This year has just flown by- where has the time gone? In the past, I was never really able to relate to this phrase, which was frequently used by my parents and grandparents. When I was in school I used to think: Um no, I wish this year would go by even more quickly so that I can finally enjoy my summer holidays. It was only until after I graduated that I found myself thinking more and more often: “Where has the time gone?”
Since this post is in collaboration with ICE watch, it is not only an opportunity for you to win one of their watches (see the end of the post for details) but also for me to reflect on the concept of time a bit.
This last year feels like it has just flown by. Wasn’t New Years just a few months ago? It seriously feels like 2017 was the shortest year of my life. Admittedly the feeling that time has just been running through my hands like sand, scares me. Before I know it, I will be 30 and the last years of my life will just be a blur of undefined moments.
I want to make every year, every month, every day and every moment count. I don’t want to wait to pursue my dreams. I don’t want to wake up with regret one day, wishing I had “lived” more. No. I want to enjoy these moments fully. I want to soak them up, be present and cherish them. I want to enjoy each moment consciously and not through a smartphone screen.
I want to create a life, where it doesn’t matter if time feels like it is flying by because I will be able to look back at all the experiences and happy memories this time has brought me.
This might sound harsh, but it is true: you don’t know when your time is running out, nor will you ever get another shot at this life you are currently experiencing. Make the minutes worth living and the days worth remembering.
