So a friend told me yesterday something interesting about the passing of time.
We were looking back and saying how quickly it all goes…
I said, “Like the blink of an eye!”
He then told me this:
“Time is like the speed of a automobile.
Your age is how fast the car is going.
So for a child of 10-years old, the car is going 10 miles an hour…and it feels too slow.
But for an adult of 60-years old, the car is going 60 miles per hour…too fast–in this case, 5 miles over the speed limit.
The older you get the faster the whole thing goes by.”
I told him how much I liked this explanation.
And finished by saying, that in the end, we should just have good memories of it all. 😉
