The thing is we all get the same amount of time in a day, in a week, in a month, in a year. Absolutely, we know that we don’t know how many of those days, weeks, months or years that we will have on Earth. We do know that each day has the same amount of time.
So you know how everyone says, ‘time flies when you’re having fun’? Heck, I’ve even said it and there is part of me that believes the statement. But as we come to the beginning of September, there is a big vibe of “oh my gosh, I can’t believe it’s September where did the year go? The year has gone so fast”. I heard on the radio the other day and the announcer said “as they say, time flies when you’re having fun”.
But I actually think time flies when you’re busy and you have a full schedule. Sure, sometimes that full schedule is fun but most times it’s the daily grind and the reason why the time feels like it’s flying is because our brain, heart and soul is constantly occupied and on full alert. It doesn’t have space to stop, breathe, reflect and be present.
Don’t want the year to go so fast? Cut down on your busyness and make space in your schedule. When you have space in your schedule you will be forced to slow down. To be present with your family and friends and to notice how you’re really feeling and what’s going on around you.
There’s my food for thought as we enter into the first days of September.
Don’t want time to feel like it’s going so fast? Look at your diary and clear your schedule. Whether it be regularly for 6-12 months or just for a week or two. Either way, you will thank yourself for it and you’ll be able to look back at what happened in that time and remember it.
