Time flies when your having…..

Another month has come and gone. They say time flies when your having fun….but in reality, how many of us would actually call our days “fun”. Sure, we may have some fun moments throughout our days, which usually only occurs on the weekends anyway since the week days are filled with a thing called work, sleep, and more work that drains our days of time and takes away from any possibility of “fun” that could be had. But majority of the time, our days are mostly filled with stress, food, a smile here and there and some more stress before ending the day, going to sleep, and starting it all over again the next day. Not to say these days are full of misery, (because your days are truly what you make them) but they tend to be filled with real life situations, no matter how jolly you try to be or stay, that you just simply can’t escape. And by real life I mean kids crying, tantrums being thrown, bills waiting to be paid, groceries to be bought, too long of work days, and of course lack of sleep (because if you have a life, the recommended 8-9 hours is pretty close to impossible, hence the dire need for and addiction to caffeine we have everyday). So my point of this post is to basically say, does time really fly when your having fun?…or does time fly because we get so lost in the duties of our everyday, real life situations, that we fail to realize the hours, days, months and years that so quickly pass us by. Time is precious, and as I sit here and stare at my little bundle of joy, swaddled and sleeping so peacefully on my chest, I sometimes wish I could pause time, just for a little, and enjoy the little things that become so easily overlooked. (I know, easier said than done). We may never be able to pause time, but we can at least take a minute, or ten, out of the 24 hours in a day that are given to us, to reflect on the things we cherish and love the most. The very things we live for. (Especially knowing how easily and quickly those 24 hours can be taken away from us without warning). Don’t let time pass you so quickly that you loose track and can’t keep up. Don’t give yourself the opportunity to say “Where did the time go? I wish I could go back…” Don’t let life consume you. Consume life. Goodnight image
