Today I’ve been reflecting on the passage of time.
How time just keeps on slippin’
Tick tock tick tock
and pretty soon we have to let go…
I’ve been pet sitting as a side hustle
and I had a dog with me for the last 5 days who I grew to really care for
He was so sweet, obedient, and loving.
During our last hour together I kept looking at him and I felt sadness in my heart.
As we played tug of war all I could think of is that in less than an hour I would be saying good bye
he would go back home to his owner… and that would be it.
The fact I knew that pretty soon I would have to say good bye – boy, it hit me.
Because we can really take for granted the time we’ve been given here on Earth. Our time is limited and each second passing means we are closer to expiration.
We never really know when we will say good bye to the people and things we love most,
it literally could be any moment.
This made me think of the importance of cherishing the good moments of this life and to make it a priority to seek more of the good, because what better else could we be doing with our limited time?
Waste it away in an office working 9-5 doing work we aren’t passionate about? No thanks.
When we realize our time is something we can’t ever get back we start getting picky about it
We won’t just say “yes” to random invitations that serve no good purpose in our lives
We won’t accept getting paid less than we deserve
We won’t waste time doing things that don’t fulfill us
because time is limited
and the sooner we understand that
the sooner we can start valuing and prioritizing what we believe is important
Time is slippin’
tick tock tick tock tick tock….
