Today I was reminded by one of the many apps on my cell phone that "time" is moving way to fast. See the app that reminded me of this is called "Timeshop." I got an alert that it was ready to show me all my previous postings that occurred on this day- 1 year, 2 years and so on. Well, of course I looked at the alert to see what it had come up with. As I was viewing the app it hit me that this app is reminding me how fast time is flying by me. I was sitting there at my desk (yes I work full time currently as a means for financial stability).. which is an added reminder and guilt all on it's own.
Anyways, there I was looking at the pictures from the various years- all of my daughter. Seeing all the amazing, wonderful moments and milestones when all of the sudden wham the overwhelm sense of sadness and guilt washing over me. My mind raced to all the moments I worked and missed watching her grow up or how fast time as gone by in a blink of an eye. It was a moment of reflection and wonder. The pain of this knowledge weighing down upon my heart. It's not the first time that I have felt this or realized that the cycle of life is moving fairly quickly. How many times have you felt this? I know that I feel it more often than I care to admit sometimes.
However, at the end of feeling, this sadness and crushing guilt, I realized that even through life is moving around us at light speed sometimes, it's those little moments that truly matter. It's the moments that our hearts connect to those around us. It's the moments that we stand still and watch as life moves and changes. That it's okay to feel the lost of those moments. That it's okay to look back.. Just as long as we remember that there are new moments awaiting in the present to be experienced and witness to...
That no matter what life will continue to cycle..
