We take time for granted

What if we happened to know the day we were to die, to know the last few moments we had left on earth, to appreciate what’s left. We’d live differently wouldn’t we, if we lived as if we were to die tomorrow. We’d hold on to our loved ones, redeem ourselves of our sins, check mark what can be check marked on our bucket list, and appreciate things we disregarded, things we took for granted.  Because life is short, investing in today and thinking about future potential is much more productive than longing for a past gone forever.

Life holds one great but quite commonplace mystery. Though shared by each of us and known to all, seldom rates a second thought. That mystery, which most of us take for granted and never think twice about, is time.

Most of us don’t realize the time we have on this earth is limited, yet we take it for granted. We don’t give enough time to ourselves, our friends, our family, and things that matter most. It is important to focus on what prepares us for the future as well, but who knows if there even is a future in store for you. As James Dean states “Dream as if you’ll live forever, live as if you’ll die tomorrow.”

 

I for one, tend to live my life spontaneously, I do things as they come at me rather than planning everything out. Sure, I may seem disorganized and messy and lack time management skills, but I choose to disregard it, some of it has to do with being lazy and some of it has to do with the fact that I just don’t care enough. I know I should care about that too and I do but not enough. I want to actually live to enjoy life while I am living it, enjoy the little things. Sometimes while I sit in class my mind tends to wander off to the things I could have been doing rather than listening to my professor lecturing. I look back to my high school years, I learned absolutely nothing. I feel like becoming educated academically throughout school and college takes away a huge chunk of time. And when we reflect back on that time we don’t really reflect on what we learned most of it is forgotten, but the moments we had, the experiences that took place those are memories, those can’t be forgotten. I have learned far more from my experiences than anything else.

Considering everything in hand. I questioned “Does one become smarter or more stupid as life passes by?”, there is no definite answer to this question. However, as I came to the conclusion, I depicted that there are four stages. One being the day you are born, when you are completely clueless, two being your childhood years when you are eager to know everything, and then three being the teenage years of when you think you know everything, and then rest of the years where you reflect on what you really did or do know. Growing older provides one with a sense of reflection, to not repeat yesterday’s mistakes, to live from experiences, and to not take time of what’s left to live for granted. The old are the wise, befriend them and enrich your soul young ones.

Live for today, with no regrets, no worries, take some risks, take advantage of every opportunity you have and most importantly don’t take the time you have today for granted 😉

Keep an optimistic attitude

Having an optimistic attitude is the key thing in life which brings us happiness, gives us hope for a brighter future and makes us stronger to keep on living. Love the life you live, and live the life you love. Here is a quote, by Ghandi, on how a positive attitude reflects your destiny.

Let me breathe

See what losing a pen results to…Take note, don’t loose your pen or you will die!

So here I am back to high school, back to the same daily routine, same school, same people, slightly different schedule, some new teachers, more books, more homework, more tests, more stress, more pressure and soon college applications….. Oh joy! I feel like I am just being chucked at with things to do from every corner so much to juggle and apparently its just the beginning.

Guess what I am thinking … When will it end?! Slow down life, let me breathe please!

Time is going by so fast and barely within my grasp, I am just holding on in hopes of surviving tomorrow and every day that follows. *crossed fingers

Destiny awaits me…..behold!
Good night my fellow blog readers 🙂
