I have heard and stated so often, “Time flies when you are having fun.” I used to believe it until we left on this journey.
I have a whole new perspective on time. Time no longer rules my kingdom because I have an abundance of it. Because I have an abundance of time, I fill it with things I have always wanted to do. Because my time is full of things I have always wanted to do, each day feels like a lifetime fulfilled. Because each day feels like a lifetime fulfilled, these past five months feel like years, decades, lifetimes!
A long day used to have a negative connotation, now it means more time to live a dream. It is not as if time has stopped, it is more as if it lost its power over me. I took the reins and all of sudden, I have more of what I once lacked. What was once precious now takes its orders from me. Time is on my side.
We now look at time in relationship to sunrise, sunset, coffee time, tea time, quiet time, and time for a new adventure. Our time is Southern Italy is wrapping up because we have decided it is time.
As Albert Einstein said, “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.”
