Go Ahead And Light Up The Town, And Baby Do Everything Your Heart Desires.

Here’s a fact: I don’t believe that time is on my side.

Time is tangible, but it’s also visceral. You feel it deep down in your bones, You watch your child grow from cartoons to drivers license to falling so deeply in love that you know it’s the real thing. images (1)

You watch as your parents go from larger than life to needing your help to resting their eyes before sunset.

Then you start to rest your eyes.

You understand that it’s real,this clock you have on the wall, and not some circle that will come around again every day. Each roll over of the minute on your digital is one less for your heart to beat, laughter to roar, and tears to dry.

There is no need to fear this time, if you treat it as a friend and not an enemy. With a friend you are compassionate , you listen to them, you respect them, and you never take them for granted. Never.

These are good things to know. If they resonate deep down, you will use your time well, and rejoice in every tick of the dial, instead of fearing the end the movement.

With that, I do not feel that you can waste time if you are doing what you really love.  What ever you’re doing, if it raises your mind, and heart in a way that gives you joy and adds to your quality, you are not wasting anything. I know gamers who love what they play. I don’t look at them as engaging in any form of dissipation  When I see the pure excitement on their faces, I know they are not casting a minute aside, but rather embracing something that makes them feel resonate and whole.

It’s what we use for avoidance that is the enemy. The things we do to deflect our time. I recently set a goal for myself to finish a short story I was writing and submit it for publication. I didn’t meet the deadline. I used my work schedule as the culprit, until I looked at all the time I was wasting on things like social media, surfing the news, and looking at memes of laughable quotes and political aberrations.

I missed the opportunity to feel resonate and whole. Time was not on my side.

So I have taken a hiatus from media to take what precious time I have to concentrate on what is important to me. It was about a year ago I started to write again, and I mustn’t lose track of what I have become because of it.

Do what you love and you won’t waste time.

Do what you love and time is on your side.
