Today’s post should probably have gone up before Halloween as all the photos are of pumpkins, but in my book it’s still O.K. to be Autumnal until Bonfire Night has passed. Also, this post isn’t really about pumpkins… it’s about TIME and how quickly it seems to be moving all of a sudden. I genuinely feel like it was still Summer basically a minute ago and now we’re plowing into November and Christmas is nearly upon us.
When I was younger people always told me that time sped up as you grew older. Of course I never really believed this, as you never do when you’re a kid, but this last year has flown by at such an unimaginable speed I feel rather taken aback. I have so much I want to achieve yet none of the time to do it. Stacks of notebooks litter my desk with ideas scrawled throughout them but only the few make it into my every day.
I want to bake more. I want to create more. I want to make more.
I miss empty weekends and spontaneous projects. I feel like I spend half my life saving wonderful looking projects on Pinterest that I never get around to making or dreaming up exciting gift ideas I can never achieve. My mind is constantly on, ideas never failing me. It’s just finding the time. I kind of wish I’d known what I was passionate about when I was bit younger. I could have started sooner and these days it’s easy to feel like everybody has some sort of head start on me. Even now I sometimes struggle with exactly pinning down what my priorities are.
Of course, we are currently trying to buy a house and plan a wedding, which has a lot to do with my lack of time I’m sure… and I wouldn’t give up these ‘projects’ for the world. The wedding particularly, is really giving me something to stick my teeth into. Plus, I cannot wait to get going with my interior ideas once we’ve finally moved into our first home. But I also often wonder whether I really can have everything I wish for in this future life? Can I bake every weekend? Will I find the time to create my own cushions?
Who knows, I suppose. I may not be the superwoman I aspire to be, but I’m getting there and it’s always important to remember that.
Hope this wasn’t too much of a boring read. I think I just wanted to get my thoughts out there really and what’s the point of having a blog if I can’t do that every now and then?
