Everywhere I go, I find people commenting, “I can’t believe how time is flying. Life seems to be going by so fast!” They tell me, “Days and months seem to be zipping by almost in a blur.”
Is this a fantasy or reality? Is it our imagination or is something actually happening? Recall rock band Buffalo Springfield singing, “There’s something happening here. What it is ain’t exactly clear … stop, children, what’s that sound? Everybody look what’s goin’ down.”
Seriously, what is goin’ down?
“Seems like summer just got started — it’s already over … I can’t believe kids have been back in school for weeks! … Costco’s gonna’ start putting up Christmas stuff … where’d the time go?”
Before we know it, they’ll begin stocking shelves for Super Bowl Sunday!
Things to ponder
The older we get the quicker time seems to pass. Why is that? When we were five it seemed like an eternity as we eagerly counted days until Christmas. That represented about 20% of our life. When we’re 50, it represents about 2%. Hence, the gap shortens and everything seems to come quicker with the pace ever quickening.
