It's All About Time

When I was younger and looked ahead , time seemed to move so slowly….
I could hardly imagine what other folks often said.

“Ang bilis ng oras.”
“Lunes na naman, trabaho na naman.”
“Tapos na ang day-off…”

But, as I aged older, the years seem short now. I even sometimes hear myself say…

“Pasukan na naman?”
“Di ko man lang na-enjoy ang sembreak.”

And now, I can SOMETIMES realize the brevity of life.
Sometimes… ?

Yes! Kasi may mga araw sa buhay ko bilang estudyante na nasasabi ko…

“Ang tagal naman magbakasyon. Tagal ng sembreak!”
“Hay! Ang tagal naman ng class. Tinatamad na ko!!!”
“Di pa ba uwian? Bato na ko!”

I know! Nagdaan ka rin sa ganyan. Nasabi mo rin yan!
But still, I can realize how short life is. “Life is fleeting as vapor”, the Bible says. Para lang tayong mga bula. We appear for a little time and then vanish away. QUESTIONS,
Paano mo ba nagamit ang TIME mo?

Paano mo nagamit ang kung ide-describe ko, the most precious commodity on earth….
Yung the most precious gift one can give to someone…

…one of the scarce resources kung gagamitan natin ng economy

Looking back to our lives, nasan na nga ba tayo?

Have we been achieving our goals?

Maybe you are wondering.. ang bata ko pa para isipin yan ah! Pero

It’s not bad to review our lives once in a while. It’s not bad to do it while we are young.
Have we made the most out of our limited days?

Kung medyo alanganin ang mga sagot mo, well…
We cannot change it. We cannot do something to how we spent our time in the past.
Wala naman tayo noong “dagger and sand of time” na tulad nung sa Prince of Persia to turn back time and…

Wala rin tayong magic takure na sumisigaw lang ng

“lilipad lilipad takure”

then kung saang time
zone na tayo napunta.

We cannot prolong our time. Our problem is not to increase what is remaining but how wisely to use on daily allotment of those 1440 minutes or 86400 seconds.

Let’s try not to waste time.
Be productive!
Spend it with our loved ones and friends!

"Number your days to make it count."
"Wasting the gift of time insults the Giver of time."
