Moments Are Precious


I received this beautiful card with the saying above from a sweet and loving friend. How easy do we take each moment for granted? How easy is it to take each other for granted? If we remember that our time is limited, and each minute passes means we’ll have a minute less to be alive, then we would see that time is precious. Time always moves forward, once it’s gone, we can’t retrieve it. So let’s not take each moment and each other for granted.

“When one is still alive, one may think that there is plenty of time. The fact is every time I meet you, there is one lesser chance to meet you again…”

Thank you so much for the wonderful friendship and the reminder ❤️

Be well,

RL

  1. I read this story somewhere… and it could related to this piece of blog.. here it is to share with u..

    -A Very Special Bank Account-

    Imagine you had a bank account that deposited $86,400 each morning. The account carries over no balance from day to day, allows you to keep no cash balance, and every evening cancels whatever part of the amount you had failed to use during the day. What would you do? Draw out every dollar each day!

    We all have such a bank. Its name is Time. Every morning, it credits you with 86,400 seconds. Every night it writes off, as lost, whatever time you have failed to use wisely. It carries over no balance from day to day. It allows no overdraft so you can’t borrow against yourself or use more time than you have. Each day, the account starts fresh. Each night, it destroys an unused time. If you fail to use the day’s deposits, it’s your loss and you can’t appeal to get it back.

    There is never any borrowing time. You can’t take a loan out on your time or against someone else’s. The time you have is the time you have and that is that. Time management is yours to decide how you spend the time, just as with money you decide how you spend the money. It is never the case of us not having enough time to do things, but the case of whether we want to do them and where they fall in our priorities.
