As I sat pondering my progress in life one night I was struck with the thought of time…the thought that “time waits for no one”… the thought that if we don’t go for it, we may never… but also the thought that we spend so much time trying to think of what to do next that we miss what may be happening to us right in that very moment. Time is something that is constantly moving forward, though we may “take a moment to pause”, that actually that paused moment is still a moving moment, it is still taking us into the next moment, the next moment in time. I have read many times that if we wait for the right time to go after something that we miss it, that there is never a right time, there is just right now. So I find myself caught in a manner of trying to balance enjoying every moment of my life but not stalling to the point that I miss the opportunities presented to me.
I let myself (even though it may not be my most artistically inclined entry – I love my little clocks though – maybe this will be an art journal entry to reinvent at a later date!) draw this thought, this reminder, into my art journal so that I may be reminded not only to always take advantage of opportunities, and challenges, and lessons, but also to remind myself to savor each moment of my life.
“Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it, you can never get it back.” ~ Harvey Mackay
