“The bad news is time flies – the good news is you’re the pilot”.
I hear myself commenting so much about how time flies.
Every year I make each of the kids a photo album of all the pictures of them from the previous year -it’s their Valentine’s present. So in the month of January I am busy looking at all the photos of the past year and then I get all nostalgic and pull out all the albums of previous years and am always truly amazed at how BIG everyone is getting! I honestly shake my head and think “where did the time go”. I am constantly reminded that “the days are long but the years are short” (one of my all time favorite quotes).
Feeling all teary and nostalgic, I then remind myself that the present is tomorrow’s past, so soon enough I will be looking back on THESE days. This then makes me put away whatever I am doing, and go enjoy the present and soak in all the precious moments. Time may go by quickly, but I am in full control over whether I waste my time or use up every ounce of it in the way that I want.
So that’s what I’m going to do right now.
Enjoy piloting your time!
