Some may say, its money. 'I want lots of it and nothing will stand in my way of achieving financial freedom.' Then there are those that focus on health and wellbeing, seeking longevity. And others again, believe, family comes first. Just to name a few.
Don't get me wrong, right here at the start, because these necessities are all valid desires, and are very important to living well, happy and healthy. However, in amongst these valued desires...is something we tend to forget...TIME
Time is our most precious commodity.
Time is so fleeting and uncontrollable that we don't give it a second thought, we forget or discard its value, until it's too late.
We like to say. 'I have things to do, places to be, work to be done. there is no time.'
Our minds are so consumed with needs, wants and routine, that we set Time aside, as if it were insignificant, eternal and rechargeable. 'There is plenty of time.' We say to ourselves. 'There is always tomorrow.'
Time, is the most significant and most valuable asset of our entire lives.
Time, is what we tend to forget.
Time, comes like a thief in the night. It only appears in it's true form when the clock is running out. And it is only then, that suddenly, we face our first major epiphany since birth.
Time, in the face of no tomorrow, begins rewinding lifes video, and we watch it in the mirror of our reflections, scenes roll in and out of our past, present and future.
Time shows us, in great detail, our lives, our choices, the people we love and those we despised. It measures the value of what we gave importance to; it reveals either folly or fortune.
So, why? Is it here, at the end; we are forced to measure Time? Why do we least understand until the end... "Why did I waste so much Time?"
Time is not our friend.
It is the Dark Lord of tommorrow. Who lies in wait, to one day strike.
Time, in the end, will expose the lives we chose to live.
It will project stories into our fading moments. Showing us, all the horror, misdeeds, waste and ignorance.
But it will also reveal the people we loved, the moments shared in laughter, joy and togetherness.
Time will tell the stories of our adventures and dreams. Those fulfilled and those unfulfilled.
Time is a thief and unchangeable.
One must never forget that Time is the most precious of all the gifts granted.
Our lives are bound to Time.
Don't waste it.
Don't wait to regret it.
Don't believe it will last forever. Not in this life anyway.
Make the most of your day. Remember to stay in touch with those you love. And forgive all those that have wronged you.
There is no Time to waste.
Live, Love and be happy, no matter what the circumstances.
Because if your alive and breathing.
Time, I guarantee you... will one day come to collect.
