You wake up as the sun ray forces open your eye lids to hit the ‘play’ button of your day and you expect rainbows to colour up your bright day.
Sit down on your bed, couch or on the floor – depending on whether you were sent home after getting wasted the night before – , and ask yourself “What I have done yesterday, would I hit ‘replay’ today?”
And you list down the things you want to do, but because you’re too lazy to get up and reach out for a pen and paper, you list it down in your mind, ignoring the fact that you’ll forget what you thought within the hour hand.
And the next thing you know, you’re late for school or work.
So you force yourself to get up, hoping that moving away from you ‘sleep zone’ is not as hard as opening your eye lids. Of course! How could you not when you need to rush and catch up with time?
Heed that my intention is not giving the wrong idea. I’m not implying that if you skip brushing off the chicken stuck between your teeth or forgetting about flushing the toilet after your business will allow time to stop, have a cup of espresso and wait up for you while reading tomorrow’s papers.
But when you’re supposedly late for something, you tend to try to defy all odds and believe that you could actually catch up with time when you’re actually doing is scraping off your time. It’s like chasing the breath of a dragon with a fish net. Never going to happen.
When people believe they managed to beat time actually means they mange to beat their own time, not?
You arrive just in time. Why? You pass the red light and skip zipping up your fly.
Time flies. And it flies without mercy. It’ll not turn back like a waiter who reinquires your order.
Life is recorded, but somehow the ‘replay’ button doesn’t seem to appear anywhere in life.
Just let it be. It’s as simple as that. Time is not a complex matter. We’re making it intricate just tom grant us an intellectual superiority when actually you’re just a blind mice leading thousands of potential leaders who can see clearly but sight impeded by the complication you so called superiors cause.
Live life and enjoy every second of it. The future is uncertain as how long we are going to live.
Try not to be late and support the thought in your mind that you could actually play a game of catch with time.
Don’t attempt to stretch time, cause if you do, time won’t be the want that breaks, something else will, and that is our life.
I know time flies. Inevitably. And there’s nothing we can do about it but to just sit down, relax, execute our responsiblities and live life the way we want it.
That way, time would fly faster, but at least we have the assurance that we used it well. Wouldn’t that mean a lot?
I best sum things up by the words of a true genius.
“When you sit with a nice girl for two hours, it seems like two minutes. When you sit on a hot stove for two minutes, it seems like two hours that’s relativity.” — Albert Einstein
