Once upon a TIME

Once upon a time, I watched the film Alice through the glass. It was a clever little film and the concept of time which it was based on, struck a chord with me. Initially, I thought of time as a stopwatch and associated it merely as a unit of measurement. However, the concept of time means so much more. The film encouraged me to see that although Time waits for no one, Time is not your enemy nor is it a ticking bomb. Instead one should view Time as your friend that you must work with, to make the most of the gift of Time that has been given. It is true that we can’t get Time back and as we come to acknowledge this, we suddenly realise that every moment must be used wisely. 

You can’t use the excuse that you don’t have the Time, as we all have the same 24 hours a day. It’s how you choose to use it. Admittedly it is easy to forget how precious Time is with the busy lifestyle that we have willingly adopted. So it is important to remember amongst it all, that although Time flies, you are the pilot with the ability to direct it and steer it in how you wish. So I urge you to make the most of every precious day, every hour, every minute to create timeless memories. Tick tock. What are you waiting for?

The sad fact is that to know someone’s name has become a good enough reason to spend your free time learning more about their life. This is all very well and passes the time, yet ironically excessive use of social media has in fact made us unsociable. Continue reading
