We can’t weigh time or put it into the pocket, we can’t see it or give it to someone. Sometimes, a catastrophic lack of time ruins our plans, but it also happens that an excess of time makes us want to get rid of it faster.
When we talk about values, our imagination usually draws money or gold, cars or villas. And we seldom think of people though they play an important role in our lives. I have no doubt that we often forget about such value as our time.
They say time is money, but in my opinion, money can hardly be compared with time. Our life, the most priceless thing on Earth, consists of short periods of time: seconds, minutes, hours, days, years...
Time doesn’t stand still, and as usual its running becomes noticeable only when we look back and wonder how quickly the year has flown away.
The tireless countdown of time begins from our birth, and we can’t say exactly how much of it is at our disposal. Perhaps, everyone wishes to turn the march of time back. Being in fear of losing money we don’t think about losing time. Missing or incorrectly used time can be a much bigger problem for a man than the loss of material things. To a lesser or greater extent, many of us feel nostalgic about the things we have done and would like to correct the mistakes. The irreversible flow of time makes our life a real whirlwind of events, affairs, successes and failures.
I think people should appreciate their past life and the experience gained over the years. It will help not only to realise the mistakes but also to correct many irregularities and fill gaps, and maybe change the direction of our future time completely.
People often say they have no time for their favourite activities or rest, but as for me, everything depends on priorities.
Properly used time opens up new opportunities for us, helps us understand and feel the values of life better, brings us peace, joy and satisfaction, makes us look at lots of things in a different way.
