Time flies!

A day, a week, a month, a year… 10 years! One blink of an eye, and 30 years are gone. They say: don’t let life pass you by. Live fully! But how do we do that?

You love, you loose, you travel, you experience, you create, you hurt, you doubt, yet you persist. And still, somehow, you blink and another 5 years are gone. What happened?

Can you look back and say, wow, look how far I’ve come?

We can’t make time stop, we can’t slow it down, we can’t rewind it.

Time is so valuable. We all know that, yet we don’t really understand. Until something happens to us, or someone we love, and all of a sudden, time is so relevant, and short. This will make you reconsider, what is really important in life?

Was it important to have that fancy car, big house, shiny things? Was it important to spent all that time working, to pay for those things?

Did they bring you happiness? How does your car weigh up against your hours at work to pay for it?

Are you doing something you love? Are you working to live, or living to work? How much money do we really need?

Our system is flawed. We work all of our lives and put peace and enjoyment off until retirement?! Only to then be too old, sick and frail to do anything… So don’t wait, to enjoy your life.

Never wait until tomorrow, to enjoy the now. Live the life you want tomorrow, today.

So, what can we do?

We can take chances, opportunities, risks, and challenges, that will all lead to experiences which will enhance our lives. Because experiences and interactions is what it is all about.

Be present and mindful as much as you can, and as often as you can. Taste your food, be grateful for it, feel the sun on your skin, the grass under your feet, and listen. Make time to listen to the silence.

And don’t let a single day go by, where you don’t feel gratitude, where you don’t laugh or smile. And be kind, because helping someone else is one of the best feelings in the world.

Lastly, Work towards your goal? Don't have one? Then find one. And take action towards your goal every day! Even if it is one little thing, sending one text, research something for 10min, do one post, brainstorm, manifest, create.
