037So September begins which signifies that summer once again has not so slowly slipped away. Where did it go, that summer we looked forward to after the brutal winter that preceded it?

Oh, there were some good times, a concert or four in the park, a trip to the beach, a baseball game, a wedding, a blockbuster movie, a road trip, and poof, it’s gone.

I’ve always had this time space continuum thing. Why are we in the moment we’re in when we’re in it?

What did we do when we were faced with the challenge of the bad moment? What was the sequence of events that led to it being a bad moment? How could it have been different if one thing changed?

From time to time, you get this day that seemed like it would never end and it was horrible, but you got through it and were stronger for it.

Same for the good moments. Sometimes the best things happen when we don’t expect them. As the Talking Heads sang, “And you may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?” Maybe it’s 1.21 gigawatts of power.

On occasion you get this day that’s sooo good that you wished would never end. But it does. And you hope you sufficiently captured the moment to make it a lasting memory!

Often times we hear people say:

“I can’t wait until Friday.”
“Boy this has been a long day, I wish it was over.”
“I can’t wait for tomorrow.” Even Annie loves ya, tomorrow. It’s only a day away.

Got me to thinking about how we should cherish each moment of the day whenever it happens and not wish away time.

Where does the time go? Where did the time go? Where will the time go? What will you do with your time? Will you wish it away?

Because at the end, we all wish we had more time.
