Precious Time

Every year seems to zoom by faster than the previous year. My grandma and I agree on this “speeding time” theory. She thinks it’s just because she’s older, I swear it has nothing to do with age. The concept of time is a wild thing for me to wrap my brain around, here’s why.

The way time goes by baffles me because while it seems to take an¬†eternity for my goals to come together quickly, my days and weeks flip from day to night quicker than I can keep up with.¬† I’m not complaining, we all have to manage our hours the best we can – it just toys with my mind.

Chunks of my life that didn’t seem very long ago are now fading memories. I know this when I see friends trading their two door cars for four doors. I experience it when I reconnect with co-workers from my first career on Facebook. Did you catch that? “First career”!? I did my best to avoid the horror stories that college graduates would have more than one career in their lifetime – lots of luck with that one.

I admire those of you that have known your life passion since you were a kid, but that’s not the case for me. However, I will spend all the time it takes to find out what it is that I am here to do. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t get tired and frustrated. I feel like I’m wasting my time on numerous occasions. Sometimes I feel unappreciated and foolish to think that I am dreaming so big. Then I think back and see how much time has passed and honestly see how many things that I have done that I never thought were possible. If I’ve done it before, I can do it again. I can do it better if I take my time. -trvw
