Time is a finite resource.
We are only allotted a certain amount in our lives and once time passes, you can never ever get it back.
With 2013 over and done with, I can’t help but think about the time that’s come and gone this past year. Did I make good memories? Meaningful friendships? Am I happy with how I lived? The choices I’ve made?
For me, it’s certainly been a year of self-learning and discovery. And of all the life lessons I’ve encountered this past year, nothing resonates more deeply than the lesson of time.
Every minute, day, week, month that goes by happens only once. It’s fleeting and you use it up without even realizing. The clock ticks away without your awareness, permission or a care.
One day you’re playing with your baby brother sending him into fits of giggles with a tickle attack, and the next thing you know, he’s taller than you are (apparently I didn’t get the tall gene).
Time is a precious resource that will continuously dwindle down. Everyone has it, but not everyone values it.
It’s with this understanding that I ring the New Year with one important goal.
To cherish my time and spend it wisely.
How about you? I’d love to hear what your most important lesson was in 2013 and what you hope to accomplish in 2014?
I also want to give a special thank you to all my global followers and readers. I wish you all nothing but joy and best wishes this upcoming year. See you in 2014!
