Happy New Year!

Happy New Year And so it begins….2018.

Weird:

365 days, nothing we can do about changing that, nor altering the passage of each day.

Each day will unfold and last exactly the same length of time, despite our sometimes feelings to the contrary – remember how long school days felt when you were only 9, and how short days feel now when you have too much to do and there are ‘not enough hours in the day’?

There are the same number of hours as there always have been, but perhaps we try to pack an unrealistic amount into them. Or are already mentally on to the next hour before the current one has fully ticked through.

As this year begins, we have another set of 365 days in which to choose to live as if each day were the most important. I recently watched the wonderful Richard Curtis film About Time again – oft watched, a favourite of mine not least because Bill Nighy is in it and I do love him so.

Anyway.

Without giving any spoilers, there is this simple and profound truth expressed by the main character:

I just try to live every day as if I have deliberately come back to this one day….to enjoy it as if it were the full final day, of my extraordinary ordinary life. We’re all travelling through time together….every day of our lives, all we can do is do our best to relish this remarkable life.”

I give you that thought at the start of this New Year – to go through these next 362 days seeking to relish each one, and celebrate the extraordinary, ordinary lives we each get to live.

Happy New Year!
