Thursday Thoughts: Universal Time

universeSince I was bitching about Daylight Savings Time this week, this little nudge from the Universe sort of made sense. I still hate DST. My normal wake-up-functional morning wake-up call comes about 7:30 Central Standard Time. Even when I’ve been up late or up in the middle or up early because of my BFF Insomnia, around about 7:30, my brain switches on. Words make sense. I can pour a cup of coffee and actually get it to my mouth for a swallow. But with this Spring Forward shit? Yeah…it’s 8:30 DST. That means most of my morning has poofed before I’m ready to get to work. I don’t like it. I’m slow. My brain feels like sludge.

But anyway, the Universe, in its infinite wisdom came along to remind me of this:

If you take your time, Silver, you’ll have more of it.

And if you love each day, Silver… actually, it doesn’t matter what the consequences are, huh? They won’t be any sweeter than you in love with each day.

Ignoring my earlier tirade, the message here is to do it right the first time. Don’t rush. Stop and smell the roses. Be happy. And yeah, I am happy–even if the time change makes my grumpy–that I have one more day to do, see, be, and love each day.

What do you love about today?

    I wish they would leave the DST the way it is now. No switching back to winter hours. I like more daylight.

    And right now I’m happy I’m able to write and do what I love. I’m so thankful for that. Even if I only sell a handful, I’m grateful. I’m happy for the warmer weather.

    I’m extremely happy I have friends like you, Silver. *hugs*

  2. I read somewhere yesterday that Missouri is talking about keeping it at this time, but even if it passes, they won’t start it until 2017. Why does it take two years to implement a cessation of something? No clue.

    The universe is profound today. The best thing about today so far is that it isn’t Friday and I have two days to finish whipping this book together for my editor. (Rather than the one day I thought I had when I woke up this morning thinking it was Friday.) I got a whole extra day in the blink of an eye! Yay!

    Time change is kicking my butt! I am tired and irritable! It doesn’t help when the work place is in a province that doesn’t change their clocks – makes me even more confused and with an extra hour in the morning waiting for them to open if I have questions or issues! Carp, carp, carp!!

    Great message from The Universe – I have experienced that slowing down of time when I stop and breathe and enjoy. Must remember to do that!
