A Little Thought About Time

Time is not my friend, it is slipping sand. As much as I want to hold on to it, it evades me.
I created a reminder on my phone, that shows up daily. I really need to actually read it instead of clicking it, as done.

We inhabit time. We don’t own it, spend it, or waste it. It is what it is and all we can do is manipulate actions with it, and anticipate what happens or what will happen. We know more about it by studying it the patterns and situations of the past. All I know is I can control my actions and efforts within it; that is enough to pursue my desires.

The idea behind the words is why I have it set to go off every day. The last few weeks and the next to come up have felt out of my control. Like I cannot get anything I want to get done. Like I cannot maintain the progress I have made. Instead, I have to surf the situations I am compelled to be in. They aren’t bad situations, most are good and necessary. Life though is a ferocious lioness and will take what you got and more if you will give it to her. She has cubs to feed. Your wasted time isn’t going to be enough, she will claw into the time you set aside for yourself. Beware, busy people will always be asked to do more. Fight for your time.
