Is It Just Me?

I can’t believe it’s time to start a new year.  I also can’t believe this is me sounding exactly like every older person in the world talking about how quickly time flies.  

Days go by faster than I can mark them off on my calendar – or more accurately my Day-At-A-Glance appointment book and ever-present To Do lists.

There’s both good and bad about this.  The good?  We don’t have to wait too long for anything we’re looking forward to.  When we were kids, it seemed the day after tomorrow would never get here.  Now?  Just turn around.  Here it is.  The bad, of course, is that it’s possible for several days to slip past while we’re still deciding what to do about next week.

As inevitable as aging is (someone said if we’re lucky we’ll get old) so is the need to make time count for something.

I’m not a resolutions person, but I do have intentions that matter to me,  and one is to make better use of the time allotted.  That’s about the only thing I stand a chance of affecting.   There’s nothing wrong with a modest goal to ring in the New Year.

  1. Hammy, you’re absolutely right — the changing of the calendar always hits me like a smoke alarm and I’m sick of it. I have made a resolution for the new year: to stop worrying and stressing over things that are inevitable and/or unimportant. Most things are both.

    Calendars and clocks are human inventions. I quit wearing a watch decades ago. From now on the only significance a calendar will hold for me will be to keep track of weekends and vacations. 😉

    Happy new year, all!
