It is a common perception that, as we age, time passes faster and faster. We know this isn't true; time doesn't change but for unnoticeable milliseconds over the centuries as the Moon pulls away from the Earth. However, if we're not careful, the days ~ and years ~ can seemingly pass in a blink. It can feel like we are at Time's mercy. It got me thinking about one of my favorite topics: our power to make choices. What if something as simple as a choice, as simple as forming a new habit, a new perspective, could actually help slow down time? Being aware. Paying attention. Enjoying the moments. Maybe it is we who need to slow down.
