Making use of our weekend staring into space awakens too much frustration as the day unfolds. It seems like a SIN if we have tolerated our desire of easy life with just relaxing our mind and laying on the bed enjoying a movie or book even if inside our system we are questioning ourselves why we are doing nothing at all. Sunday night will come and the next day will be Monday, we still have a lot things needed to be done but it is already night and tomorrow will be a new day. Thus, we are going to wish to escape life, that tomorrow, the Monday we all hate will not happen, or this Sunday will be like a promo to be extended, so you still have the TIME to finish all the tasks. Everything will go astray, and you are going to break down. You totally despise your life because you have done nothing for you are really running out of time.
The belief that we are running out of time is a total fallacy. We are never running out of time. It is not a food that can be scarce. There is no such thing as time scarcity or time shortage. Time is immemorial. We always have time but it is up to us, if it will be wrongly used. It is up to our mindset if we have wasted it. It is us who is unfocused on the NOW that we have and been very worrisome that we might lack it. It is you and I who watches and observes the ticking of the clock instead making most out of it. It is the “We” whose busy counting time instead of aiming to finish what we are doing. We keep our sharp eye on what is the time instead of doing it NOW.
Now is what matters. Life goes on. Minutes turn to hours. Days are passing. Pages of the calendar changes as a new month had started until another year will be over and if we are going to let these numbers rule us, we are just going to live in regret. The time is passing. True. But if we are on to counting it than cherishing the moment, or seizing the day, we are just giving our mind a piece of it’s own hell. Being too much conscious of “What time it is?” gives birth to worry, anxiety and remorse. It will makes us rush and forget how to breathe, then led to living our life the hard way. So just move now and enjoy life. Cherishing NOW is always what matters.
“As mankind grew obsessed with its hours, the sorrow of lost time became a permanent hole in the human heart. People fretted over missed chances, over inefficient days; they worried constantly about how long they would live, because counting life’s moments had led, inevitably, to counting them down. Soon, in every nation and in every language, time became the most precious commodity.” – Mitch Albom, The Time Keeper
