I Must Confess…Timey-Wimey Stuff
A big welcome again to I Must Confess, the linkup where we can all take a deep breath and prepare to bare our souls in front of other caring and sharing fellow over-sharers!
This week’s confession prompt is all about time – good times, bad times, being on time, being perpetually late, not having enough time for yourself or the things you do to make time.
Talking about time and “timey-wimey” stuff, I must confess that I’m still buzzing from the 50th anniversary episode of Doctor Who that screened yesterday morning. I admit I did set the alarm early to watch it as it was simulcast live around the world and I managed to get up and showered in time to watch it live.
Which is a bit of a miracle as I’m not exactly known for being on time.
While I love Doctor Who and am fascinated by the whole notion of time travel, in reality I have a truly problematic relationship with time, in all it’s forms.
I’m often late, struggling to get myself and three children ready for work and for school in a timely fashion each morning. I’ve lost my ability to work out how much time to set aside to get ready so I find myself almost always late to everything. I must confess that I hate being late.
I have trouble finding time for myself. Between working 5 days a week, housework, kid wrangling and everything else that is thrown at me, I’m too exhausted to even begin to think about scraping out a few minutes for myself. It just seems a little too hard, to be worth the extra effort.
I’m in dire need of a good time. Going to my school reunion a few weeks back was good for my soul and I need to recapture those feelings of joy and fun and happiness again. I didn’t realise how much I had missed them – I think I need to make a greater attempt at being social.
I need to take my time and stop rushing. I need to savour each moment instead of just marking time until the next commitment or task.
Can I just say, that I think a lot of my issues here would be solved very easily by having a TARDIS of my own? That would be a whole lot easier than adressing the root cause of my issues with time. Which is me. Sigh.
What are your thoughts on time? Do you have a better relationship with time than I do? Could you benefit from a TARDIS? Or even better the assistance of a doctor?
You know what to do!
