The Ageing Process

Where does time go?

I cannot believe that we are already more than 250 days into this year and with the weather being more than a bit of a damp squib lately, it certainly does not feel as though we had much of a summer.

In many senses, it still feels as though it is Spring and we have merely seen the reset button pressed. This is something that would make sense to me but it is not true, what is true is that we are more than halfway through.

What is true is that I feel exhausted. Writing this after a weekend catch-up with some uni friends and I am drifting in and out of sleep. Looking through my sleep in FitBit I am not surprised as I am averaging six hours per day of sleep, which is about an hour short of what I need.

I am 34 years of age, not 24 years of age and as much as I would love to start again and have another decade back on to my life, it is not going to happen. We are all provided with a set amount of time for which to achieve what we want to from this life, whether that is raising a family and building a career, to travelling around the world.

We are only provided with a short amount of time and to get the most from it we all need to take a step back at times. We need to prioritise what is important but to do that we need to ensure that we have a proper process behind us and for me…
