Time is this elusive commodity that we either have an abundance of or not nearly enough.
How many times do we wish that if only we had a few extra hours in every day, we would be okay. If we had a personal assistant to do our laundry, iron our clothes, cook our healthy meals and clean, we would be okay. What if The Universe was working on our side and we were able to speed past all the stopped cars on our 45 minute commute to work? Then, we would have enough time.
Unfortunately life doesn’t mold around our every flitting desire simply because it would be easier. All of us have struggles and complications to work through in this crazy journey. What we can do is realize what makes us happy and mold our lives around that desire. Life is too precious to be wished away and wasted in circles. Sometimes we all just need to take a step back and enjoy each breath away from the grind. Theres no need to spend our time wishing we had more time. Take the time back and love it!
Life is what we make of it. “Where do you see yourself 5, 10, 15 years down the road?” is a popular interview question where the interviewee is suspected to say something insightful and profound. The problem with this question is that it usually extracts answers that are concrete and unrealistic. I mean really, none of us hardly know what is going to happen tomorrow! I think it would be rather depressing to know the future, what would we have to look forward to? There is a beauty in not knowing what is going to happen next, it keeps life fresh and alive. I don’t know where Alex and I will find ourselves 2 weeks down the road, and that right there is freedom for us.
All I want for the future is for Alex and I to be happy.
I want us to fall deeper in love every single day.
I want to live each day as it is my last.
What I’m trying to convey is that no two lives are the same in any way, shape or form. We usually make our own path in this life and it’s our responsibility to do our best so we are happy with our choices in life. Move past the regrets and forgive. Make changes to your life if you find yourself dreading waking up in the morning. Do what YOU love. Look past the judgements of others. Find your own way!
“Time is free but it’s priceless.
You can’t own it but you can use it.
You can’t keep it but you can spend it.
Once you’ve lost it you can never get it back. “
