I usually have a good idea about what my word for the week will be by Wednesday. This week I’m writing on the fly, nothing much has happened so I’m writing about something I’ve been thinking lots about instead, time.
Time seems to be going faster this year than it ever has before, I know it’s not physically possible but it really does seem that way. Looking at my calendar it’s hard to believe we are almost halfway through the year already. It feels like yesterday we were welcoming in the new year!
I’m wondering if it’s an age thing, that time somehow goes faster the older you get. Maybe it’s just modern living, everything is available with the touch of a button or the swipe of a finger. I don’t know about you but I can lose so much time just endlessly scrolling through social media. Is that where time is going? Is it because the world seems like a faster place to live in these days?
I also think time seems to go faster when you have kids, they seem to grow up too quickly before your eyes even. School plays a big part in this I think, the terms seem to all blend into one and before you know it, it’s the summer holidays.
We booked our holiday a year ago and now it’s almost time to go, I think that’s what got me deep thinking about all this time nonsense. I’ve been so busy lately so I’m more than ready to slow down and relax for a while. I’m planning to stretch the days out for as long as possible, make the most of every minute and enjoy spending lots of time together as a family.
I’m linking up with Anne from Raisie Bay for Word of the Week.
