Was it only yesterday or was it the day before? Where did the time go? Seems like the older one gets, the faster the time goes. Just seems that way because time is constant, it does not change…we do.
The change isn’t something we plan or even take part in, nor do we notice it day by day, but when we realize it’s Saturday again…it’s a “where did the week go” kind of thing. One day blends into another and before you realize it, another week is gone.
Busy will do it…not enough time in the day to get things done. Retired does it too…that feeling of doing nothing and getting behind. Keeping busy is healthy for all ages…not too busy, but the “enough to do” kind of busy.
Listening to the ticking of a clock in a quiet room is an exercise in stillness. You sit, breathing in and out, listening to each tick as it becomes each beat of your heart. You remember that time is a gift…one day the ticking will stop and your heart will beat no more. You vow to pay more attention to time…it is all you have.
