Time is a crazy thing! When we are young, we tend to forget that it exists. When we have too much of it, we tend to ignore that it matters. When we are busy and stressed and just want to wish a day away, we tend to want it to pass more quickly. When we are healthy, we tend to think we have all the time in the world.
Have you noticed that time starts to make more sense and starts to become more precious as it starts to run out?
We tend to need more of it when it is close to running out! Like a roll of paper towel, it tends to go faster and faster toward the end!
We tend to need more of it when we are busy and just hope for an extra minute.
We tend to need more of it when we are getting older and time is all we have left!
We tend to need more of it when we are nearing the end of our vacation and the fun is about to end.
We tend to need more of it when we can’t hug our family members anymore.
We tend to need more of it when we can’t snuggle with our cats, dogs, or other furry friends anymore.
We tend to need more of it when our health is compromised.
We tend to need more of it when our loved ones have little or no time left.
We tend to need more of it when we wake up one day and realize that we have no more time left to waste.
Time is a crazy thing. No amount of wishing and hoping can bring back the time we have lost. To be young, healthy, and happy is a gift we often tend to ignore.
Time is a crazy thing. Make the best of the time you have. One day you will wake up and realize that it is too late. There is just not enough time.
Today is the day to enjoy our life and value our time! Yesterday is already gone and tomorrow may just be a little too late!
“Try to imagine a life without timekeeping. You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.”
– Mitch Albom – The Time Keeper
It’s been a busy time for me! If I am unexpectedly away from the blog for a few days, it is because there is just not enough time, and I am just trying to use it the best way that I can.
Thank you for spending the time to read my blog every week. I will do my best to be on-time for the next Happy Monday post.
Until next week, so long for now…
