. Or else I plan too much for what is realistic and then regret what I have to leave undone. To me time is more
precious than money. It is possible to save or spend cash to one's satisfaction, however that cannot be said about time, which
despite our illusions to the contrary, we cannot actually control.

Regardless how true this may be, I seem unable to avoid finding one last thing to do before the allotted time is up. Why this is I am
not sure. I do believe it is a habit that would be better broken than continued. Meanwhile I will work at this the best way I know how.

May you find good ways to combat bad habits.
