How often do you hear people say, “I have so much time, it’s amazing how much I’m getting done,” or “I’m going to get to work and finish this project right now, because I can. I have the time and will feel great about it later.”
Note that even these comments involve doing things, rather than being someone, somewhere or something.
Time seems to only be scarce. Of course, it is a finite resource and that fact seems to make us nervous. “Life is short” could easily be expressed as “I am going to enjoy today”, but somehow it has become important to talk more about what we don’t have than the abundance we truly face.
Working to do things NOW and to be truly present to myself and others is on my list in 2019. Let the good times begin!
