*BEEP BEEP BEEP* The alarm clock tells me it’s time to get up. Why so early? I guess because I truly enjoy the peace of the early morning hours. Something about how still the house and noise outside is helps clear my mind. After the sun rises, my mind becomes cloudy with thoughts of lists, errands etc.
This morning, I decided instead of doing a cardio workout I was going to spend time doing some simple stretches to get my muscle going this morning. (I realize that makes me sound old.) In doing so, found myself wishing away time. Not literally wishing my days away, rather wishing the end of the year was here so I could be done with my 365 project, wishing I had already showered, wishing it was time to go back to bed.
*STOP* I thought to myself!!
*STOP* I can’t wish the days away, but we all do it.
After refocusing, I started thinking about kids and how they can’t wait for birthdays, holidays, school to be over when it has only begun, how they want to grow up so fast. I think it’s safe to say, we have all been in a place where we wished time away. Traveling, having tests done etc, but now most of us are in a place where we wish we could go back in time. Wanting to go back and be a child again, to enjoy the moments we should have back then. I can think to the vacation Chris and I took in September, I now wish I would’ve planned a little better ahead of time. There are things I wish I’d seen or done now that we’re home. So many moments I wish I could have done better, but I was too busy waiting for it to be over that I wasted the time I was given.
Now, I sit here proofreading this post, thinking of the things I need to do this afternoon…wishing for more time. Guess more practice needs to be done on trying to live in the moment. 😉
