Dear EveryDay

Reading time: 2 – 3 minutes

Dear Everyday,

Time FliesPlease stop passing by so quickly. I am having trouble keeping up.  The days are full, but leave me feeling a bit empty as I climb into bed.  I feel like I am dutifully eating experiences that are being fed to me, while my own menu of goodies just yellows and fades, and what little I have cooked up, spoils.

I don’t know how to make you slow down. Sometimes the day drags on forever, yet when the light of sun fades to the glow of street lamps, I feel duped.  The day took forever… doing nothing.

I don’t blame you. I know the days are mine and that I am the important part of the equation.  I’m just asking that you work with me; keep me in mind. Let me catch my breath.

I am in no hurry. I can take as long as it takes to do what I want to do.  Sometimes within a few blinks, my hopeful morning too often turns into a defeated evening.  I know I got things done, and I know my experiences were valuable, but I am trying to fit in a word, edgewise.  I just want to get something done that I want to get done, not just what has to be done.

Please slow down so I can harness my inspiration and motivation into some creative projects and have something to show for it at the end of the day.

At the end of this life.

Please.

Love,

Troy
