The title was once spoken by a wise man by unfortunately his time ran out in 2011. If any of you don’t know who spoke these words, it was Steve Jobs. One of the most successful men in the world but still didn’t have all the time in the world. A lot of people take time for granted and are very wasteful of it but to others it is precious. Sadly, people’s times can be limited but what you shouldn’t forget is to embrace that moment with that person or people because you won’t be able to relive that moment again.
A lot of people wish to be rich, own billions of pounds, dollars etc, be famous and so much more but what we take for granted is, yes you guessed it, time. No matter, how many things you possess whether it be a fancy car or something of less price, these material items don’t extend our lives. Remember that whatever you may own might not be as good as others but you may have more time in your life than them. Time cannot be bought, so don’t ever forget that. For example, if a billionaire was diagnosed with an incurable disease, their money couldn’t buy them a longer life. Whatever financial state you are, don’t worry because we all end up the same way, our time will come one day.
Don’t waste your time on something pointless because whatever you are doing might not affect your future like whether you should of had your hair straight or curly for school. Small things like that are wasteful of time, don’t bother over things like that, do what you are supposed to be doing and make use of your time. Who cares of what others think of you, do what you think is best for you; what will eventually help you out in the future because people who judge others that are careful with their time are usually the ones who have wasted precious moments in their life.
A song inspired me to write about this, some of you may have heard it. The song is called “The Chronicles Of Life and Death” by Good Charlotte. If you haven’t heard it, I recommend you do because the lyrics in this song, is the message I want to send out plus the band are really good! The song basically outlines our lives hence the name and it is one of the best songs I have heard with a great message.
“Time is free but priceless. You can’t keep it but you can spend it. Once you have lost it, you can never get it back.” This quote pretty much sums it up. Sometimes I sit in class and daydream about how much time I have wasted in life already but then I encourage myself to grasp onto every moment I have in school or as a teen outside of school because I already regret wasting my childhood and I can’t afford to waste my teen years. Hold onto every moment you can. Don’t wait for the perfect moment, make that moment perfect. Take time today to appreciate someone you would usually take for granted because time could catch up to them any day.
As always, I hope you enjoyed this blog and hopefully grasped the message I am trying to send across. Thanks for reading xoxo
