Time - it continues to go on, regardless of what is going on in our lives.
When I was younger, I felt as if time dragged on. I couldn't wait for time to pass, because I wanted to get older. Now that Im older (Im not old) I feel as if time is going by too quickly. I want to slow it down. I want to enjoy the little moments. I want to breathe and be (I think this is what they call living in the moment).
Learning to stay in the day, is not always an easy task. I have to work at it. However, as time has passed (no pun intended) I have been given the gift of some hard lessons to learn that once time leaves, I don't get a redo.
Time can teach me about life, that is if I am willing to set some valued time aside so I can pause and reflect, and at times, meditate, just how precious of a gift time is.
Hopefully you will find a quote or two that reminds you just how time is passing and to be in the moment as much as possible.
Here's my favorite:
"Time is free, but it's priceless.
You can't own it, but you can use it.
You can't keep it, but you can spend it.
Once you've lost it you can never get it back."
– Harvey Mackay
