Time has a way of going so fast! It has us saying, “My….it’s Christmas already, this year has gone by so fast!” The same for every holiday and occasion. Every year it is all the same. We plan to make more time for a new year for the things we enjoy so much—arts, crafts, writing, reading, photography, travelling, or maybe even just spending more quality time with loved ones. Or, maybe we plan to change our lifestyles—diet, exercise, our control over the power of addiction, whatever it may be. The best of intention is always there.
For those who time has gotten the better of and gave the experience of how fast it can actually tend to creep up on the unexpected, the learned behavior of planning ahead for any and all events within a person’s life has made them somewhat excellent timekeepers, planning in advance, buying gifts months and months earlier, planning vacations, trips, and even quality time for the love of family which is cherished so so much. Life tends to sometimes happen and plans at times tend to not happen the way planned, but when it is all said and done, the best intention is always there.
Life has that funny way of making us say, “It wasn’t supposed to happen like this.” We bite the bullet, and move on knowing that time can sometimes play us for a fool. In the blink of an eye, time has its way of changing if even in the slightest. It is my observation that time gets the best of us, because most of the world go about, los muertos vivientes (The living dead).
The joy within living is not there in so many lives. That good morning cheer is absent. That appreciation for another day on this earth is not appreciated. Many of us take life for granted. We are the living dead. Our lights inside ourselves are dimming out. It is idea to awaken, enjoy each moments, both the good and even the bad. Stop living like los muertos vivientes (The living dead), and allow that light within to shine brighter than it has even shone in time’s great space.
We do not live in these bodies forever. Like Author Dr. Wayne Dyer says, “Don’t Die with Your Music Still in You.” We all have a message. We all have something to teach others and finding the purpose for life, is understanding the need for time. Tomorrow is never promised, and it is time to live in the now, for time waits for no one, and time doesn’t stand still, not even for a second.
Today is a new day, a day for a fresh start! So why wait for a new year to make changes? Remember time is precious, and time will never be on our sides. But, the choice, the power of it, is all within the hands of the most eccentric timekeeper. The best of intention is all up to you, the one reading this, right now.
