I was thinking about the phrase “Time flies when you’re having fun!” today. While I think everyone has experienced this to some degree, maybe it’s all about appreciation. For example, today is a beautfiul day. I could be frazzled that my bank account isn’t where I’d want it to be (by the way, I still wonder where my millions went. They’re supposed to be there already), or that I don’t know exactly what I want to pursue professionally. I could be upset that there are dying children and overflowing animal shelters or something. Or I could take a step back and realize that in spite of all of the bad things that happen, good things happen too.
Maybe if we all took a step back, time wouldn’t necessarily fly, we’d just have more energy to actually live productively, doing things we want to do.
Just a thought.
