A Matter Of Time
Updated: Jan 3
Time, at least as we understand it, works in a linear fashion, moving only in one direction.
It doesn’t stop, it just carries on towards its final destination.
Whether you move with it or not doesn’t really matter, because it will go on, even without you
Even if you don’t go to it, it will eventually come to you.
There is no escaping it.
You see, you may delay, but time will not.
You may think that this train will go on forever, but it won’t.
Even when you’re still, time moves on
Life itself will go on without you.
Because life, if nothing else, is made up of time.
Empty space, filled with potential
And no matter what happens today, one thing is certain, it won’t stop time.
At birth, you are essentially nothing but pure potential and it is in understanding and fulfilling this potential where your life ultimately finds meaning.
So don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.
Don’t waste away the talents and opportunities that have been given to you.
The train will eventually come for you at a moment of its own choosing, so when it does, just make sure you’re packed and ready to go.
