I read an article the other day that had a theory about why time seems to go by much faster the older we get. The theory is, that as an adult we are on autopilot so much of the time that our brain is just on standby, not really having to be aware of what we’re doing because we’ve done it before – ROUTINE! But as a kid we are constantly having new experiences, trying new things and learning everyday. And because kids are using their brains and are fully alert to what surrounds them, time seems to move by slower.
This article was addressing my greatest fear – ROUTINE! The idea of doing the same thing every day scares me more than anything else.
So to continue kicking routine the curb, never wasting any of those 86,400 seconds and ensuring those seconds go by as slowly as possible, I’ll be exploring my own backyard. As I dream of being back in Croatia, sailing or even wondering around an unknown city, I’ll keep my curiosity talking with what is just outside my door.
