Like everything else in life, time is relative. When you’re doing something you love, it seems to go so fast. When you’re doing something you don’t enjoy, it seems to drag out.

Yet an hour is still always 60 minutes. Whether it goes fast or slow is purely an illusion you create because of the value you give to the time. In the eyes of eternity, it’s like a drop of water in the ocean.

We can all spend our time however we wish…doing something we want to do…doing something we have to do….doing something we don’t want to do…or doing nothing at all.

At the end of the day, we can look back to see how we’ve spent our time. Did we accomplish what we wanted to accomplish? What we had to accomplish? Did we make the time to do something we wanted to do? Did we take time to enjoy our day, re-energize our thoughts, our minds, our bodies and/or our spirits?

If not, there’s always tomorrow. Yet this is one day we’ll never get back. It’s lost forever. Spend enough days without doing what you want to do and you’ll see time slip away from you.Clock2

Life and time may both be eternal, but on Earth it’s not.

Time is on our side. Use it (wisely) or lose it. Tick…tock…
