Time and Tide

It’s funny isn’t it when you think about time, we have all these sayings that incorporate it.

‘Time is a great healer’

‘Time and tide wait for no man’

‘Time can change me, but I can’t change time’

We spend so much of our time worrying about where we are meant to be, when we are meant to be there, how we will get there and who will be there when we arrive. This goes for all walks of our lives.

I am a big fan of the ‘this time in the past’ feature on Facebook which gives you snapshots of your memories from that day for years prior. Mine often include the children and my best friends. People who play massive and important roles and who I am truly grateful for.

Time has changed all of us over the last year and it’s that time of year where we reflect on this and what we want for our next year.

My boys have over the last year grown into even bigger boys who have started to eat us out of house and home and have little concept of time and how it works. They want everything now, whether it be information, outings, food and often can’t grasp the things that tend to get in the way such as waiting until daddy gets home from work, waiting for people to arrive, waiting for me to get th new toilet roll (you get the drift!)

That youthful impatience and outlook on the world is so interesting as of course one of the lessons we have to learn as we grow is patience. We can’t have everything now and good things take time. 

The wait for Christmas is a classic example of time standing still for little ones, they are desperate for it to be the big day and it’s been what seems like months of waiting and it still isn’t here whereas us grown ups are desperately wishing for a few more days to get the food ready, parcels wrapped and house in order. If you are one of those super organised people not only do I bow at your feet but I also beg you to help me next year! 

Time means the same for each and every one of us and yet we all think of it differently. 

How do you feel about time today? Are you rushed off your feet or chilling to Christmas music with a chocolate baileys in hand (I’ve embraced the addiction, I thought it was best!) 

Whatever you are doing I hope you have a lovely time today and time treats you well.
