I've been very aware lately of how fast time is going by. Looking for images for Throwback Thursday posts, I always have the same thought going through my mind, "Where did the time go?" That's always followed by the realization of how much time I've wasted over the years and the fact that time is our most valuable commodity. Once it's gone, we never get it back.
I bought a great little book I love for inspiration. It's called "Age doesn't matter unless you're a cheese." It's loaded with great quotes, all related to some aspect of aging, including learning to cherish each moment. Click on the cover on the right if you want to read more or even buy it for your own library.
Here's one that fits in perfectly with my mindset this morning from the late great comedian, Sid Caesar:
the "now" is passing them by. Do you know how fast a "now" passes?
At the rate of 186,000 miles per second, the speed of light.
So no matter how much you love and enjoy a particular "now",
that's how fast it becomes a "was"...
That's why I never use the word "if" anymore. An "if" is a "never was."
For others, you're staying awake at night wondering when the success fairy is going to wave her magic wand. In the mean time you're missing the beauty of appreciating your family, friends and how your hard work is slowly, but surely, paying off.
It's Sunday and a great time to just appreciate all our "nows". Don't let another second of the day go by without hugging somebody special, letting a friend know they're important to you or simply smiling. Make it a great day everybody...thanks for your support, your feedback and your friendship.
