Time is a mysterious thing. Some days feel long and arduous. Other days fly by in the blink of an eye. Life is short but made up of an infinite number of moments and seconds when you add it up. Eric Roth says,
For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.
I think I’ve learned that anything is possible with gratitude. As our lives change, as we dream of new dreams, gratitude can be our constant. If time is relative then let gratitude be our anchor. Tie it to the best things in your life. Little things, big things, it does not matter. I’m grateful for the time I have and life I live. Just trying to remember to take it one day at a time.
