What Does It Mean When Time Seems to Be Moving Faster?

You sit and look at the clock embracing the time you are investing in this moment. With a positive intention, you welcome all that is coming your way understanding that it’ll be done soon. You keep yourself distracted from the boredom you feel by doodling on a piece of paper. As you feel entertained, you look at the clock to count down the last remaining minutes of your time commitment. Like a horse kick to the stomach you realize it’s only been 5 minutes! In frustration, you think to yourself, “This is going to be a long and dreadful day.”

We’ve all had those times where we felt that time stood still. If time is moving at all, it seems to be moving backwards! This creates such emotional agony. It brings forth feelings of anxiety, impatience, and frustration. We’d rather be anywhere but here. The sound of the clock ticking away makes you feel like a ticking time bomb ready to explode!

Sticks N Stones Will Break Bones…

“I’m rubber, you’re glue! Everything you say bounces off of me and comes right back to you!”

This is something that my sister and I constantly recited back to each other when we were kids. This line alone was what saved us from even the cleverest rebuttal. All responses were no match for this one-liner! Aside from being a great way to have the last word, this line itself carries some major truth.

Cause You Ain’t Getting Younger or Prettier…

Have you ever stared at something so long that the lines and shapes start to disappear or change? I remember spending so much time in front of the mirror trying to make my nose a little smaller, my legs a little longer and my butt-chin a little more shallow.

“I hate when you offer someone a sincere compliment on their mustache and suddenly she’s not your friend anymore.”

How Do You Define Happiness?

No matter what we do, we all seek to be happy in some way. Many people define happiness by the level of success they find in their lives. The manner of how we define our success is just as different as our methods toward realizing it. Happiness is the ultimate success! No matter how you define happiness, no other understanding will satisfy you more than realizing that it comes from nothing.

“Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get.” – Dale Carnegie

The idea of happiness coming from nothing brings much confusion to the mind. Confusion is a blessing that leads to an understanding of something new. Much of our stress comes from the expectations we have toward certain events in our lives. When things don’t pan out in the manner we had planned, we become emotional. The key is to abandon those expectations and allow nature to take its course. When you embrace the nothingness, the universe has no limitations as to what it can provide you.
