Time. On Purpose {A Link-Up}

by Edie Wadsworth on January 30, 2013

I am SO thankful and humbled by your response to my ebook. You are so generous and kind and I love you all. If you haven’t had a chance to purchase it, you can still get it for $5 here. Subscribe to my blog via email and receive my February newsletter here!

This year, I made a goal to live with more intention-—to find ways to spend my time, my money, and my gifts more wisely.

It’s so easy for us to fill our lives with so much stuff that we leave little room to serve others, to dream our dreams or to make art.

Seth Godin says in his new book, The Icarus Deception: How High Will You Fly?
:

“Art is the act of a human being doing generous work, creating something for the first time, touching another person.

Art isn’t something you hang on your wall.  Art is something you do when you’re truly alive.

Art might scare you.  Art might bust you.  But art is who we are and what we do and what we need.

An artist is someone who uses bravery, insight, creativity, and boldness to challenge the status quo.

Art isn’t a result;  it’s a journey.  The challenge of our time is to find a journey worthy of your heart and your soul.”

 

So, yes,  I want to use time well.  To serve others.  And to make art.

**********************

And now it’s your turn.

Tell us all about how you’re turning time into your slave and not your master!

If it’s your first time, don’t fret!  You won’t implode the internet if you do it wrong, I promise:)  If you need help with linking up—why does linking up seem so scary?—go here and you will see that my friend, The Nester, is brilliant and has made a linky practice page with all kinds of instructions and hand holding.  She’s so cool like that.

Please link back to this post so your readers will have a chance to benefit from all the wisdom!

And thank you for joining the revolution of Life.  On Purpose!

If you’re not linking up, tell us in the comments all your best time secrets!

Thanks for the awesome links!! I have so enjoyed reading your ebook, highlighting, underlining, putting post it notes for go to ideas and most importantly(well, not really, but the part that I love right now) are your diffusers:0) I promise I’m not that shallow, your ebook is filled with great, humbling things for me, but the diffuser came today and oh my is it a joy!!! I have already ordered more of both kinds you mentioned!! Thanks:0)

Thanks for hosting this Edie! I’ve just recently come across your site and have loved every minute. Your home is gorgeous but I can tell right away that the way you live your life is even better than your home!

Edie- I am one of your newest followers and look forward to plugging away at your site and learning more about you and your insights. I can tell already that you’re my kind of gal. Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this link-up. I generally don’t participate in these type of things, seeing as how my blog is only a small family blog, and about half of my posts are password protected to maintain the privacy of my family. It is nice to occasionally have my voice projected to a larger audience, and your blog gave me that opportunity; thank you. It seems that you also have some lovely readers. I was pleasantly surprised to find some very sweet comments left on my blog from folks who found their way over via your site. Very cool, indeed.

Thank you so much for hosting this, Edie. I do not have a website or a blog, but I am loving your’s and reading all of the other gals who are “linking up” here!
I am loving learning and taking it all in :-)

I’m remiss in saying thank you for hosting this! I only recently discovered your blog, but I jumped right in with the Aeneid. And, unexpectedly, linking up to your party. What a really lovely group of readers you have.

Edie – I love this for so many reasons. Most importantly for what it is teaching me and how I can apply it within my own life. It all starts there. And I just re-subscribed to your email (because I am still not getting them) and it said “You are already a subscriber”.
Talk to those people. Make them send me my Life{In}Grace content. STAT. :)
xoxo,
Claire
