Time is a funny thing.
It never does what you want it to.
It moves too fast.
It moves too slow.
It stands still.
It refuses to stop.
To give you one more hour.
One more minute.
One more second.
Time moves on.
It is Ephemeral.
And yet, time will not be moved.
We must face the facts.
Time cannot be bargained with.
It cannot be bought.
It cannot be saved.
It cannot be returned.
It cannot be redeemed.
Time cannot be controlled.
And it will not be manipulated.
However, time can be savored.
Time can be enjoyed.
It can be treasured.
Unfortunately, time can also be wasted.
Time is the one thing we all want more of.
It is also the thing we want less of.
No matter what we do, we cannot create time.
We can only manage it.
And this is complicated.
Because even though we can measure an infinite amount of time,
We cannot measure the finite amount of time we have been given.
Some are given a century.
Most several score.
Less are given decades.
A handful have only years.
Too many are given a few hours and minutes.
A tick of the clock. A breath of time.
And yet, no matter how much or how little,
The time we are given is a gift.
A gift to be used.
Time impacts us.
We do not impact it.
But we can leave our mark on it.
The telling of our time for generations to come.
And we are all saying the same thing
Use your time for good.
