Such a precious part of each and every one of our lives. Time is the one thing you can’t get back yet I’m sure it’s something that 99% of us take for granted.
How often do we think of sending a hello to that friend we haven’t spoken to in a while or spending a random night with your parents just for the hell of it or better yet telling that special someone you love them? The thoughts certainly cross my mind on a daily basis but of course our lives get hectic and we just think ‘Oh it’s okay, I’ll touch base with them tomorrow’.
Why do we not realize that tomorrow is not a given, it is not something that the world owes us? Tomorrow is simply a blessing. It is a luxury that most of the time we probably don’t even realize we have.
I continuously think that there is all the time in the world until one day my eyes are opened and the light at the end of the tunnel has gone dark. It’s hard to realize at the moment what you are or should be feeling, or even worse not knowing that what you’re even experiencing will be a moment that stays with you forever.
That moment the lights go out cannot be reversed, don’t let the feeling left within you be regret. Regret that the time you had was wasted thinking you could cash in on it in the future. Life doesn’t work that way sadly.
I envy that 1% of people. The ones that know the true value of a moment. I aspire to be that person.
Life can change at any given second. Without warning. Without any sort of inclination that something devastating is on the horizon. Life can be taken away in the blink of an eye and that is quite possibly the most terrifying thing I have ever, and will ever, learn in my entire life.
Time. Let’s use it while we still have it.
