Re-Gearing?

Time seems to have a way of being filled whether I get anything done or not.
I’m not sure what’s changed. In part I’ve slowed down from the pace I kept while working. I can feel a great difference in my energy level and it’s wonderful.
I’m not rushed. I sleep better, enjoy my food more, and I get more out of a rest break now than I did when back when I needed breaks more.
But my energy level has slowed. Perhaps it’s because I’m not pressed for time and can remain in a lower gear. That’s okay, but it seems as though the day passes even more quickly than it did.

Is this perception a function of age? Or is something happening in the Universe that has caused time to redefine itself?

Does anyone else feel this way? Is time acting odd for you, too?

My days get filled somehow, yet when I look back over them it seems as though I haven’t done anything. I like the slower pace most of the time, but now that I’ve noticed it I find yet slightly upsetting.

Perhaps I’m gearing back up for something. I hope so. I can’t see what it is now, but I’m sure it’ll be exciting.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I feel like I'm working full steam, but the day flies by and I still haven't gotten to everything.

By the way, one thing I've added to my day is a version of your hour-a-day on my old abandoned novel-in-progress. You and Dawn and Thomma Lyn seem to have inspired me to pick it up again.

I've set a minimum of a half hour, because I'm having trouble even finding that, but I've actually started back in on it and am finding it really satisfying. I realize I need to have fiction-writing back in my life again. I'm hoping to figure out a way to get the blog under control and expand that to an hour.

Thanks so much for that!

Good for you, Crabby. Glad to learn you're back at the WIP.
And good luck controlling your blog!

Something has happened to the universe. It evolves and changes, despite people's perception it is static and predictable. Aren't you glad you aren't? :)

I do love the way you see the possibilities in everything, Leah, and I suspect that you're right. You are gearing up for something.

Time has stood still for me this week, but I think that is entirely to do with the slow-paced class I'm in.

Thanks Seraphine.
The Universe is constantly changing. And yes, I'm glad that I am too.

I know the feeling, Travis.
