Sometimes we lose ‘power’ in our lives as an indication that we need to pause or slow down.
The same way you set time for particular things in your calendar – same way you should set time for certain people. Do not give them complete access to you. Do not give them all of your time.
Time and thyme are not to be played with. Your thyme is precious!
Consider a sprig of thyme equivalent to a minute of your time. Let no one use up your thyme recklessly.
