And in a blink, my time here in France is almost over. Where did the time go? Why does time go so fast?
Aging does get one thinking about time and what remains. I feel as though every moment must count. I don’t want to be on my death bed regretting anything. I have learned from my mistakes and feel I am living a pretty full life. I am grateful for this traveling life my husband’s job affords us and for my love of writing, a pretty portable job, which I am at this moment regretting I have not done enough of while here. Oh wait, no regrets. So I was sort of writing because I did a lot of research….in patisseries and brassieres, wine tasting and lots of sight seeing, and a little bit of shopping, all which I can use in my memoir someday. Right? I also went on short excursions with my husband. He visited his clients, and I did more research. Really important research. Read the list above.
Seriously though, I have seen a little portion of the world that gives me an appreciation for a different culture, and a greater understanding of my own, and for all of this I am extremely grateful. I have enjoyed every minute of my time here.
It would be hard at this point to look back on my life with any regret. There are things I wish had been different, there are times I wish I had chosen another path, embarrassments, and moments of unkindness or ignorance which I would have liked to have had the wisdom to make different, but instead, I have the ability to look back and see what I have learned and how distinct my choices are now, and how much I have grown in spirit and mind. I have the ability every single day to choose how I will live, how I will deal with adversity, how I will treat others, how and what I will learn, and what my attitude will be in all of this.
Time just flies. It really does. I have no doubt you are feeling it too. Yes? And unfortunately, I think social media makes time go even faster because it is so easy to be sucked into the vortex.
