Have you noticed how quickly time passes when you’re having a good time? You want to bottle that time and save it so you can cherish those moments forever. You never want a happy moment to pass! But on most days you find that time is crawling and the clock is ticking endlessly. Perhaps you’re stuck in a lecture, or at work on a slow day. In moments like these, you wish time flew by faster.
This is a huge mistake! Why would you want to give up something that you can never get back? Every second matters. When you think time is going too slowly, it merely means than you aren’t engaged in something that you like doing, or you’re bored. When this happens, it’s time to take a walk, get some fresh air, call a friend and have a pointless chat about old times!
Time needs to be cherished and utilized in such a way that when you look back at life you don’t regret having wasted your time by wishing time was over! The next time you feel like time is passing too slowly, think about the fact that this time will never come back to you. Draw that picture you are envisioning, eat the yummy pizza, go for that fifteen minute jog you’ve been prolonging, rather than sitting around and cursing the clock for boring you.
Time is the most precious thing on earth and we are the only species that knows we have limited time. Let’s make our lives worth living by using time efficiently and passionately! It’s time to enjoy the time you have left.
