Looking Back in Time

Richard Cockrum of Shards of Consciousness talks about this notion of Time Passages. As I look back in the history of my life, there are blocks of time that I don’t really remember all that much. It was a time in my life when I was working full time, going to school full time, and partying full time (How I did it, I just don’t know...) I was constantly on the go and certainly didn’t stop to smell the roses. I was too involved in the future and what I wanted to accomplish. I was a 21-year-old with a 35-year-old mind. Things to do. People to see. Goals to accomplish. It was a big blur.

As the first week of 2007 comes to an end, I’m proud to say that my memory is getting better because I’m learning to just sloooow dowwwwnnn and savor the moment. Can I remember everything I’ve done? Sure. I took long walks, enjoyed a yummy turkey croissant sandwich, took naps every day, worked less, earned more, played around with Photoshop, and visited the library. I'm learning to make friends with mystery as well!

What have you accomplished so far in 2007? Are you working on your goals on a daily basis? Are you leaving it up to The Universe to take care of the details so you can focus on enjoying your life at this moment?
