Is it just me or has this entire year gone by in a flash? I mean come on, I feel like only yesterday it was February, I blinked and suddenly we’re a week away from December?! How?!
How are we already seeing advent calendars, Christmas lights and Starbucks’ festive drinks when I still have uneaten Easter eggs sitting on my shelf (ok that was obviously a lie, of course I would never leave chocolate unattended for more than seven seconds let alone seven months, but you get what I mean!). Something’s definitely amiss…
Perhaps we can put the blame on good ol’ Father Time. Perhaps he jokingly decided to hit the Fast Forward button on his big special remote control and that’s what’s causing the days to zip by quicker than you can say supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! Yeah that must be it!
There has to be some explanation because lately it just seems like there aren’t enough hours in the day. I’m forever whizzing around and if I’m not physically doing something/going somewhere, I’m mentally running 100 miles an hour!
And while I much prefer to be rushed off my feet than to be bored out of my mind, I’d just like to put some temporary brakes on and s-l-o-w things down for a bit. Is that really too much to ask?
I’ve tried a few of those herbal teas and yoga/deep-breathing exercises but unfortunately to no avail; I’m just not cut out for that life. I even vowed to take a break from coffee, not hard considering I never drink it any way, but the point is that I’ve tried a bunch of things to readjust the speed settings on my life and nothing’s worked so far!
So as a last resort I’ve decided that I’ll use this blog post to appeal to you directly Father Time, seeing as you’re the one that I’m holding accountable for this mess! If you’re listening, please just take it easy on all of us and RELAX. Allow yourself to rest and don’t be in such a rush, it’s not good for you. Put your feet up, eat a KitKat and let us poor mortals catch up with you!
Thank you, I hope that you’ll take my request into consideration.
