time

I had a conversation with someone the other day
It was ironic since the conversation we had, was a topic that has been plaguing my brain for some time.

Time.

For some reason I have noticed the passing of time as of late.
It seems like everything is flying by and I am so perplexed!  When did all this happen?
Why is the passing of time so heavy on my mind?

My niece, surely she can’t be almost 3.  Wasn’t it just yesterday I was waiting ever so patiently to meet her?

I spoke to my godmother yesterday.  Again, it can’t be 3 years that I have spoken to her can it?  I am blessed she still knows my name and recognizes my voice…but will it be that way a year from now?
we all know how quickly a year passes.

That friend…who surely I just saw not too long ago… has it really been over 6 months since I’ve seen her?

People that you thought you’d never live without – time passes and life goes on.

Hearts break, hearts ache…
And time has the miraculous ability to make them whole.

Death, sadness, tears….you do learn how to smile again.

This is the nature of time.

Where is this going?  Not too sure lol
This is what’s been on my mind lately.  How time seems to be flying at warp speed and I would like it to slow down just a little.
I mean am I not still 27?  Say it ain’t so!!

And so, the conversation I had the other day had me thinking about time even more.

A lovely lady asked me if I was afraid that I was “wasting my time”
Isn’t life for living?

She was referring to my routine.  Going to the gym, eating healthy.
Is it worth it …investing so much of your time – wasting your life like that?

Wow.
It still bothers me – that statement – wasting your life.

For over 30 years I was wasting my days – obviously not every single day of my life.
But I wasted a lot of time.
A lot of time being sad, unhealthy, stagnant.
I also spent a lot of time being happy, healthy and go, go, go.

Nothing is wasted.  Not an ounce of this precious life that I have been gifted with will go to waste.

I live the way I live…to live as long as possible.  To take as much time as I can get.

I want the odds to be in my favour.  I know you can never know when your time is up…but I sure as hell would like to do anything in my power to hang around and find out.

I have a lot of life left in me.  A lot of spunk to share.

So lady I had the conversation with – no.  my life is not wasted.
My life is rich and full of so much potential.
Eating healthy and working out will never be a waste…if anything…maybe I am slowing down time.

I am sorry that your knees hurt…and you are over weight.
I am sorry that you don’t have the energy to take a brisk walk
I am sorry that you are border line diabetic.
I am sorry that you “just can’t stop” eating cookies and chocolate.
I am sorry that you feel the need to ask me how I can eat meat…while you are digging in to your plate of fries. (wow)

I wish you understood how much more energy you would have, if you just made some different choices
I wish you knew how just some small changes…would change your world as you know it.
But that’s not for me to tell you…that’s for you to want.  That’s for you to figure out in your own time.

No…I’m not wasting my time.
You on the other hand…
