“What’s something that poor people have that rich people want? Time.”-Unknown
I have noticed that last year seems like yesterday, and high school seems like last week. Life has sped up, but I don’t remember turning up the dial. Nowadays, I find myself thinking about the future.
When is that bill due again?
What will I do in the next 3 months?
Will I have enough money to do ________ in a couple of weeks?
Will I be married next year?
When am I gonna finish this book?
It’s enough to barely drive me insane, but there’s something far greater being depleted as a result: Time. For me, thinking of the future speeds up time. I guess it’s because I’m subliminally trying to rush the process, but for what? It’s funny: The quicker you drive, the quicker you actually……get there. Then what?
Just think about it.
Remember when you were a kid? Time seemed to slowly float by, like you were under water. It dawned on me that my childhood was the least complicated time of my life. I didn’t have any worries (well, except maybe about girls). As I look back at my former years, it’s refreshing to see how carefree I used to be. Have no fear: I’m slowly working backwards toward that level of freedom. I’m no Marty McFly, but as long as I choose to “live in the now,” I’ll be well on my way.
Think about this: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”-Bill Keane
Until Next time,
Love & Peace.
