No one ever has the answer to the question: "Where does the time go?" As if it really could go somewhere. And why do we say it is so elusive? As if we really could capture it. And, why do we say that time flies by? As if it really could fly.
But, it did seem to go. And, it does seem elusive. And it did seem to just fly by.
One thing we know for sure, is that time waits for no one. So, whether you are ready for it or not (and who ever is anyway?), here comes 2015 rolling in.
I'm not one to do resolutions, but I do set goals throughout the year-not saving it for the new year. It's a work in progress. One of the ones that I keep trying to work on is to practice being more silent and living with silence. Not easy to do in a household, but I try to consciously make it a point to not play music or have the TV on for periods of time. As I said, it's a work in progress and I have to continually make myself aware to do this consciously. The nice thing about this kind of practice is that your mind learns to become more settled, more quiet. Falling asleep at night doesn't take an eternity like it used to. I think making silence be a part of your everyday life is a good thing-even if you are in the midst of raising children-it's a good thing. They learn by example and I think it's one of the best gifts one can pass along.
"When peaceful silence lay over all, and when night had run half way her swift course, down from the heavens, from the royal throne, leapt your all-powerful Word. –Book of Wisdom 18:14-15"
May the ringing in of the New Year be a safe, joyful and happy one for you.
Happy New Year!
