I know I sound like a broken record and I’m wearing the hell out of the cliche’s about time but DUDE. . . . I swear the older I get, time flies by even faster! And what do I do? I try to cram even more stuff in to each day to try and “stay ahead”. Yeah, it’s not working out so well. I almost had a nervous breakdown a few days ago when I realized in EIGHTEEN MONTHS my daughter will be five and on her way to kindergarten!
WHAT. THE . HELL.
Eighteen months? That is not nearly enough time to. . .for. . .I don’t know but I know I’m not ready! But see, that’s the funny thing about time- IT DOESN’T CARE! It doesn’t care what you think, how you feel, what you’re doing, what you’re not doing. . .it’s going to keep on keeping on. . .
My quote today in the Superwoman Syndrome series:
“The days are passing by too fast. I think instead of trying to keep up, I need to slow down.”
Yeah, real talk. I’m done trying to cram two days worth of stuff into one day. I think I’ll have a “free day” at some point if I continue to do that but I end up on a merry go round of madness instead. Last Friday I didn’t log on to my computer AT ALL and Saturday, I spent about one hour that morning on the computer and that was it! It felt so good to just focus on my family and have some time to myself. I think I’m going to impose “no computer” days more often!
My affirmation for today: Time doesn’t need my permission or cooperation, it will move on with or without me. Slow down, breathe and enjoy the moment more often!
