Lately I have been thinking a lot about time. The older I get the faster it seems to go. There are so many days and moments I wish I could recover and just bask in those moments once more. But time is irreversible and it can’t be controlled.
Time is not going to slow down for you. It’s not going to give you reminders of the precious gems embedded in each measure of seconds. When I think about it time is just as precious as life. You can’t give someone their time back, once the moment/event is over it’s just over. No do overs just residual memories laced in emotions and wrapped in our six senses.
Time is mystical on so many levels. Like how was time put into motion? How is it that it never stops on earth or in heaven? And how does it measure differently? How can its essence be so strong that a simple smell can propel a fifty year old back in time to their third grade class and the fragrance their teacher once wore? How can one song make your heart race at the thought of your first dance. It’s nothing less than amazing.
Treat your time with respect. Appreciate each second of each day. Even though time is infinite not all forms will remain the same. When you take your last breath time for you in this form is done. Whatever you left undone will remain undone. That dream, that movement to change the world, those summer plans are all left unbirthed.
Don’t take for granted that time will begin again tomorrow or that the dawn will usher you into a new day with unknown elements measured by time. Love your life enough to live it freely and without limits or reservations. Live like time is about to expire and ride the waves of life with no regrets and with unapologetic passion to be the best you during this dash of time. Pack as much life in that dash as you again because time waits for no man.
