Affirmation for May 23, 2011: Time Passing

Vladimir: That passed the time.Estragon: It would have passed in any case.Vladimir: Yes, but not so rapidly.- Samuel Beckett, "Waiting for Godot"
Thought of the day:
Time passing is inevitable, unstoppable, and constant. But what has always been strange about time is how quickly it goes by during our happiest moments.
While we can't offer any tips for how to slow down time, there is a way to help preserve those moments of joy. Make it a habit, when you're happy, to close your eyes and take a "snapshot" of that time. You might even want to write down in a notebook some special phrase and the date and time. It doesn't have to be anything elaborate, just an acknowledgment that good times are fleeting, and that you are experiencing a pleasant moment.
Doing this will help you relive those moments anytime you want to, even when things aren't going so well. Time may pass, but these moments are yours to keep.
Have a momentous day!
