Time definitely doesn’t wait for anyone

Twix 10 months

To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.

To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who has given birth to a premature baby.

To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.

To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.

To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who just missed a train.

To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask someone who just avoided an accident.

To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won a silver medal at the Olympics.

Treasure every moment you have! And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. And remember time waits for no one.

This really puts things into perspective. I hope this weekend and every day forward, you value every precious moment in life. We’re given 86,400 seconds each day. How we choose to spend them is completely our decision. We can spend them being bitter, resentful, angry and depressed. Or, we can value every second we have and spend that time making the most of what’s been given to us.

It’s a hard concept. Believe me, I’m learning this the hard way. Many times, at the end of the day I realize how badly I’ve failed and lost that precious time. We all need to learn how to savor every moment, and not take time for granted. A lesson sometimes learned too late.

Liking up with Friday Finds.

  1. So true…and especially the seconds that fly by when we have little ones. Even in retirement, it seems the days and weeks are flying too quickly, and I too have trouble savoring the moments when life keeps reminding me of certain things. I try. 🙂 Love the photo of the little one. Growing so quickly, but such a joy, I’m sure.


  2. How profound! One of my greatest shortcomings is that I have poor time management skills. I rarely accomplish what I set out to do in a day. But, in the end, it is really is about spending time with other people – whether it is our loved ones, our friends, or just someone who is in need. When I spend my time helping others or having fun with them, I don’t feel so bad about not fitting in vacuuming 54 steps.

    I love the photo. Your little one is so cute! The matching hat and blanket are such a great idea for the composition of the photo, and I really like the soft blurry texture on the edge.
