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
