Di of Pensitivity is our host for Truthful Tuesday again this week. Her question is:
Do you find time goes faster as we age?
Yes, everyone I know seems to find this to be true. The months fly by and you wonder where the time went. Is it because we are so busy trying to fit in everything we have to do and as many of the things we want to do as we can? Or does it happen for people who are not so busy and always think there will be plenty of time to do things only to be unpleasantly surprised when there isn’t?
Maybe it’s because of commercialism. Advertising is always reminding us that the next holiday we have to shop for is just around the corner. Christmas decorations go up earlier every year it seems. I do wish they would wait till after Halloween to put them out. Easter things are in the stores at the same time as Valentine’s Day and the supermarkets start selling Hot Cross Buns on Boxing Day which enrages me every year. Is it any wonder we feel that time is racing past us?
I do remember when I was a child and time did not seem to pass so quickly, except during the school holidays which were over before I wanted them to be while schooldays stretched on interminably.
I have booked to go on a cruise to New Zealand next year. I booked it a few months ago and the trip is still a bit over a year away. At the moment it still feels like it will be forever until I can go. It doesn’t seem real to me. On the other hand, it’s been three years this month since I came to Sisters Beach yet that seems like no time at all. Our concepts of time are very strange aren’t they?
