Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Is it Sunday already?

by Tanya on January 22, 2012


The weeks move too quickly. My mom always talked about time moving so fast, all I could think was when will this semester be over already! Now I understand, and it get’s worse every year. These last two weeks have been crazy busy and stressful. Jam packed with homeschooling activities and a beloved kitty that is very ill and under constant care by PFMan and I. To top it off, we’ve been getting the house ready for our House Warming party this coming Saturday. We have just over 100 people who have RSVP’d and the stressing has begun, lol. Another thing my mom always said, still does is “This too shall pass”, and it will. I just wish it didn’t pass so quickly.

I’m always working on trying to stay as present as possible, this is so difficult for me, strong ego always in the way. I’ll keep trucking along. I’d love to know what other do to stay present, slow down time, any suggestions?

Slow down time? I wish I knew how. Of course I still have days / periods that really seem to drag on and on and on. Probably because I’m still in college…?

Sorry to hear about your kitty. :-( That stinks. Good luck with the Housewarming Party.

My suggestion: deep breathing. It calms you and centers your focus. And listen to the song “The Secret O’ Life” by James Taylor.

My favorite line is “The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.” Enjoy it. Don’t wait for it to be over.

I always had the feeling when I was little that it was TOO early to have Sunday here because it meant heading back to school the next day…blah! I guess when I was working as an adult I still felt the same way!

I have a really hard time staying in the present. I feel like it’s almost impossible. I feel like I’m constantly pulled in 90 directions at once.
Good luck with your party, and I hope your kitty feels better soon. :(
And Fadra is right, The Secret of Life is one of the best J.T. songs ever!
