After having a discussion earlier today about this, as I was driving home … I realized something about this saying – its just not true.
Any kind of excitement and anticipation make it feel like time is sloooowing down. Think about it. Lets say you’re so excited to do something with your friends on Friday. You have these huge plans. The whole week is going to feel like a month, because you just can’t wait for it to be that day!
I think as people get older, they get less and less excited about Life in general, with an attitude “been there, done that”. Nothing surprises them. Nothing really takes their breath away, or disappoints them. They’ve been through many ups and downs etc. Its all about the same…
Don’t do that! Get excited :)
I think the key to enjoying life is always to be “in the mystery” like its your first day on this planet, to be excited to see what’s around the corner. I think its somewhere right in between of whats called “The beginner’s mind” in Zen, and “becoming a child again” in Matthew 18:1 .
Hope, desire, and passion make Life worth living!
Is there something you always wanted to do but gave up on? Get really inspired and time will fell normal again, just like when you were a little kid.
