I’m sitting at Heathrow airport, and it is midnight. I have been here since about 7PM and my flight leaves at noon. I am extremely excited to go home!
Challenge #208, July 27, 2011: One of the things I dislike the most is when people wish their time away. “I can’t wait for this shift to be done;” “When will today be over?” “Can it just be Friday yet?” My Facebook feed is always full of these types of updates. We never know how much time we have left, and even if we did, shouldn’t we be trying to appreciate every bit of it? It is hard for me to not to want it to be 9 hours later right now—but I shouldn’t. I am sitting here, messing around on the internet, sending emails I need to send, sitting in a comfortable chair, drinking tea—not much to complain about, and definitely not time I should be wishing away. So this is the challenge for today: Don’t wish your time away. Appreciate what is happening now—time will pass at the same rate either way, you might as well try to enjoy the present–it’ll be gone before you know it.
