The funny thing about time is how much it dictates your life – you’re running late or you’re on time or you’re early or prehaps you’ve got time to kill or looking for something to pass the time or desperately seeking the illusive ‘me time’. But does anyone just stop and appreciate time? How often do you just make the most of the time you’ve got? Pause and just be in the moment. People can’t just ‘be’ anymore. There’s always something to be caught on film or camera. The first time my son attempted his version of crawling I watched it through my smart phone as I was trying to capture the moment to share it with everyone else – why?
Time is precious. Moments of time are taken for granted and if you add up all the moments in time you’ve missed or over looked or failed to focus on, you’ve probably missed out on hours if not days, weeks or months of your very own life. There are events in life which change your mindset and make you think differently about time. They make you realise what you’ve got or what you had – why didn’t you appreciate it before? Because you took it for granted.
The last two weeks of my life have been an absolute whirlwind. You think things are coming together, you think maybe (for a change) things are how you want them to be but then life throws everything up in the air and suddenly time stands still. Everyday waiting on a phonecall or a test result or a moment when you don’t feel like your heart is free falling through your entire body. The last two weeks have dragged and I’ve wished my time away.
The funny thing about time is, time can’t win, it goes too fast, drags or there isn’t enough of it. Make the most of your time, take a moment to look around you, appreciate who you have in your life, what you’ve got and embrace everything you’ve ever taken for granted because one day something might threaten what you’ve got and the time you have and that’s when you realise that actually, times the most precious thing of all.
