24 May How To Appreciate Time
We all know the saying time goes fast. And it does. Seasons turn into another. Dawn turn to dust and before we know it its Christmas. We notice it more perhaps when we have a birthday looming. Its like a little siren that goes off in our mind that says ‘ Its here already!’. So with this is mind, how do you appreciate time? Not by thinking about the past or the future but being in the present. When you live in the present your taking in every moment of the hours, the days and your life. That way when your birthday does come around you know that you have lived fully that whole year. Filled with all the ups and downs, the good times and the stressful times. You can look back on the achievements and the lessons. What you want to take with you in the next year coming. Like a fine wine do we get better with age? I think so. With age comes wisdom. With age comes understanding and compassion. You stop sweating the small stuff that would have bothered you before. You have a greater understanding of life and what you want and don’t want. You feel the changes inside yourself and you notice that your interested in new things not so much what you used to do and be. Time moves you on. You grow in different directions as you walk your journey in life. Time is a precious commodity so its important to live fully and openly. Be true to yourself. Authenticity is key. When someone gives you their time they are giving you a gift. So its important who you give your time and energy to. Take note of who shares their time with you. Who make the effort and who is there for you. Then you will know who deserves your time and for how long. It makes more sense as you get older and as your experiences with people vary. Give thanks for time. Give thanks for what time has given you. We sometimes forget that when things go wrong or we take things for granted. When there is no time left. Speak to someone who is dying and they will teach you how to truly live. So everytime there is a birthday looming don’t focus on the number or ‘age’ stigma. But count your blessings and the time that you have been blessed with having.
