Time is of the essence. It’s about time! Take your time. Time out. The time of your life.
Time time time time time time.
So many sayings and quotes about time. I looked for a good one, but they are all good, and so, so familiar. As a kid, I remember wanting to speed time up for exciting things like birthdays and Christmas. Waiting to turn 16 so badly so I could drive. The anticipation for vacations. All of those things.
And now I want time to stand still. It disappears far too quickly and I want to hold onto every single piece of it and stretch it out and feel the moments again. Days go by too fast! It is so cliche, but I can’t even believe we are in the middle of January already. Wasn’t Christmas yesterday? People were asking me today how my holidays were, and they were great! But my brain has already transitioned to the next day, the next idea, the next thing-to-do. I don’t want time to disappear like that. I want to keep it in a tiny box so that I can open it and take some extra out when I need it and smell it and feel it and remember it.
I want to spend my time wisely; but then again, I don’t want to spend it at all! Once it is spent, it is gone, right? I’m selfish. I want more and more and more. I need a 30-hour day, I think. Is that too much to ask? Life is just so busy, and I don’t want to miss it in the midst of the business! Argh!
And I’m not writing this in a nostalgic, dark, “cancer has taken my time away” way. I legit have a lot of crap to get done in a day and I feel like I never have enough time to do it! And cancer can’t take my time because it is mine and I’m keeping it in that little box for safe keeping. So don’t worry.
2017 is going to be a good time. Just you wait.
