Time is Everything 1/20

We all have to start somewhere. Well, here goes.

86,400.

Currency that slips away, whether you choose to use it or not. 86,400 seconds in one day. At the end of it, you realize that another 364 times like this, and one year will have gone by. Before you know it, childhood has been whisked away, the exams have been taken, and suddenly you’re out there, alone in the world. We spend our years meeting people, taking part in the workforce, and maybe even finding love, settling down. It all goes by in a whiz, your friends and family tell you what it was like, and you see pictures on the walls, hear the recordings of times gone-by almost as if they were someone else’s memories. One day, it ends. Most of us don’t know how, or when we’ll leave this life. Some leave peacefully, surrounded by family. Others depart, alone and in excruciating suffering. In the end, the real question is: does it matter?

86,400 seconds in a day. Each one tiny, but a fleeting moment in which small things are built, small things happen, and small things come to life. A marathon isn’t ran in a moment, passion doesn’t develop in a moment, genius is not created in a moment. It’s a collection of moments in which great things are built. Batches of seconds bunched together form minutes, hours, days, and then years, finally bearing the fruit of our efforts. In the end, grand feats are built upon the small and unseen details, just as the time span of a decade is built upon the seemingly minuscule moment of a second.

Time is everything. Each moment is precious, and should be spent doing something you care about, working towards your goals, or helping others.

Thank you for reading, and have a great day.
