There are really some days that I wish that time is not an intangible object, but something that could be adjusted to fit one’s purpose through the years.
There are days that my to do list is as tall as my 5 ft 11″ if not taller and there is insufficient time to get it all done in one day. There is so much to do and so little time.
Sometimes I sincerely wish that these years will go at a snail pace, so that I will have enough time to savour those I love through the years.
You wake up in the morning and before you turn around it’s evening and the day has just flown past, which is why the phrase of making hay while the Sun shines never fails to reverberate in my mind.
Even if you refused to make the hay, time will still zoom by and the bales of hay to be made still awaits you.
I can remember when I was a small girl which seems like yesterday, and people in their thirties seemed ancient to me.
I can never forget a would be suitor *arranged marriage* that came seeking for my hand when I was barely 18. He was a doctor in his 30’s residing in Italy and I can still recall my horror at the thought of marrying someone who was possibly my fathers age.
Now, here I am, older, wiser, yet still very young in my head at times.
Sometimes, I do nothing, but just ponder over the essence of time and life.
Would I wake up one day and find that I have been dreaming my life all along?
Ever since my sense of how fast time goes by became acute, I try to make each day count, live in each moment and get the best that I can out of it.
With the conscious reality that the best things in life are for free, the onus rests on me to endeavour to enjoy these best things as much as life makes available to me.
There is no time to spend over inane issues. We can’t stop time, but we can embrace what we have and be the pilot’s of our given moments.
