Time to Process the Time

"Time is the most undefinable yet paradoxical of things. The past is gone, the future is not come, and the present becomes the past even while we attempt to define it, and, like the flash of lightning, at once exists and expires." 
Charles Caleb Colton
 

When it's Monday, I wish today was Friday.
When it's January, I wish February to come faster.
When it's just September, I wish Christmas was here.
When it's only the 15th, I wish tomorrow would be the 26th.
When it's only 9.00 in the morning, I wish the clock ticked faster and hit 6.00 in the evening.
When I just start a new project, I wish I was already in the midst of wrapping it up.
When I was engaged, I wished to be married already.
When I had registered my marriage, I wish that the wedding celebrations had actually taken place too.
When I was separated from my loved one, I wished he was here with me every day and night.

And the wish list goes on and on.

I am impatient. These days, I just like to fast forward literally almost everything in my life. I give pressure to myself despite the plenty of time I have. I force myself to meet my own deadlines which sometimes not really that urgent nor necessary. I ignore the joy of being in the process to get to my destination.  I forget how nature works wonder and fixes everything when the time is just right. I am not a happy person before I really get there.

So, I think I really need to slow down now and listen to the wise men who said "There is no better time than right now to be happy. Happiness is a journey, not a destination".

I need to try best not to be too carried away with the 'extra-rush' culture here, where actually the end result would be not much different had we run in normal pace. Let nature works. Just don't force a woman to deliver the baby before nine months, like some people remark.

Just enjoy the journey. Please remember that. *reminding myself*
