That’s a very profound quote. I never really thought of it that way.
Me either, and I was happy to pass along the quote! I experience this all the time…my days seem so long, but the months fly by! ~ Sheila
I have so many things I want to accomplish and every day provides new ideas and I think I would need a thousand years to do it all and do it well. Wow. Inspiring post for sure.
Oh Renee, you are the inspiration! Your novel writing goals and month of blog posts show that you have real discipline and can really come through when you make a commitment! I try to fulfill my commitments too, but I haven’t yet been able to make my blogging or other forms of writing conform to a schedule! Not sure if I just haven’t tried hard enough or what! But I’m working at finding the fine line between discipline and creativity, and learning how to harness the two forces (hopefully to my advantage!) ~ Sheila
It is amazing how much more quickly time passes as we age. Remember in elementary school, a weekend seemed like such a long time? Christmas vacation was forever? And summer vacation was endless?? Now it’s Monday before I even realize Friday’s gone. (Of course, since I don’t hold down a job, it really doesn’t matter.)
Enjoyed this post. Such truth.
Dianna, I agree! I usually find myself amazed on Friday that another week has gone by in a blur! I am on a never ending quest to slow down and be in control of my time. Not that I think I’m unique…I think this is the common plight of modern day humans…we are on the fast track and can’t seem to get off without a lot of angst and effort! ~ Thank you for sharing! ~ Sheila
So true!… So I am trying to take one day at a time and make it the best I can…Not always exciting…but, a day I can look at with a note …”I didn’t waste it!” ~ mkg
Your posts always sound like you have found the secret to enjoying each day! You obviously put a lot of time and effort into your family and that’s wonderful. We don’t have any family near us, and although we are working on an eventual relocation, I sometimes feel that my days are too full of the hectic and busy stuff, less full of the truly important things/people in life! Well, it’s all about finding balance, isn’t it?! ~ Sheila
Oh, how I wish for some of the adventure you are having…as you say, a good balance would be nice…I do love my simple life…but, look forward to any little adventure that comes my way!
