Time and time again

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” J. R. R. Tolkien

Time is a precious commodity that is both used to its fullest, yet wasted as equally. Every given day, we are allotted a certain amount of time. Using our time wisely is an essential part of living life to its fullest. While we don’t always need to schedule everything down to the second, we still make the best use out of it. For many of us, whether you’re an entrepreneur, have a busy lifestyle, or a parent, stretching each hour to its max is part of everyday life.

Creating that work/life balance is essential so we don’t lose track of ourselves. It’s easy to get lost in the daily hustle, but in doing so, time passes us by. We do this again and again. Every second that ticks by are a gift that is purely unimaginable outside the confines of time and space. A second to one person feels different to every one of us.

No matter who we are or where we are from, we share this universal gift of time in our lives. As we get busier, it’s easy for us to miss this precious time as it passes us by. In all the din and madness of the world, it's important to stand still and focus on the moment. That split-second that can last an eternity within our souls. The stillness that speaks and echoes that hunger for life that blazes like a fire within our very essence.

While we can’t capture time that has been lost, we can make a better future by cherishing the time we have left.
