Wow…more time on my hands. What would I do? I know of some other people with IBD that will love this post because they are limited to what they can do at the moment because of their disease. I however am not in that place right now. That doesn’t mean I don’t wish I had more time in the day.
So what would I do? Well, first I spend so much time right now working on this blog. It takes up not just time but energy. An extra hour would be great to help focus more on my words to get them right. I am usually distracted because I have the TV on or the wife is wanting some household chore done or something in life is just getting in the way. More time means…more time.
I would also like to do more volunteer work for the IBD community. I want to help with CCFA more. Because of transportation issues, any office is too far. The NYC office is close but I rely on mass transit so it takes forever to get home. New Jerseys office is just too far of a drive at this time. I don’t want to spend the gas. More time in the day would give me the time to spend for travel so I can help out more.
More time in the day would also mean more time with my loved ones. I can spend more time with my wife. There is nothing better than having more time with the person who you love. In life we never spend enough time telling someone how much we care about them. This extra time would help with that.
And then there is my online family. Facebook, Twitter…I love you all but don’t have enough time and sometimes energy to write to everyone. I wish I had an extra hour or two to connect with my IBD family to see how everyone is doing and help out where I can.
Even now, as I end this blog I wish I had more time. But reality is 24 hours. So let’s start the day.
