Not Enough Time 🕒 

  

Time may or may not be the most precious asset we possess. (If you’re scrambling to pay your mortgage or trying to figure out how to afford college, you can probably build a pretty solid case in favor of money.) But time is unique among our commodities.
Every day, every person who draws breath on this earth receives the same amount of time: 24 hours, 1,440 minutes, or 86,400 seconds, depending on which denomination you prefer.
At the end of every day, every person’s allotment is depleted. Time cannot be rolled over or stockpiled. When it’s gone, it’s gone.
Time cannot be stolen or transferred into another account. Its market cannot be cornered. The rich cannot get richer, where time is concerned. Its system cannot be gamed, hacked, or tampered with.
Time cannot be exchanged or refunded.
Time is extremely limited—yet insanely in demand. Think of the things that are competing for hours—or even a few minutes—of your time.
Your job.
Your overtime demands and opportunities.

  

Your commute.
Your workout.
Your responsibilities as a friend, neighbor, church member, and concerned citizen.
Your kids’ practices, games, recitals, and programs.
Your hobbies and pastimes.
Your body’s requirements for sleep and relaxation.
So many options, so little time to explore them all.
No one understands that truth better than a person whose primary love language is Quality Time.
If you’re married to a native Quality Time speaker, you should feel at least a little flattered. Your wife isn’t looking for Words of Affirmation or Gifts or Acts of Service. She just wants you. She will experience love and affection—she will feel genuinely cared for—simply by sharing some of your precious time. A half hour here, an hour there, or a weekend on occasion is enough to keep her love tank filled.

  
Provided it’s the right kind of time.
