ACK!! What time is it?? Am I late?
I’m sure you’ve all been there before. You find yourself in shock and near panic at the sudden, startling discovery that you’ve:
- Lost all track of time;
- Forgotten about an important appointment, meeting, or class; or,
- All of the above.
Wide-eyed, with your heart racing madly and pounding its way through your chest, you dig through your pockets, purse, or backpack for a watch, phone, or sundial—anything to tell you how fast you’ll have to go to get where you’re supposed to be or how profusely you’ll have to apologize once you finally do get there. Unable to find a timepiece nearby, you dash away to find the nearest clock and scramble for a plausible excuse…
This isn’t one of those times! You’re right here, reading these words. Your hair probably isn’t on fire. The sky most likely isn’t falling around you. And you apparently have nothing more important you need to be doing right this minute, or you wouldn’t be here. Right? So just relax.
What time is it?
Eh, who cares?
The time is NOW. Stop. Close your eyes and breathe. Fully embrace who and what you are in this remarkable and magnificent moment. Just like you, this moment is unique. It’s special. It will never be repeated again. So for this briefest moment in time, give yourself a mental “hug” and just be.
Because you’re appreciated and loved, that’s why!
Oh, and feel free to repeat as needed. Any time…any time at all!
