I don't mean in that "there's not enough hours in the day" way. I'm thinking bigger than that.
You know, things like the big life things you want to accomplish. A big life project you haven't started yet, haven't finished yet, or, haven't even thought of yet?
Maybe it's winter coming, or a reaction to a surprise family health issue in our midst, or, maybe it's just getting older. I've been feeling a little anxious about time passing by too fast lately.
But, a conversation this week with a dying woman has given me a whole other perspective. This feeling of "time running out" is really not a bad thing. If you can accept and embrace it, all it really means is that something is about to change. And, all we can do is prepare for that change as best we can, without knowing how it's going to turn out.
Time passing isn't about an end to be feared, it's about something different coming. It's just the sound of one door closing, and another opening.
And, that's something to be celebrated.
