Time

Time is a funny thing, it is said to heal all wounds, and that only time will tell.  It governs everyone’s lives, from the minute they are born, to the hours spent studying, procrastinating, hanging out, dating, drinking, laughing, and crying growing up, even the days watching memories happen, watching friends drift away, or just watching movies or TV, to the weeks of working day in and day out and travelling, to the months of marriage that will be the best times and can be some of the worst times, and even the years raising kids, and seeing grandkids up until the moment time becomes eternity…and I believe that eternity is some sort of afterlife, whether it be heaven or whatever the next stage is.  Time will be all of that for some people, less for others, and more for a lucky few.  I see this time as perfect, you don’t need millions of dollars or fame to have all of it, you just need time.  There is plenty of it, but I’m still young.  Plus, I’m an optimistic pessimist, which means I see a glass half full, but there is still some missing.  As an engineer, I see the glass as being twice the size it needs to be…but that is just an engineering joke.  So let me end with this, what would happen if time was a non-issue, would it make any of the above accomplishments or memories any less valuable? Would actually having all the time in the world make you complacent or make you strive to be the best person you can be? For now I am going to use my time a little more wisely, but don’t forget you can’t always be buried in work, you have to stop and smell the roses, or have a drink with your friends every once and a while too. Thanks.
