The Time You Have

We are all given the same present. One day or one night we were a miracle. A miracle of life. We changed someone’s life on that day. We were given life. A simple complex thing that we didn’t realize. With life came time. To this day we still don’t know how to manage time. Time is such a simple unit of measurement, yet it measures our entire life span. Everything we do is measured in time.

The thing is with time, we never know how much we have left. Our lives right now could be changing and we have no idea. In one second, everything could change. You never know when something will be the last time. It’s a scary thought that we all try avoid. Living in the moment seems to help alleviate that idea. Even thinking about the future. Being optimistic and thinking of what will happen and not what won’t happen.

Imagine you knew how much time you had left. What would you do? It’s an interesting question. What if you had one day left, what would you do? In the YouTube video, The Time You Have (In JellyBeans), displays how much time we have left, essentially. How much time we waste. We spend so much time do routine activities, then at the end we aren’t left with much. The thing is people sacrifice their time in hopes of a better tomorrow, when instead they should make everyday meaningful.

“Happiness is not a destination. It is a mood, it is not permanent. It comes and goes and if people thought that way then maybe people would find happiness more often,” from the tv show One Tree Hill.

People spend so much time thinking that one day everything will work out. That if they stress themselves out that it will benefit them in the future. In all honesty, no one knows what the future will bring. All your work could be for nothing, but it could end up being for something. No one knows. But wouldn’t you rather have life filled with happiness and special moments than saying that I will be happy someday. Someday can be today.

Did you say it? I love you. I dont ever want to live without you. You changed my life. Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it. But every now and then look around. Drink it in. Cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow,” from Grey’s Anatomy.
