The year is almost over and it’s time again to look back and evaluate the months that passed by. Was it a productive year? Did you use your time wisely?
Lately I’ve come to realize the importance of time, and I don’t mean time as we know it, not the minutes that are ticking steadily on our perfect and accurate clocks. No. I’m talking about our personal time, our internal clock that moves and adjusts according to our needs and moments.
So, what time does that clock say?
My clock is running in fast forward and I need to slow it down. There are times that I catch myself enjoying walking slowly, noticing the people and the places around me, than just heading straight to my destination. But I don’t usually do that, since I’m late and then I have to hurry.
But I’m tired of running after time and I want to just stop and enjoy it. I want to grasp every moment as if it’s something touchable, to cherish it and actually feel it.
So as this year is slowly ending, I’m tossing the clocks away. Or at least I’ll try hard to slow down time and feel each minute of the day. Because life is too short and years fly away.
Close your eyes, take a deep breath and focus on the ticking clock…
