“Just as time knew to move on since the beginning,
And the seasons know exactly when to change,
Just as kindness knows no shame,
Know through all your joy and pain,
That I’ll be loving you always “
As, Stevie Wonder
Today, I sang this song in the shower 🙂
“You can have it all. Just not all at once.”
I realise I’ve been a bit quiet on here recently; there’s so much I want to write about and I will be doing it soon, just as soon as some time frees up for me! Watch this space!
“Be wise in the use of time. The question in life is not “how much time do we have?” The question is “what shall we do with it?””
Anna Robertson Brown
Recently, it has struck me how little time I have left in my second year at university and although my Year Abroad is finally starting to feel exciting and real, I am also really sad at the thought of having to say goodbye to so many people who I have got to know and make bonds with. The biggest fear for me is never seeing them again, or not remaining as close – they’ll have all left by the time I return – so the only thing for it, for me, is to make the most of what remains. As I seem to tell myself often on this blog (and in real life), you only truly regret the things you didn’t do.
“There is an immeasurable distance between late and too late.”
Sometimes, I put things off so much but past experience has taught me, if i can, to avoid the ‘too late’ time frame in future; it’s not an easy place to be.
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”
This is something that has come back to me time and time again recently.
“Oh Time! The beautifier of the dead, adorer of the ruin, comforter and only healer when the heart hath bled.”
I think people underestimate how important time is. Whether you have enough time to do something, too little time and miss something, give enough time to get over something or use your time to have something, its frustratingly fascinating. We’re allocated time in the same way – by the second and the minute- but the time of each individual couldn’t be more different. I think that time has the ability to make something or destroy something.
“Truth is the daughter of time.”
Sir Francis Bacon
Most things are usually solved or reconciled with time. Time and waiting it out is the annoying part though.
