This week doesn’t seem to have enough time in it! Oh wait. It always has the same amount of time. It’s just the speed at which I’m trying to process and the amount of data and things to do I’m trying to get done is greater than the time allotted in which to process and produce! There’s no change in the speed of time’s passing, its quantity or its impact. It’s just me!

No matter what I feel about time and its many facets, it only has one speed. It only is what it is.

I had my blog all planned for this morning. I was going to write about a first, a never experienced by me event — sharing the podium yesterday with an Olympic athlete.

But now, that will have to wait until tomorrow because my computer has taken advantage of the time of day and is backing itself up and doing all sorts of internal tasks to take care of itself — which is slowing down everything I do.

Yup. there’s that time thing again. Even though the speed of time has not changed, I am feeling the pressure of how quickly it is being consumed. I have an early morning meeting today and have to be out of the house by 6:45. And then, an all day training session — and still a list as long as my arm to complete before C.C. and I head west for the Okanagan for four days of r’n r and wedding planning.

So… bet you want to know more about the Olympic moment of my day yesterday.

You’ll just have to pop back in tomorrow to read all about it!

But I will tell you, it was inspiring and humbling and fascinating too!

And as to time’s speed of movement — time’s got nothing on an Olympic speedster!

Yup. That’s the tease and the clue. There’s lots of speed involved in this athlete’s sport and now there’s lots of time for you to ponder who it might be!

For now, I’m off to spend a day savouring each  moment, no matter how fast, or slow I think time is passing. Because, no matter what I’m thinking, time’s pace is steady and its beat strong.

Have an amazingly awesome day and may you find time, no matter where you’re at or what you’re doing, to savour the moment and cherish each breath you take.

And may you always…. Breathe in Love. Exhale Gratitude.  And again…. Breathe in….

I believe in wonder. I believe we are all magnificent beings of divine beauty. I believe we can make a difference in this world, through every act, word, thought. I believe we create ripples with everything we do and say and want to inspire everyone to use their ripple to create a better world for everyone. I'm grateful you're here.
