If we appreciate the great potential of this life, we shall not waste it.

The second hand swings mercilessly forward, never faster, never slower, just constant. Each second crashing through time as we watch and wonder why we are here. But life is not a spectator sport. It is one of participation and appreciation. Do not watch the seconds moving forward, for they will travel at a constant speed with you, or without you.

The seconds will turn into minutes, the minutes will turn into hours and so on. So what will you do with your time? I have wasted enough time watching the seconds and now the seconds feel as if they move faster than before, even though I know it is not a truth, but the feeling is real to me.

I will not waste another second. I will not waste another breath. I will race along life through fulfillment by trying what I always wondered if I could, and attempt what I always thought was possible. For only when I try will I know if I can, but at least I will live the potential of my life as no tragedy in life, is greater than potential going unfulfilled or untried. I will embrace failure along the way as I understand that each failure brings me closer to success and closer to understanding why I am here. Have a creative day.

  1. What I find interesting is how others perceive if one has wasted their time. For instance, I help my grown children whenever they call and ask me…sometimes it might be hard work…but I am happy and ready to be there whenever they call and ask. My mother, however, many times tells me I am crazy to do so much for them…that I should use my time for myself…but for me any time I can help my kids is time well spent. It’s all a matter of perspective. I absolutely LOVE the last picture in the fifth row…when I saw it all I could visualize is the remains of Camelot…it feels as if I could walk right into the picture! 🙂


  2. I used to worry about what people thought but I don’t think it help you be happy. I don’t mean this in a selfish way but rather not worrying about what people think because you do certain things with your time, as it is exactly that, YOUR TIME.

    that picture is actually from a global photography competition, it’s amazing.

    Have a great day. take care Alan.


  3. Too many people are living an unconscious life. It’s sad that people have accepted that they have to coast through life, but that’s not what I signed up when I came to this planet! Our time and our life is in our own hands, and how we spend our time is important. Makes you think about life and how by making small changes to our daily routines can make a big change in our lives.


  4. I think it is very easy to fall into a routine that feels like you are coasting through life. We have to break it up as much as possible or we fade away as a person.

    Great comment Seth, as always. Thank you. Take care Alan
