The Trouble is You Think You Have Time
by | Oct 21, 2016
When we think about time we often think time is just a unit of measurement that keeps tracks of our busy schedules and hectic lives. Time has a different meaning for me. For me time is the most valuable thing you can possess in your life, and the best part about it is we all have time. Although our time may vary based on our age and our health, we all have time. It is really hit home with me lately that every day is an opportunity and we need to make the most out of what you have in the current moment. I want to find a way to share what i'm feeling in a way that everyone can understands without being a part of the situations in my life that I have encountered.
Sometimes in life we get so caught up in where we are headed that we forget to enjoy the present moment that we are in right now. When it comes down to the reality of life, our time spend on this earth is very short. We all have moments were we think back about our past and reflect on. It’s as simple as where we have been and what we have become. The past can be a few hours ago or it could be a few years. To some a few years may have felt like just yesterday, to others a year ago may have felt like forever.
I observe people everyday, some may call it people watching, and well quite frankly it is. I look at their body language, the way the speak, their expressions on their face. It’s all part of the inner workings of my mind. I want to see why people act the way they do. A while back i was sitting alone at this coffee shop and i was intrigued by the world around me, the hustle and bustle of the traffic zipping by at the nearby intersection. Impatient people honking horns trying to get somewhere in as little time as possible. At this same moment in time there’s a newly-wed couple sitting across from me deeply in love. Enjoy a coffee and muffin together, as if time didnt exist. To them nothing else mattered in that current moment of time. Yet one day they will experience the same feeling that, the driver at the intersection had felt. It’s unavoidable, everyone will feel frustrated, impatient, mad, or sad at some point.
Each and everyone of us represent a piece of a large puzzle, there are a little over 7 billion people in this world. We all live our lives differently and at different stages. Yet at some point we will all feel the same feelings but in slightly different scenario. You can relate to almost everyone in this world. Whether you choose to or not is up to you. You won’t agree on everything, but everyone can agree on something. What I can tell you is when you take the time to be observant you may just find someone worth connecting with You may just be able to feel what they are feeling and better prepare yourself for that same situation in your future that you have not yet encountered. Maybe you can learn from them and better prepare yourself. Listen to your surroundings, be more observant and you too may find something or someone worth your time.
We all go through life coming from different backgrounds and different families, yet we all have one thing in common. We are all human, which means we will live through our own lifespans and we will all eventually die. Death is a weird subject for some people, and most will avoid thinking about it at al cost. What I want you to think about is how you live your life, and how others will remember, how you live your life. What I have learned is that every time you think to much about the future you loose even more of the present. Living for the now is something you learn how to do, and it does not come easily. With outside influences always picking away at your brain, pulling you in and pushing you to make a decision now, it’s sometimes hard to remember who truly is in control of the life you live. Next time you find yourself pulled in one direction more than the other go with your gut, but remember to keep an opened mind as well. Time is not always on your side but you are always in control of your time. When you feel rushed or forced take a step back and breath, for it will work out. You never know where life may take you. Your life is meant to be lived and you shouldn’t take it for granted.
