Wishing the days away...

I was texting my friend this week and had a bit of a realisation – we both seem to be wishing our lives away. Are we all like this now? I constantly see people posting on Twitter and Facebook saying that they can’t wait for the weekend or the next big event in their life (birthday, holiday, Christmas etc).

As I’ve gotten older the years have flown by. How am I in my late 20s already? It doesn’t feel long ago that I was planning my 18th birthday. I feel like the older I get, the faster the years go.

In the past few years, mainly since I graduated, I have tried to make the best use out of my time. Years went by where my week days (and a lot of weekends) were spent studying and I don’t want to waste more precious time in the next few years going home from work each night and vegging out to Netflix wishing it was Friday already. A massive fear in my life is waking up one day and regretting how I spent my life. Imagine waking up at 40, at 70 even, and feeling like you’ve missed out?  I must admit that so far I’ve been very blessed in life and I’ve packed in a lot in my short years. Things that make me happy are: spending time with animals, seeing live bands, traveling and spending time with the people closest to me. I have done these things in abundance and I am very grateful for all of my fantastic life experiences – I hope to have many more of them.

On the other hand, I do occasionally catch myself (like the other day) saying ‘I can’t wait till the weekend / summer / Christmas / my holiday’ and I need to check myself. How do I prevent this? How do you prevent this? I’m not quite sure how I do it. I work a Monday to Friday job and even though I’m tired after a long days work I do try and make myself get my arse off the couch and do something productive. I try and exercise a few times a week, catch a midweek film and go to my sewing class. I won’t lie, I do enjoy a night on my arse watching the soaps too, it’s all about balance right?!

In future I want to cut down the amount I wish the days away, life is to be lived every day. On Fridays and on Tuesdays!
