Time matters

I wrote this for Ashley Nixon’s blog, she is a third level student from the U.S.A. Her blog is cool and fun.

She also did a guest post on my blog here.

Here is an extract from what I wrote form her blog: 

“I wish it was Friday,” this was my constant wish when I was in school. Then, when I was in college it was; “I wish it was rag week* already.” In my twenties it changed as my friends got engaged, I would wish on their engagement rings; “I wish I was grown up enough to get married.” Before I knew it I was in my thirties, working in a job I detested, in a city I hated, with people I would not even break bread wishing; “I wish I could retire.”

My life – up to a few months ago – was spent with me was wishing it away. Of course the TV helped. At the end of a school, college, work day I would numb it all by watching some TV.

    Wishing your life away, hmmm, for the most part, I wish I had more time, it all rushes in too fast – but great post! 🙂


  3. I love how naturally you write and about things that are relevant to us all. Yes, you are absolutely right about wishing our lives away and I was definitely guilty of that in my younger years. I am in my fifties now and don't know where all the years have gone. Like you I have found a creative outlet in writing which is something I had never thought about up until Christmas last year and now here I am blogging on a daily basis from a number of sites including the one that is closest to my heart which is my newly created Spirit Whisperer website.

    There are however only two writers I have found interesting enough to subscribe to their blog and you were the first. The other one is Aleta Edwards who is a psychologist in USA but unlike all the others I have read she, like you, is down to earth and writes from the heart. Thank you Michelle.
