My kids love playing with water. They pouring it all over and watching it crept along the ground, filling all the nooks and crannies. They love watching it change shape depending on what container it is in. And of course how it overflows.
Time is a bit like this, filling spaces, voids, and the containers we put it in. But more often, time is the container and we or our projects expand or contract depending on it.
There is never enough time. There is always more work to do. This is why time can be a powerful focusing tool. Time can be a kind guide too, helping us to make choices about what is in and out of scope. It nudges us forward, urging us to make a choice, to dive in, to be present.
Time is a boundary and one we desperately need. Perhaps it’s time (pun intended) to embrace it.
