Fast Forward

Sometimes I feel like time is speeding by, as if set on “fast forward”. The days fly by and the year is almost over. I still haven’t been able to see people I wanted to catch up with. “Let’s aim for next week” was said months ago…

But this is not why I write this post. I feel like recently I did not really have time to talk to my husband. Or better, I did not take time out of my schedule to talk to him. I feel like the days fly by and we just do what we do and answer and talk without even talking. I want to sit down just with him and have a chat. Talk about whatever we want to talk about. Take time for each other. Appreciate each other.

I want to set the moment on “super slow” and just enjoy being in the moment with him.

Life gets so busy and sometimes totally on top of us. We have to work on it, we have to work on slowing it down and appreciate the moments.

Do you sometimes feel like life is speeding by? So you sometimes feel like you don’t get to spend quality time with your loved one(s)?

  1. I get about 3 maybe 4 hours with my husband 5 days a week. He works the night shift so he sleeps during the day and we only see him those 3 or 4 hours before he leaves for work. It’s not quality time though.

    Things often feel like they’re set on fast forward, especially this time of year. For me, anyway.

  2. I know exactly what you mean! With kids, it can be SO hard to actually have a conversation longer than 30 seconds without interruption. 🙂 We started going on date nights, about twice a month. We usually never go longer than two hours but those two hours are the best ever!

  3. Life does move at the speed of light….that we now have to concentrate and work at not letting the most simple times get by us, is tragic and true!!!! Technology and its speed has robbed us of the core of why we are here 😦

  4. I made a list at the beginning of the year with a bunch of people I wanted to see and a bunch of things I wanted to do. Then I scheduled it all in my diary and confirmed my memory creating events. Best year by far. I’ll do it again in 2015 🙂

  5. Without a doubt life speeds by. Already my son is a freshman in high school. If I blink, he’ll be in college. I treasure the time I spend with him before and after school. I also treasure the time I have to myself. The weekends offer my husband and me time with each other. We rarely go out on formal dates, preferring the intimacy of our small family at home.

    • Good to know we are not the only ones! We do go out every now and then but not on a regular base. We love spending time with our kids and it works for us. Sometimes I just want to sit down and have a little chat with my husband without being interrupted 😉 Having said that, the kids are still little but growing up fast… so those interruptions are actually sweet 😉
