That’s right, blink the eye and the years go by!

 That’s what came to me at a friend’s 50th birthday party.

 It was wonderful because I met friends whom I hadn’t seen in 25 years. It was strange how they seemed to have hardly changed. I wonder if they found me the same … because, frankly, I’m that same person from 25 years ago.

Of course, I’ve gone through so much more in life. I think I’m a little wiser. And I’m a parent … that does, in many ways, change you. But I’m still me!

The years go by all too quickly. I wonder if it passes by more quickly for those in our generation. There’s no time to be bored.

There’s nothing like boredom that’ll slow down the clock.

 Our generation has all the entertainment options at our fingertips. If we’re not working, we’re being entertained.

Movies, TV shows, text messaging, the internet … now that’s one read time stealer … Facebook, computer games, smart phones and all those apps too!

Except for movies and TV shows, none of those things was available in our parents generation. So did time move slower for them?

Did they have more time to contemplate compared to us?

We “do” so much more with our time. But we should question, what is it that we’re doing?

I wonder if we have the time to stop and think. 

I said to my friend, “Now you can look forward to your 60th birthday.”

He thought I was kidding … but I meant it.

It’ll roll on by in the blink of an eye!
