Thoughts on Time II

I was looking back on some posts, and came across this one
  • Thoughts on Time
  • from July 2005. Almost a year and a half later, and I still relate, still feel the same way.

    "It's a bit scary, I feel like time is slipping through my fingers too quickly, and that I have nothing to show for all these months that have passed by. I'm starting to feel the pressure to "figure out my life" again, and although I know I'm young and that time isn't flying by as fast as I think, the anxiety is still present. There are so many things I want to do, and see, to give and learn, discover and feel, I fear that if I don't do it all RIGHT NOW, I may miss my chance--that time, and my life, will slip through my fingers before I realize it, slip too quickly for me to catch it.
    I want to help save the environment, inspire others to care, try new things, travel the world, give my love and fall in love, meet interesting people, overcome my fears, open my heart, raise a family, not worry about money, go on adventures, drink sunsets and breathe in the salty sea air...and so much more. Hope I have the time and opportunity to do it all..."

    I have done many things and made changes in my life since writing that, but in many ways, I feel like I'm in the same place. The pressure to "figure out my life" is coming on especially strong at this point. What will my next move be? What is the next step? It seems like a neverending process of discovery...

    1. I know this feeling recently too. I think this is what they call "life". Sucks, doesn't it??
