Did that evoke a negative response when you read that? Because a negative response was pretty much my reaction this morning when a friend made mention of this not so welcome fact.
Why why why do we feel compelled to make time go faster than it needs to? I’m a shocker for living in the future. You know, the space where you’re constantly planning and preparing for what’s coming up. I’ve always been like that but especially since I’m at home on my own with the girls most of the time but I’ve been trying to make a concerted effort this year to live more in the present. Whilst some days it’s a struggle, I can assure anyone who is reading this that I do not need to know that Christmas is ‘looming’.
It feels like we’ve only just gotten over Christmas and my SIL has already started planning our Christmas break away at the lake so before we know it, it’ll be upon us before we know it. And I still have Miss B’s birthday coming up let alone try and wrack my brain for another gift that she, let’s be honest here, really does not need.
So let’s pretend like Christmas is still a long long long long way off and enjoy the rest of this weekend instead, ok?
Have you given any thought to Christmas yet? Are you prone to living in the future or have you worked out how to be present the majority of the time?
