Is it just me? Or does time seem to be whizzing by for others too?
It seems that the older I get the faster time passes. Sometimes I wonder if there is some kind of freaky physics thing happening that is causing time to move faster than it once did. Whatever happened to the days of waiting in anticipation for something to happen? These days it’s more like things are upon me before I realize it.
It’s more than just being busy–though I am busy. Hours, days, weeks, months seem to blend together and before I know it a season has passed by. I’m finding it difficult to live mindfully and in the moment because there always seems to be something I need to get done, somewhere I need to be, someone I need to touch base with.
There are so many things I want to do but I struggle to find time to get them done. I want to start working on another quilt (or finish one of my WIPs); there seems to be a never-ending selection of books I want to read; there are closets and drawers in my house begging to be sorted through; there are topics I want to study up on (like keeping goats and chickens). And work? Don’t even get me started about all the things I have to do at work.
It would be such a treat, even just for a few days, to have the ability to slow the passing of time, to experience life like I did as a child when it seemed time passed so slowly. Remember those lazy days of summer vacation that seemed to last forever? How about the excruciating anticipation of waiting for Christmas to arrive? Ah, if only. If only.
If you hear any news about some crazy time warp thing happening in the world please let me know. And if you’re experiencing the same phenomenon of time speeding up let me know that too.
I hate to think I’m the only one experiencing this.
