What is time?

There is something to be said for the passing of time. When you think about it in the moment, you IMG_0962cant help but think that life is flying by without mercy. But when you stop, take a second and breath you realise you have all the time in the world. I am a victim of this, I get so worked up about how fast life is flying by and how ‘I should have achieved this by now.’ However, when I stop and look out at the forever moving sea I suddenly realise: I am only 21, my whole life is in front of me and to be honest its pretty amazing what I get to do with it on a daily basis. I am currently sat in the sun on a balcony in Spain looking out at the sea writing down my thoughts. While only a week ago I was driving round Sweden producing a documentary, while looking forward to working with one of Britain’s top TV companies for a week. And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

These are all things I have created for myself in just one short year of my life. Imagine what I could do with five! I think what I am trying to say, is something I have said many times before in a couple of different ways. That is that life is not scripted, it never will be – a path you think you might be taking will change, alter and become a vast space where your life will simply happen.

Leonardo DaVinci once said ‘Time stays long enough for anyone who will use it.’ My interpretation of this is that if you use your time well, create, achieve and strive to complete your goals, you will always have time. Think about this, every moment you waste on a negative thought or moaning that you don’t have enough time (as I do on a daily basis) is a moment that could be spent achieving that thing you never have time to do.

Where do you feel you are in life? Is time flying by? Should you be somewhere you are not? These  are all questions I have asked… now I ask, does it really matter? When it all comes down to it, I don’t know where life is going or where I will be in one year or even in five. In someways I don’t want to know. The mystery and surprise of every decision I make is exciting, and where that will lead, who knows? For now I will just continue to drink coffee, think wisely and chase rainbows, it has seemed to work for me so far.
