…..I know ironic title right? Albeit this one being up late, I wanted to share some thoughts about time.
In the past it’s always been stressed how important time is, how time is money and money is time, how time is more than just time but an investment, and so on.
But time is also a sort of one way road – or more accurately string of bridges. What do I mean? Well…read on.
Musings Episode 63: Time…
The reason I say time is a “string” of bridges is due to the fact that every decision or action we take in life is something that takes up time – and once it’s done there’s really no looking back.
This is why you always hear those little classic quotes that encourage you to leave the “what ifs” out of your life, and are constantly reminding you that without change you’ll never grow.
Change is intrinsically linked with time – anything or anyone that changes invests a certain amount of time in doing so – it all takes time and a willingness to do so.
Scars heal over time or are forgotten.
Health is restored (or changes) over time and is improved.
Success happens over time and inevitably changes or improves lifestyle.
Every single thing you do is linked with time.
Each decision you make alters something in the future.
I wouldn’t say there’s no going back, but as far as human intelligence is concerned there’s also no reversal of time – no “turning back the clock.” Or at least humans haven’t figured out how to yet…
Hang on a minute – that last bit sounded really “definite” and realistic – let me clarify.
In other words, there are decisions people make and characters people mold that can always be changed or improved, but as far as undoing certain things the change that was already done will always be there as a memory – or a lesson.
This can range from sticking together with family, changing careers, getting married, or joining a sport.
Even if we undo those said changes, as far as time is concerned they happened and are now imprinted as a memory – some forget, some always remember.
But like an arrow released from the bend of the bow, time is spent the same way – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Like a bridge burnt immediately after you’ve driven over it, there’s no getting it back.
You can rebuild the bridge.
You can reload the bow.
But the original bridge burnt or the first arrow spent can’t be taken back.
This is why throughout my life I’ve always been considerably careful about who I associate with, what actions I take, what memories I make…basically how I invest my time.
Even writing everyday for this blog and the official site is an investment of time that’s made.
…it’s quite healthy to do so, being careful is. Not pessimistic – just careful. Don’t misinterpret what you just read as choosing to live in a sheltered environment – but the same way eating healthy and exercising lead to a great looking, healthy body, is the same way being in healthy environments, associating with positive (and like minded) people who have your best interest at heart, and doing what you really want to do in life, increases your positive yield on time spent.
So just remember, your time is precious – and just like how there are some stores that you can’t get a refund at after spending money, so goes the same with your time…ergo choose how you “spend” it wisely.
Just a little inspiration to kick off your week. 😉
