Time flies by SO FAST. One second, I am sitting in the living room with my face buried in books – few moments later I find myself washing my hands at my internship. Sometimes it just hits me. These weird streams of realisation how unfavorable time is, at the most unexpected times.
I get myself stressed about something, preparing all week to do it – and suddenly it’s gone. It’s over, I did it and I don’t even know how! It just went by, not a big deal. The same as when I get excited about something, for example a trip. I look forward for many days, weeks and then – IT’S THERE. But when the moment arrives, it’s not different than any other moment. It’s absolutely the same. It is just a moment, a piece of time. Yes, it is different to hang out on a trip than work really hard at my job. But it’s still just a moment. A piece of time. And then that piece of time is over.
I honestly have no idea, if you can understand what I’m “talking” about. I just wanted to share this thought that was getting to me more and more often. I still remember a quote that was painted on the wall in my high school: “Remember, even the toughest hour in your life is just one hour.” Well, I guess that is what a lot of us don’t think about. Life can be very hard at some points, very cruel and we feel all negative and sad. But I think that if we remember that it’s (most of the time) not gonna stay like that forever or for a long time, we can get ourselves out of this negative stage and get over these “bad” moments easier.
As an example: It is Monday. You have an appointment at a dentist on Friday. You live each day with a thought that Friday is coming and Friday now symbolises pain and fear. You are really scared. The closer the Friday is, the bigger the fear is. But then the Friday comes and you find yourself at the dentist. You go through some pain, but it is way less painful then you originally imagined. After an hour or two, you are done. You walk out of the dentist, the moment is over. Sometimes you feel satisfied, sometimes you feel overwhelmed. But the reason why you were so scared is over.
I could continue to write about this for a very long time. But I’m just gonna end it here and for sure come back with this topic in the future. Just try to think about this for a little. Time is going very fast. And it is up to all of us, how we are gonna flow with it. Because it is not gonna stop, or go faster no matter how hard you try to make it work like that. You have to live in the moment, so why not enjoy it as much as you can? Talk to you soon. ❤
“People wait all week for Friday, all year for summer, all life for happiness.”
