I apologize for being AWOL for the last couple of months, but as I am sure you all know, life tends to get in the way. Between business and family obligations and taking my never-ending courses to better myself, I haven’t had much time to spend on my writing here.
It seems to get harder and harder to find enough time in the day to do everything that needs to be done. Why is it that at the end of the day, I am so tired I can barely keep my eyes open. Then as soon as my head hits the pillow to try to get a good night’s rest, I can’t. Suddenly my head starts buzzing with all these ideas and thoughts of what I can do better on the projects I am working on.
Some nights, I have very creative and lovely dreams. Where do they go when I wake up? I can remember a bit here and there, but never the full dream. On many ocassions, I have been awakened by my dreams and remember feeling things like, I can’t believe that happened, or wow, if that were only real. But as soon as my head clears, the dream clears as well.
I wish someone would invent a mind recorder, so that we can record all the thoughts we are having when we are “trying to sleep” and be able to play them back when we are wide awake, to retrieve all those great and wonderful thoughts and put them into action. Most times, I can’t even remember what I what I was thinking.
On many nights when I can’t sleep, I just give up and go downstairs to my office and start trying to implement some of the ideas that I come up with. Or at least try to jot down some notes. The funny thing is that when I wake up the next morning, most of the wonderful ideas I thought of the night before, are pretty much gone or don’t seem so wonderful.
And why is it that as we get older, time flies by faster and faster?
I remember when I was a young girl in school at the end of the of the term thinking, “I have to wait until September to go back to school? That is such a long time to wait.”
Now when I think of the time between June until September, I feel like, “Oh my goodness, September will be here before I blink.”
Oh to be a young girl again with no worries, responsibilities or sense of time.
