I know I sound “old” in saying this, but time really does fly. And, from what I can tell, it’s on a private jet. I find it hard to believe that it is already February when it feels like we were counting down ’09 just last week.
It really hit me hard this morning, when I realized that it has been almost a year since I quit smoking. Right before bed, February 3rd, 2009 – the last time I put a cigarette in my mouth and took a draw. On a sidenote – thank goodness for that. One of the best decisions I have ever made was to get rid of that awful habit. Now, back to the topic at hand – time!
It has been a great year since last February, filled with many amazing moments and achievements. So, I’m wondering if it’s possible that that’s why time went so fast? If I was living on the streets would time still fly, or would it move like molasses? I don’t know if I’ll ever discover the answer to that question, and hope I never find myself in the kind of situation that would answer that, but I think it may be true what they say – “time flies when you’re having fun”. And fun I sure did have. As a positive thinker who’s always trying to make the most of my time on earth, I’m almost constantly having fun to some respect.
If only there was some way to slow the clock, and have fun at the same time. Unfortunately I don’t think that there is, and until I’m proven different all I can do is make the most of every moment – while it does last.
The way I see it, life is a blessing, not a right. And it can end faster than it began, in the blink of an eye. That’s why we must be thankful for every new day, and always make good use of our time. If we don’t, it will get away from us, and before we know it, it will be too late.
