Time and Life

No bottles, no machines, just time. Where does it all go.  One of the things I dislike the most is just how fast time slips away.  How long have you been sitting at your computer reading, writing, checking tweets, or watching a show. I know it was for just a moment, but that moment turned into hours. Your family has turned off the lights and long gone to bed. You are left alone. Well almost.

I have been watching everyone since I died in 2012. I peek in on my family and leave them little signs to remind them.  You know, like songs, books opened; my favorite by the way.  Then there are the mind games. You call them memories. Makes me giggle just thinking about it.

“daughter, you are doing just fine….no worries”

I know mom, thanks!

Take this post for example. The thought was placed about time standing still. Does it stand still after you have left ‘this’ world?  Believe it or not, there is an Afterlife 101 website.  Here is their answer to that very question.

It is true in that there is no time on the other side and that one does move from one experience to the other, but when you are on the other side there is no time for you are always living in the moment, in the now. There is no past and no future on the other side. You are thoroughly enjoying the instant you are in and all things “past” and “future” exist in the now.

For me, the older I got the faster time seemed to slip away. When I was 20 there was enough time to everything dreamt, and then some. In my 50’s time was literal and by the time I hit my 80’s a day concluded in an hour.

Enjoy the time you have with your family. Don’t waste a moment because someday you will wake up with wrinkles, your kids will be grown, and all you will have is an hour. I wanted to do so much. Guess I will have to come back one more time!

Wishing you enough; J Price Higgins
