Some say life is a Bitch!
Your lifetime is in countdown mode from the moment you are born. How much time do you get in a lifetime today?
- 7,000 days
- or more?
Nobody knows for sure, until you get to the end. Then it’s still anybody’s guess.
One thing for sure, we all get a better chance at longer lives due to clean water and sanitation. This has added years for everyone. Used to be if you made it past 30 years (10,950 days) you were getting really old!
So take a guess (after the hint above) it should be easy to see. It doesn’t matter who you are, everyone’s days are still numbered.
We are all in a race against time to live a full life. We all have the same amount of time each day. The only difference is some of us get more days. Some say, “Time is money,” others know that money is not that important and shouldn’t be used as a yardstick to measure one’s real life success.
People talk about being time poor, not many people say they’re time rich. Other’s might say they have too much time on their hands?
I can only wish for more time! It sometimes seems I don’t even know where all my time has gone?
The real mystery is our ‘best before date’ when we start losing the freshness of life and start to go sour and become stale. Sometimes, this kind of ‘life loss’ happens due to life circumstances.
People become sad, depressed, trapped in situations that can damage or kill their spirit to live.
So on our way to the end of the road (before the next journey starts) we need to keep our bodies, minds and spirits in good shape our life journey. Ok, so what does happen when we get to the end of the road on this earth?
This is the ultimate question in life, those who know aren’t talking, and those who don’t know are all just talking.
What happens when our time is up? Where do we go? Will we go to heaven or hell? WTF!
Don’t spend too much time worrying about it. We all start life with lots of time, never really knowing the value of time until we get older. Many people clue into this fact and waste their lives.
This is definitely when having a plan is a good thing. Of course saying that is easier than coming up with the plan and having the courage to fail and try, and try again and again until you feel your plan starts working for you instead of against you!
This is an important thing to realize about time. Time is a teacher. We may not like all the lessons, but (sometimes) we don’t always get it right the first time and have to try again. Many times when we go through this process we realize that over time something changed, what we really had to have in the beginning wasn’t what would really be the best for us. This is called experience, it can only happen over time!
We also know that time is a healer. Many problems that can not be resolved now, can be resolved with time.
Time is also a level of knowledge gained. Einstein once said he could not solve the current challenges in his work at this time. His observation was that with time applied to the knowledge he was seeking he would find what was need at a higher level of knowledge in a future time. What an optimistic view!
Nobody gets any extra time credits usually. You could say if you’re having a heart attack or something and you get saved it’s extra time? Nobody knows.
Our time can be compared to a roll of toilet paper.
At the beginning, there’s lots of paper and we use it wastefully, taking more time than we really need (at the time).
Then as we see the roll of toilet paper get smaller, we become (or should) more aware that there is less paper on the roll. Now we become more aware and start to treat time as one of the most precious and premium gifts in life and not just another commodity.
We all fear running out, so some of us get scared and try to get the most out of every little square of life’s toilet paper we have remaining.
This can be tedious, as for some of us we don’t want to get too careful and play it safe. The excitement in life is living it to the max!
It’s funny how supply and demand (real or perceived) effects our thinking and approaches to how we react to current realities on life’s highway. The worst thing is to spend our time living in F.E.A.R. (Fantasized Experiences Appearing Real)
Remember the best things in life are free: to be happy, have fun and help others costs very little but is worth more than most things and feels so good!
Think about it. What lies in the other directions is mainly a wasteland of times we should put behind us and move forward into a better future.
Join this human race, get on the T.E.A.M. (Together Everyone Achieves More!)and let’s work together to build one world. Over time, if we all share this life, everyone will be a winner.
Get yourself moving down the road and stay revved up to enjoy the best (only) ride of your life.
So turn up the tunes, hit the gas and get yourself smiling as you’re driving into the sunset.
Please share this post with those in your life whom would you love to spend more time with.
And… Have a Great Day, Everyday!
