Thoughts - Occtober 13, 2016

"Rich people can't buy more hours; scientists can't invent new minutes. And you can't save time to spend it on another day. Even so, time is amazingly fair and forgiving. No matter how much time you've wasted in the past, you still have an entire tomorrow." Dennis Waitley.
Time certainly is the great equalizer, isn't it? Although I love to 'waste' time doing the things that bring me pleasure (who doesn't?!), I'm not so sure how to define 'wasted'. When I look back on my life, the memories are often made up of the time I spent with friends, family, good books, vacations, and the like. Yet, I also am grateful for my variety of jobs and the years of doing meaningful work. (perhaps all work is meaningful, if done with passion?!) And even as a daydreamer, I can't say those moments that brought imagination, stories, and solutions for problems were wasted. Some may say FB itself is a time-waster, but I have cherished the chance to become reacquainted with friends from my past, as well as connecting with new folks who add ideas, humor, and beauty to my current world. Yes, time is amazingly fair -- listen to and love each moment. - Beth Almond Ford
