#5 time vs currency is my perpetual quandry. I totally get that time is finite, but I need to be more mindful of every moment…..yet, I’m trying.

It’s hard at times! I think we just have to work on it as time passes and hopefully get better at it ;) I know some weeks I’m REALLY good, and others I work so much I lose out on entire months… all a work in progress.
