Ambushed by time

Well, that’s the first half of the year, done.

I don’t know why I am surprised by the passage of time, but I am. Constantly.

This is in contrast my kids who think that time is dragging it heels.

“We’ve got places to go, people to be.”

They want time to speed up so that they can become the people they want to be.

I want time to slow down for the same reason.

We all miss the reality of the situation, which is that who we are is defined now, not tomorrow.

But putting the emphasis on “now” puts accountability, ownership and responsibility on us. Right now. Some days that’s empowering, others it’s a burden.

The skill is to be able to move from the latter to the former, and then to do something constructive with it.

Thankfully, in most cases, that’s just a case of paying careful attention to the situation, and putting one foot in front of the other.
