In Germany we have a book called “Momo” where little grey man steal time and smoke it away from people who believe that they can save it.
I too think I can save some time: I exchange quick Facebook updates with deep conversations, I do an intensive work-out instead of a regular scheduled time to keep my body healthy, I check my e-mails before I get to work so that I can take it off my to-do list, I lunch while I work to save some time…….
The little ‘grey men’ smoking away my time while I desperately try to retrieve some.
But deep down, I long for relationships where you and I share life together, I long for a long walk with my husband to get the exercise I need, I want to give full attention to my e-mails and chew my meals and actually taste it.
So, enough is enough! I am getting after the ‘grey men’! I am fighting off the time thieves and learn to enjoy life to the fullest.
So tomorrow, when you see me hurry – ask me about the grey men! Maybe it reminds me that real life cannot be hurried!
