When did time actually begin?

Such is Fandango’s Provocative Question this week.
You can forget about dinosaurs and the Big Bang Theory from me. IMO it all depends on your perspective.
So often we see reports of extremes ‘since records began’ only to discover that such things weren’t actually recorded until a few years previously.
My past is peppered with errors of judgement, wrong partners, financial crises, stupidity, and missed opportunities because I was not prepared to take a chance or I didn’t fully understand.
In amongst all that though is a lot of happy times, a late career, fostering, and vital lessons learned about myself, how people saw me, and how I rebuilt my life after my breakdown in the late 1980s.

When did time begin? As I answered in Rory’s post which instigated Fandango’s question today, time began for me on May 10th 1989 around 7.20pm.
It was the day I met Hubby, though neither of us had any idea things would turn out the way they have.
Whatever happened before didn’t matter. It couldn’t be changed, so why dwell on it?
What was important was that on that day we found the beginnings of something to build on that went beyond friendship and incorporated trust, honesty, loyalty, respect and devotion on both sides.
We have our ups and downs like everyone else but our time together has been full of learning curves, fun, joy and laughter. Even through times of great sorrow and when the chips were down, we were there for each other and have been all the time we’ve been together.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  3. That was the beginning of your personal reckoning of time. But time has always been. We began to measure about 10,000 years ago but it was always there. Our personal time is a different measure. The ins and outs, ups and down of our lives. Our special time. The good and bad time. But the time was there. We just like to slice and dice it to suit our needs.
