I’ve had a magical summer, although it did seem to pass all too quickly.
Like a fling with a seductive temptress she came and went with a bang.
As Einstein said, “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”
Seasons change, things come and go, and no matter how hard we try we can’t hold onto the past.
But, then again, of course we can.
A neat trick is to get in the habit of running mental movies where you can sit back, close your eyes, and relive your best moments.
Like hanging out with your school mates laughing telling stories. Or sitting with your spouse flicking through wedding photos. Or imagining yourself in a theater watching the greatest times of your life on a big screen, inside your mind you have an album of greatest hits you can play every day.
Happy endings also get us humans grasping.
When things are good we hold onto time tighter than an aging supermodel. Yet the hands of time are slippery and the more we grasp the easiest it is to lose our grip.
Those good times are right there in your mind and while you enjoy mental movies of your greatest hits you can also float into your future and see more headed your way.
Seasons change and time most certainly passes all too quickly, but in your mind you can live every moment as if it is happening today.
