Our April Topic of Conversation is continuing to explore the concept of time ~ Is Time Running Out?
Time can be detrimental to our inner contentment. Bernadette shares in her comment: “…..‘time’ has been the enemy, and the body suffers from the stress of rushing to get somewhere...”
What initially could have been done easily and gently has now been moved into the ‘urgent’ category. When we feel ‘pushed for time’ we’ll often feel stressed and anxious about the looming deadline. This heightened state of tension generally means we will rush the job, reducing our level of enjoyment in the task and diminishing the overall quality of the project.
This common dilemma can affect us in many areas of our life. It can be as simple as not returning emails, or more complex as in not doing our homework and having it build up to a point of overwhelm.
A more insidious way this can grab us can be in our elder years where we might begin to feel that time is running out to do ‘something’ - perhaps it’s that special thing that we’ve wanted to do for years and not found the space or courage to do it.
On the Wisdom of Elders page, Sandra’s article ‘Is Time Running Out?’ is a fascinating peek into her experiences and ponderings around the subject of time.
We welcome your valuable insights and invite you to share with us anything you have noticed about how time affects yourself and/or those around you. Do you feel supported by time or does it impede your inner calm?
