If I had a superpower, it would be to make more time. As a mom, it seems there are never enough minutes in the day to get the laundry done, the homework finished, the closets cleaned out or that gourmet dinner made. The to-do list manages to grow, not shrink, though my day is spent crossing things off. I often find I’ll lay my head down at night and say…”I’ll get to it tomorrow.”
During the summer, I find that I approach time very differently. This time of year I focus less on time management and more on time maximization. I am keenly aware that these days at camp are limited, and I want to make every single minute count.
Time is your most precious resource; make every minute count.
I love that camp has a way of slowing us down, helping us enjoy the little things that we might miss in the busyness of normal life - searching for tadpoles in the creek, sharing a laugh with a friend or dancing for no reason at all. At camp, the only sure thing is the moment before us so we choose to maximize our minutes.
Today, I loved the way our cabins were embracing every minute of sunshine and fun in their day! The energy and participation was high, and the spirit of Camp Highlander was contagious. We talked of the rain coming our way “at some point today” during breakfast, and these campers set out for adventures, making every minute count. Today there were no regrets, no missed opportunities, just magical moments that have us laying our heads on our pillow saying “let’s do it all again tomorrow!”
