It’s been a rough weekend for me. Social media has been harder than usual. Which really sucks, what with my EXTRA HOUR and everything.
What’s to hate? An extra hour? That’s like hating your tax refund. This is time they took from you in March. THIS is the REAL time.
Switching the clocks back an hour has so many people in a foul mood. I don’t get it. I blogged about the change last year in a post titled, Fun Facts about the Fall Back. If you are one of the haters of the autumnal tradition, please read that post. It’s kind of interesting.
I didn’t get to use my hour yesterday. I’ll eke it out a minute or two at a time for a few days. I’m savoring it.
Yes, I know that’s not really how time works. But I’m sure we can agree that time is subjective. It’s a mental thing, right? An hour laughing and socializing at a diner with free coffee refills and good friends can go by in a blink of an eye. A spastically blinking eye, crying and burning from the spec of dirt that blew into it, can feel like a torturous hour.
I want you to consider that hour and what you’d do with an extra sixty minutes of time. And I want you to think positive. Thirty-six hundred seconds–to do with as you choose!
Maybe you won’t be a convert…this year. Maybe you believe this year’s hour already passed. But next time, if you consider that extra hour a good thing, maybe we can fill social media with SO MUCH JOY.
And I’m pretty sure we could ALL use more of that, ALL of the time.
