I’m about to get philosophical on ya.
Lately time hasn’t been on my side. I never seem to have enough of it. Too much of it gets spent on things not worthy of the most valuable currency we have. And it seems like we’re rushing around trying to be on time, lend others time, fitting as much as possible into that time we have each day in order so we can live a fulfilled and rich life… before our time runs out. Yet a funny thing happens… when we’re always worried about time and cramming everything we can into it… time goes by faster… and faster… and faster. We have less of it. So if time goes faster when you’re rushing around and thinking about the past and always worrying about the future… and not enough in the present… since time isn’t a real thing (it’s a man made construct)… are we really gaining? Or are we gaining life when we slow down and enjoy it… letting time trickle by? I dunno. But I think at this point in my life… if we’re after fulfillment… it’s probably more of the latter than the former.
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about time… and how it mentally jerks us around. Sometimes we think we have all the time in the world to get things done… then the next second we realize the only time we’ve actually got for sure is the second we’re living right now.
I stumbled on this video below that really puts time into perspective. So… what is time for you?
