One of The Best Gifts You Can Have


We are all given the gift of time. But those of us who value this gift understand that at any given moment we might encounter ourselves having our last breath.

Remember all those things you told yourself you were going to do? Now is the best time to do them.

Time doesn’t know about excuses.  It doesn’t know about job titles either. It will sneakily pass by if you are not aware of it.

Time wants you to give it the value it deserves.

So, are you wasting your gift?

You are wasting your time if you live life by default – if nothing makes you jump out of bed and say, “ok let’s do this.”

You are wasting your time if you are spending it with complainers.

You are wasting your time if you are using it to create stress.

You are wasting your time if you are using it to compare yourself to others.

You are wasting your time when you are searching for happiness. Happiness isn’t something you find, it is something you create.

So, what does time like?

Time likes when you invite him for breakfast. When you eat mindfully while appreciating the people around you.

Time likes when you get up every day, feeling thankful for the things and people that surround you.

Time loves when you press play and get that workout done, or when you go for long walks in nature.

Time likes when you are creative, and passionate at the same time.

When you are having fun.

When you spread love and kindness to others.

Time is your birthright and one of the best gifts you can have. No currency is as valuable as time. If you have it, use it wisely.

“The trouble is, you think you have time.” – Buddha
