It's more powerful than all the money in the world, it's more precious than all the gold you can ever have, and it is worth more than all the riches in the world and yet it is valued the least. It is so precious and special that we cannot even sell or it or give it away. Wealthy, rich and poor all wish that they could have more when it's all used up and gone forever, you cannot pay money for it, bargain for it or asked anyone else for theirs, because they cannot give it. Each one of us only has so much of it, when it is used up there is no more to get anywhere. If you could bottle it up you would be a trillionaire many times over, too bad we cannot bottle it.
Action actor Vin Diesel (Dominic Toretto) in The Fast In Furious movie makes a statement and I quote "I live my life a 1/4 mile at a time" as if he is running out of something or racing against something. When people run or race against something it is usually time, that they are running or racing against. Time is what I am writing about because it is more powerful than money, more precious than gold, worth more than all the riches in the world and yet is the least value of all. Time is so special and precious that we cannot even bottle it up, hide it to save for later.
Time as we measure it has 24 hours in a day, 60 minutes in an hour and 60 seconds in a minute these are time increments that the majority of people all over the world live their lives by these time increments. We all have seen with our own eyes how people will do almost everything in their power living their lives too fast and burn up their time here on earth all too fast before their time.
We live our lives according to time. We use time, to measure how good or bad we are achieving our goals. We use time, to track how far we can travel. We use time, to measure many things, but we will not use time in the sense of our life span because we really have no use for measuring our mortality until it is too late. When we are on that death bed that's when it will hit everyone, in that they start or begin to wish that they had more time.
Time is something we should honor and pay very careful attention to as to how, when and where we use time, because when our time is up, we cannot go back and asked can I have that time back because I screwed up my time. There, are no do over's when your time is up, it is gone forever.
When your time is up you get no more extra time or overtime. There are no overtimes like they have in sports, no one can give you 6 months, 1yr or 2yr or 5 years or more, because when your time is up that is all the time you get period. Let me asked you a question, will you be in the group of people, when your time is up, asking for more time?. Maybe you'll be in the group of people saying and I quote "only if I had more time, I would do this or I would have done that".
If it hasn't come to your attention yet about how precious time is after reading this article, I hope you begin to understand that, time has an undefeated record against all men, women, and children. It does not matter if you are rich, poor, or wealth no one has in the last hundred years has ever beaten time and no one ever will. Time has a pristine record and it will remain pristine for many many generations going forwarded into the future.
In biblical times there was a great wise man and he had something to say about time. His name is Solomon and he stated in King James version: Ecclesiastes:3:1-8
"To everything, there is a season, and time to every purpose under heaven:
2. A time to be born, and time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3. A time to kill, and time to heal; a time to break down, and time to build up;
4. A time to weep, and time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5. A time to cast away stones, and a time gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6. A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8. A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time peace."
Solomon knew that time was important and that we should value our time here on earth. That's why he stated that there are times for every purpose. Most importantly we should make time to reflect on life itself. In the end do not wait until the last minute of your of life to look back or reflect on your time, before it is all gone.
