When I was a kid, it felt as though time passed by excruciatingly slowly. I was forever looking forward with great anticipation to something or other… Christmas, birthdays, summer vacation, growing up… and to me, these events were an agonizing lifetime away.
Now, as an adult, I wish I still had that perception. Though time actually passes at the same speed as it always did, it feels as though my days, weeks, months, and even years fairly race past in a frenzied blur of happenings and changes.
As a child, I longed for the future. Now, the future can wait.
