Time is a concept.

“With age it seems that time is flying too fast” – people are saying. It looks the same to me sometimes – years feel like months and days are like hours.
I remember being a kid playing and enjoy life without thinking about the concept of time. Growing up I started paying more attention to my emotions and taking them all too seriously, and life took a different turn. I started dividing time innocently between good and bad. Adulthood happen – with it life became more serious and the joy and laughter started dissipating slowly.
Looking back I see clearly now that what I have considered being rough was actually the time when learning, connecting and growing happened.
‘Time flying too fast” – it’s just a concept. We have bought into this idea of endless search of happiness forgetting to slow down sometimes and realise that joy, love and everything else is available in this moment.
Alan Watts said it well: “Stop measuring days by degree of productivity and start experiencing them by the degree of presence”.
Being present – is the game-changer, because something new can open up – more creativity and inspiring ideas.
Would you agree that nothing is more important than connection and believing in yourself?
Believe in yourself, even when in doubt. Doubts are like the weather, continuously changing. One moment it’s sunny and the next is cloudy and rainy. However, you have the inner knowing that the sun is still there and after a while, it will be sunny again.
Losing hope is part of life, to receive something of value, first, you will be tested and your world can be turned upside-down numerous times before you can feel the success you want. Success is not always monetary, it can take different forms.
We can break the commitment sometimes, but it’s important to get back on track and move toward the objective.
