How much does time really matter is a question that depending on your age can vary outrageously. For example: If you are a child time seems to pass very slowly but if you are old it appears to pass rapidly.
When I was a little girl I couldn’t wait to get out of school to go and play, but time dragged by and every lesson seemed to go on forever. Yet as I grew older over the years time started to accelerate and now it feels as if there are never enough hours in the day to achieve the tasks I wish to accomplish, plus it seems to me that everything I do takes longer to do then it used to when I was younger.
It is such a shame that one cannot put an old head on young shoulders. If I could go back in time with the knowledge that I have accumulated during my lifetime I could achieve so much more.
I remember my mother telling me as a teenager that I should not burn the candle at both ends as I needed my sleep, goodness how I wish I had completely ignored that advice, now I am nearing retirement age I find myself too tired to burn the candle at both ends and regret not doing so more when I had the strength, energy and was youthful enough to do so.
Time does matter and we should not waist a moment of it for life really is too short. It is only when we get older or loose someone we love who is young that this realization really hits us and sinks into our heads.
Do not ever imagine that tomorrow never comes because it is here and we call it today. Yesterday is already gone.
When one puts off till tomorrow the things we really want to do or the things we wish to tell others, such as I love you. Then we will always regret it later, and later may not come, we might get hit by a bus on our way home and I for one would want those I love to know how I feel about them, in order for others to know for sure how we feel about them now is always the right time to tell them.
I do not exaggerate in my opinion time does matter. Hug your loved ones, tell them you love them. Complete your projects be it a book or anything else, never let the grass grow under your feet or the weeds will take over and you will have wasted you time on earth.
