It’s 4 in the afternoon and I’m writing this blog… finally, I’m making time to write. I’ve been thinking about writing this blog for a couple of days now, but didn’t have time for it yet….
Time…how often do you look at your watch to see what time it is? I do this a lot…without even noticing. Starting with the alarm clock going off in the morning telling me it’s time to get up and it goes on and on during the day… time for breakfast, time to get dressed, running late for work, time to work, time to have lunch, time to go home, time for dinner, time to relax, time to go to bed.
Making an appointment…what time should I be there? How much time will it take me to get from A to B?
How often do I say to one of the children: “Hang on a moment, let me finish this first. Give me a minute and I’ll be right with you”? School, work, exercise, take a shower or a bath, clean the house, cook dinner, meetings, go out and see friends…everything takes time.
Time…our whole life is dictated by time.
Time is so precious and seems to becoming more and more precious as we get older. Several events in the past year have caused me to step back and take ‘time’ to reflect more often, ask myself what moments I enjoyed that day, ask myself how I really feel…and try to limit or eliminate things I don’t like doing or which cost me too much energy. I try to be more aware of how much joy the little things in life bring me, because every day brings moments of joy, small or big… It makes me notice what’s important in life.
A second, a minute, an hour, a day, a month, a year….time…it’s bringing us countless options, possibilities, chances…decisions…but what do you do with your time?
A couple of days ago I ran into this video, which brought me the idea to write this blog. I hope you take time to watch it:
Time is precious, once it’s gone, you can’t get it back. This all made me write this poem.
Time, you can’t see it
can’t hear it
But it’s there
Time comes and goes
Slowly or fast
Good times or tough times
Time never lasts
Time is a second
Time is a year
and now or never
Time heals, time teaches
brings hope, but also fear
Time brings confusion
but time also makes things clear
Time brings chances
Time makes us decide
decide about all possibilities
Time can be evil
can be your worst enemy
Times can be dark and
leave you with no energy
But time also brings love
and brings laughter
Time brings lots of joyful moments
and brings people together
Time is right here and right now…
be aware of how you spend it
Do what you love, with the people you love
Don’t waste time…
No blog without a song…
