Yesterday, I felt like I needed to rush everything. I went to my monthly art group meeting last night, so I lost a little work time, and I ran out of time in replying to comments on the blog.
The experience of feeling like I’m always running out of time got me thinking. This morning, as I searched for an idea for the daily doodle, I found the inspiration for this idea. What if I pretend I have all the time in the world, no matter what I’m working on? When working under pressure, I have a tendency to always be thinking about the other things I need to do. But what if I simply focus on the one task at hand and forget about all the other things that are waiting for my attention. When the time comes to work on those other things, I can spend all my energy where it’s needed. This idea sounds good at the moment, but only time will tell if it actually works!
In certain metaphysical realms, it’s said that we can actually step out of “time” because it’s an illusion anyway! 🙂 I like what you’ve done here, and think I’ll practice this myself. It’s very “in the Now”…being present with whatever we’re doing. I’m a big one for multi-tasking. This might be what I need to help me feel like I’ve got “more time on my hands than I know what to do with” vs. “It’s WHAT day???” LOL
Hi Janece, I think so much of how we feel comes down to attitude and how we go about tackling things. This idea is going to be a challenge for me.

True! Or that there is no time at all. Funny how time is elastic. Speeds up and slows down depending on what is going on at the time. 😉
Hi Rita, It is amazing how our perception of time changes. I don’t think time can move any slower than when you’re waiting for something. Thank you for your thoughts.
Cool perspective…and doodle!

Does anyone ever feel like they have enough time in a day, week, month, year or even a lifetime, to accomplish all that we plan and/or dream to do? And as you get older the relevance of time, can really hit home hard. But moment by moment, things get done (and there’s no sense in worrying about those things that don’t) … tomorrow is another day.
Hi Bonnie, That’s right – tomorrow is another day, and things somehow manage to wait, or if they get impatient, they move on to tap on someone else’s shoulder!
I do know what you mean. Time flies. Thanks for your insight.
Hi Mariasgrandma, Thanks for commenting. Time is going supersonic on me this week!
I love anything with clocks..rubber stamps, paper, stencils. You can use it in almost anything. My daughter has no concept of time, thinks she does have all the time and then complains as to where it went. I, on the other hand, do not have enough of it, and am always trying to get as much as I can, when I can. TFS another wonderful sketch.
