How many times have we heard someone say “Just a second” as they busily hurry about? Perhaps they shout, “Hang on, this will only take a minute”, then continue working for another hour.
We all may have heard some one say, “Just give me five minutes and I will be ready to go.”
We refer to time as if it is something tangible that we can negotiate with. Some take time for granted, putting off a matter with the assumption they can do it later.
I continually remind myself I am here for a limited time offer. I do not take for granted my heart beat or breaths. While here I am practicing to not look back, or rush forward.
Every second we are given, added to another, creates our time moment by moment. I choose to spend my time enjoying this awesome gift we call life.
