Ever had the wishful thinking “…that if I could only had a little more time”. If, anyone asks me, there are times when I wish the day was a lot more than just 24 hrs, but there are those days wherein I would just wish that time could fly. Ironical, ain’t it ?! But, the most common trnd seen today is the mad rush against time. The sad fact is that we hardly enjoy the little things that we do. To quote a few lines from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
How much more true, could this be !! Try to savour each moment, for nature has given us the right amount of time. 24 hrs a day, not too long nor too short.
Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived. – Captain Jean Luc Picard
played by Patrick Stewart, from the film “Star Trek: Generations”

So don’t panic, time may “seem” to run out, but so do moments and memories. Afterall, like the old adage says, “Haste makes waste”. Carpe diem !!!
