Time Flys

Posted by on June 26, 2014

Funny thing abut “Time” – you can’t freeze it, you can’t turn back time and you sure can’t buy it. I am not sure what is going on but I have been on a huge personal inner journey in the last few weeks…..and I have been doing a lot of soul searching {and a lot of healing along with a lot of crying}

You see I wished my life choices was different in certain areas of my life but I can’t turn back the time to make my life different. So I have been trying to take on board that statement

“If You Can’t Change The Situation, Change The Way You Think About It”

I guess because I am getting older {Birthdays are sucky at my age!!!} I realise what is really important to my happiness. And its the one thing I can no longer have…you can’t buy it, its not “Stuff” that takes up space in our Motorhome {or stuff in a house}, its not yummy clothes or yummy food….its not anything that any one can give me.

Its Time With My Family.

The one thing that I will never ever take for granted again…and the one thing I will never ever expect anyone to understand, nor to consider. Things have changed and I have to accept it. Time to think about it differently even if I don’t want to.

I don’t have time with my Dad anymore, I kinda know where he is but I understand why he is no longer part of my life. And I respect his life choices. But if I had my time over again I would do things differently, I wouldn’t have such high expectations, I wouldn’t ask too much from him and I would appreciate what I could have.

If only I could freeze time….then I would always have my family with me!! I would have my sweet boys with me for ever. Kyle does tell me that he is never ever going to move out of home, that he wants to live with us forever….oh my sweet little man, if only that was so true.

They say a girls best friend is diamonds….well sorry but my greatest joy in life is my family. And all the diamonds in the world could never ever make up for time with them.

WISHED MY FAMILY WAS STILL THIS!

Time Fly’s By So Fast ::

So if you have little ones at home, and they are driving you nuts…if they are under your feet and they are making a lot of mess – fighting or being over the top – treasure every moment of those crazy full on days. Treasure those moments to fill your heart with memories.

Cause you will never ever have that time with them again, and you will never ever be able to freeze your time with them!

Love them more, give them more hugs….give them more what ever they ask of you….

Forget the housework, its always going to be there no matter what. Its always going to be needing to be done. But your sweet little ones arms wont always be there for a sweet hug or a sweet kiss. They wont have time for you forever.

If you have daughters – you are so damn lucky because you will have more of them when they grow up and have a family, and they will need you. They will turn to you for advice, they will need you for love and guidance.

If you have sons….treasure their mess, treasure their loud crazy ways, treasure those moments when they send your hair grey with their crazy moments, treasure their smelly socks!!!…and smile. Cause you only have them for such a short amount of their life and then they grow wings and move on.

Gosh if only someone had told me how fast Time Flys….

If Only Someone Had Told Me To Be More In the Moment.

Time wont stop for anyone. But when you are older you will have time to think back on your life. Create memories to fill your heart and to keep your loves in your heart.

So wished I had more time.

So wished my time was different with my life.

But I do know that my time is now spent differently because my two younger babies are still in my life when my older ones are gone, they teach me what is really important, they make me live in the moment.  They keep me going, and I now realise how fast they are going to grow up and move on.

Make Every Day Count.

Do You Wish You Had More Time?

Cheers

Lisa

      Oh gosh…yes bring on the Grandchildren!! Mind you my boys keep telling me they are not going to have any, sure hope that changes :)

    Wow, you and I have been on the same life vibration lately, Lisa. My heart and head has been spinning a lot the past 3-4 months with getting older, seeing the truest reality of mortality for that which I love more than anything in this world and ever have. That includes my family. Yes, that would be Phoenix. I can tell you it was a huge life changer for both him and me. For me, I’ve always known to cherish and wrap my arms around every second of every day. But, I didn’t practice it. Well, I DO NOW!!! We love all of you to pieces and do grab onto every second you have of what brings joy to your heart. Always! :)

    I know exactly what you mean Lisa. It is hard to see when you are in the midst of raising children that in years to come they will not be in your life as much as you would like. It is a sad fact of life, but hopefully grandchildren will come along one day. It is nice to see them grow up and make their way in the world though.

    So very true. I can’t believe our eldest is 21 and the littles almost 8 (in one day and a bit)
    Happy another trip around the sun.
    Except birthdays are never sucky, the more you have the longer you live :) embrace the grey and creaks !
