Time. It is arguably our most valuable commodity. Unlike treasured gems, precious metals and any other prized possessions, time can't be hoarded, collected, earned, or bought with hard work, money, dignity or our soul. It slips away whether or not we choose to pack meaning into it. Use it or lose it, so goes the saying. Though we all know how limited our lives are in the time-space continuum, we sometimes act like we don't know the value of time. We use words like spend, kill or waste when we speak of how we while away the finite number of hours in each day.
Time management systems abound and still, we flounder and falter at making the most of every sunrise. We plan for the future and neglect to cherish the present. We'd rather look back wistfully even though the future is full of hope. Time. Like all the treasures in the world, we can't take it with us when we reach our final stop. Some among us may never be willing to embrace happiness in and with the time that we do have.
