Time

The most valuable thing in the world is time. You see, life is what you make of it whether you choose bad or good the choice is up to you. But, you must remember your time is the most valuable thing you will ever contain. You see, we don’t know when our time is up, we don’t know when death could be standing at the door waiting for us. Which is why every second of every minute, of every hour should not be wasted. This is why we must not waste time worried about what someone else has to say about us. Seriously, why do we choose to waste time thinking about what other people have to say? Why do we waste time bitching and complaining about things that we have no control over? Why do we waste time feeling sorry for ourselves when we could be out bettering ourselves? Why do we waste time chasing after someone else’s wishes for us when we should be chasing after our own? I had to learn that you can’t waste your time bitching about something, if you aren’t going to do anything about it. You can’t waste your time on things that you have no control over, because the only thing you can control is how you respond. I had to learn that you can’t rewind time to go back to the good days, when you start going through the shitty ones. Life isn’t like that because while you are trying to stand still or move backwards, life is just going to keep on moving forward whether you like it or not. Time isn’t going to stand still for no one, which is why you can’t just waste it because you’ll never get that time back. Now, I know I’m young, but being 20 years old there are so many things I wish I could change. I wish I could go back in time and change my cousin’s death. I wish I could go back in time and ask out the girl who I was scared to ask. I wish I could go back in time and do the things in high-school I wanted to do, and I wish I could go back in time and tell my much younger self the things I know now. But I can’t, I can’t change anything that has already happened. The only thing I can do now is not waste my time and do everything that I want to do. If I don’t have the money for it, then I’ll earn it. If I don’t have the strength for it, then I’ll gain it. If I don’t have the knowledge for it, then I’ll learn it. The point is this, for now on I will not waste anymore time. I will do the things that I have always wanted to do without worrying about what comes my way. Because when time stops and the clock doesn’t tick anymore, I will have no regrets on what I didn’t do. Because I will have lived a fulfilled life without wasting any of my time.
