We all know how time can fly by --- days, weeks, even months! How is it possible that in our youth time dragged! First it would seem as though school would never be out for the summer. Then suddenly summer was here -- the days were long and filled with fun, activity and sunshine!
Before we knew it our parents were talking about "back-to-school clothes." If there was ever a time in my young life when time passed quickly, it was watching those summer days fly by. Older people used to say to me that as I got older the time would go by faster. I didn't believe them. Time only travels at one speed.
Now I am older. Now I know what they meant. I see the same bored expression on the faces of young children as they complain "There is Nothing To Do!" And yet they have every electronic gadget known to man at their fingertips, just waiting to entertain them -- but still they moan and say "There is Nothing To Do."
Of course you can't go into a big department store and have any idea of what time of the year it is because if it's October all you'll see is Christmas trees and ads to clothing, toys, presents of all types -- "GET IT NOW WHILE THE SELECTION IS GOOD!" If I bought my Christmas presents then I would probably lose them before Christmas! And as soon as Christmas is over they seem to combine Valentine's Day and Easter!! They definitely never heard the saying of "Living One Day at a Time!" Or even to live in the present -- they are always so far ahead into the future they don't even know what's just around the corner.
One thing is certain, if my weight came off as fast as my days go by -- I'd be a skinny girl right now!!
Cheer Up! Time is relative!
