How Do We Put a Hold on Time?
The years continue to swish by. It almost feels like someone has waved their magic wand and – poof! – here we are in the present moment. Where does the time go? Sometimes I feel like it is hiding around some corner waiting to step out and surprise me. Maybe that is what I am wishing for, extra time for extra moments in my life.
As I continue to clear out my home and business of things that no longer “fit”, I see that many lifetimes have passed. Not just in mine, but in others around me as well. Funny how we view life as we move through all its stages. When we are children we see anyone over 30 as “old”; when we are in our 30’s, people in their 60’s seem “old”; then we are in our 50’s, and we look upon those in their 90’s as such.
As I look in the mirror and see the lines and creases on my face and hands, I remember when I used to see them in my mother’s when I was little – and I realize that now my child views me in the same light. He follows the veins in my hands just as I did my mother’s. It doesn’t bother me; it just reminds me of the circle of life and how time does not stop or even slow down. How we just live from one moment to the next. How we should cherish each moment we’re living in.
There’s an old saying, “What goes around, comes around”. How are you feeling about where you are in life now?
