Access Point <The Speed of Life>
“Life, when measured by time, flies by at the rate of 60 seconds per minute, 60 minutes per hour, and 24 hours per day. While it may not seem significant in the moment, eventually we run out of moments.”
- James K. McPartland
Time is a non renewable resource that we all too often waste, spend foolishly, or fail to value. There always seems to be a future time to get to the things we want to get to. Perhaps it is after the quarter, once the kids go back to school, after the holidays, or when we are “ready” that we will maximize the time we have available to us.
Tonight, somewhere in your town, state, country, or part of the world, someone will not make it home. A life will end in an accident, by an illness, or from “natural” causes. When you ask someone who has a level of awareness of their own life’s fragility about what they would give anything for, the answer is time. Time to get healthy, tell someone that they love them, say they were sorry, ask for forgiveness, take a chance, be themselves, laugh, have fun, dance, inquire, face a fear, or recognize all that they have to be grateful for. In the next 1,440 minutes another day will have passed and we are one step closer to having our own time run out. So... What are you waiting for?
