Use time do not get used by time

Writing about water clocks (which by the way seem to be really cool)  date back as far as 4000 BC. So, humans have been measuring time for a really long, well, time. We break the day into hours then minutes and seconds. We set up appointments for important things like football and baseball games and practice. We also set up appointments for not so important things like the start and end of the work day.  Appointments are important, they help us connect. Connections and interaction is paramount for pretty much everything.  What else is life about if it is not about connecting?

Time helps us connect.  By using time we can life a more full and ordered life but when time uses us we risk living a life of regret. Everyone sleeps in late and misses appointments it is part of life, it is important that we do not beat ourselves up about it. A while back I posted about being late is always better than not being there at all and I still hold true to that.

Man created time, but not all men have mastered time. Time is a tool not some monster. There is a quote by an author about birthdays and life that really makes me think about time.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?
Satchel Paige

Something to consider. There is nothing wrong with time but it has to be in it’s place time is your servant not the other way around.

 

“There is a certain part of all of us that lives outside of time. Perhaps we become aware of our age only at exceptional moments and most of the time we are ageless.”
― Milan Kundera

 

Every year on your birthday, you get a chance to start new.
