Awhile back, I wrote a piece here, promising to occasionally share a few life lessons. There are some benefits to
getting old middle age, one of them being, the older we get, the more opportunity we have to gather tidbits of wisdom with each passing year of life experience.
In reading the quote above, it occurred to me, that one of the things I have learned, or certainly become more aware of, is the value of time.
I often wonder how I arrived at this point in my life so quickly?
Wasn’t it just yesterday I held my infant children in my arms? Didn’t we just move into our house of almost 25 years? How is it possible that my husband & I will be celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary this year?
When we look to the future, seemingly, we think we have an infinite period to pursue all that we hope to achieve or accomplish. Alternatively, when we look to our past, it appears that the moments, the days & the years have sped by at lightning speed!
Time ticks away & we barely even notice it passing.
What are you putting off in the hopes that, at some point, you will have time?
Perhaps you keep promising yourself that you will get healthier. Maybe you are dreaming of a place you would like to visit or a person you hope to reconnect with.
What are you waiting for?
Set the necessary steps in motion to make it happen, whatever “it” is. None of us truly know how much time we have.
We must take advantage of every precious day we are given.
