It is a brand new day. And as the morning progresses, I've been thinking a lot about the idea of "time." I often do this! Where does the time go? I mean, it's already 2016!
What I've realized is that it is always going to be this way; time will pass, seemingly very quickly. There's no way to slow it down. However, what I've also realized is that if there is any "way" of slowing down time, the way to do so is by being fully present in the current moment.
Take a look around (as I'm currently doing between looking at this computer screen!) and find something that is of beauty to you. For example, in my situation, there is a beautiful green tree right outside my window - in the middle of hectic and crazy L.A.! I often spend a few moments simply watching the tree and aiming to be fully present with it. Lots of different kinds of birds visit this tree, and they even come to my hummingbird feeder which I've placed on my balcony, close to some of the branches of the tree.
This "tree" example (for lack of a better description I suppose!) is a reminder that among the hustle and bustle of our days, by aiming to be fully present, and not think about the past or the future, we can "slow" time a little bit. I believe that this is because when we are fully present, we are fully here. We're not "on the run" thinking about what is next, or dwelling on mistakes from the past.
So, my reader friend, aim to stay fully present today! And enjoy all of your moments! :)
