It’s all about perspective.
Patience is the ability to countdown before you blast off. ~ Anon
I’m not a patient person no matter what the horoscopes say about my sign. They all lie. I’m an instant gratification kind of gal. I know there is something to be said about savoring the moment, blah, blah, blah.
Today is October 1st, exactly 2 months from our fly date. Now I know that two months can seem far away or very close depending on the perspective that one takes. I need to find a balance in order to keep my perspective straight. We have 8 weeks or 60 days left in Montreal. That’s not a lot of time considering what needs to be done: people to see, food to eat, and favorite dessert places to go to, etc, etc. Time is going to fly!
Now although October is generally a beautiful month, with the change of colors, it’s also a cold, wet, damp month. Have I told you how much I hate being cold?! Actually, hate isn’t a strong enough word. So as I begrudgingly put on heavier sweaters and woolen socks I keep telling myself that I only have just 2 months left. One month is the equivalent to 43 200 minutes. So in essence, the next time I’ll be really warm will be 86 400 minutes from today.
My only consolation is to drink some really good hot chocolate. And it just so happens I know the perfect place. Juliette and Chocolate, anyone?
