Learning how to Discern Our Feelings

As a five-year-old little girl, the drive to town from our rural community felt like it took forever. “How much longer, Mum?” I whined. I already flipped through my picture book twice and played all my favorite songs on my Walkman. Watching out the window at the winding roads and trees, this trip seemed to take hours. In reality, the trip was barely an hour. As I grew older, the trip seemed to grow shorter. What used to feel like three hours only felt like thirty minutes. After making many six hour trips from university to home and back again, an hour was short in comparison.
