Time seems to be disappearing at an incredible pace at the moment.
Do you ever get overwhelmed by how busy life seems to be? By how little time you seem to have?
I get a feeling that I can only describe as claustrophobia, of being trapped, when our calendar fills up and there seems to be too much going on and not enough time to get everything done. I feel out of control and that induces a feeling of anxiety and panic.
To help combat this, I took to Google for some reassuring words. The idea that time flies past but that we are each the pilot of our own time helped me feel back in control.
I also like the idea that time only passes quickly when we are happy. Have you ever noticed how slowly time drags when you are bored or sad? So the fact I feel that time is playing a vanishing act on me at present must mean I am very happy, which in itself is a very uplifting thought.
Our minds are, as always, guiding our experience. The apparent speed at which time passes is merely a trick of our wayward minds.
A week today, Mr B, bump and I are off on our holidays, two weeks relaxing in the South of France. I can’t wait. For those two weeks, time will stand still.
