The saying goes “Time flies when you are having fun.” This is true, but I recently heard the saying, “Time flies when you are living.” I really liked that one, because yes, this is correct, I like this saying better. Yes, it flies when we are having fun, but when we are having fun, the time flies, because we are immersed in the moment. Time flies when we are productive busy, or doing a hobby we enjoy. This all involves immersing ourselves in the moment. I do think, “but do I really want time to fly all the time.” Time goes by fast already, but if you are living, why not?
I do think down times are important too, times of boredom, it is nice to bored sometimes. It allows time to slow down a bit. It can also inspire and motivate me to do things, it also pushes me more to get into the groove of the work week. It makes it easier to step into the work week. Living in the moment is a wonderful thing.
I was wondering what I should write for my next post. I couldn’t think of anything inspiring, and things have been difficult for me the past week, so I filled my days with distractions, which makes it harder to be inspired. The moment I sit down, and allow my mind to wonder, inspiration hits me. I find this quite fascinating.
Time is relative, when I think time is moving slow, it will, but if I think it is moving fast, it moves fast. The important thing is to be in the moment and embrace the moment at hand. Accept what is happening now. I do this at work. I used to think time moved slow, because my focus was on leaving, and going home. Now I just stay in the moment and focus on the task at hand at work. Time seems to move much quicker now.
