no time

Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently.
Ξέρεις τι; Θα ήθελα να ξαπλώνουμε στο κρεββάτι, εσύ να κοιμάσαι πάνω στο στήθος μου&εγώ να διαβάζω τα δικά μου, κάποιο μεσημέρι, κάποιου καλοκαιριού, τότε που η ζέστη λιώνει τους δείκτες των ρολογιών&οι ώρες περνάνε απαρατήρητες.
—  Jolly Roger

“ There’s no such thing as a painless lesson. They just don’t exist. Sacrifices are necessary. You can’t gain anything without losing something first although if you can endure that pain and walk away from it, you’ll find that you now have a heart strong enough to overcome any obstacle. Yeah, a heart made fullmetal. ”
