I love those lyrics man, couldn’t have said it better myself. It’s no secret that in this vastly changing world there’s a new wave of momentum and demand creating a perceived shortage of time that is quite commonplace for most of us. It seems like these days most of us have a relationship with time that is defined by pressure, shortage and limits. You ever talk to a friend that literally has no time to do anything? When you don’t fully understand the value of time it’s easy to take on more than one can bear. Nothing good about that.
As we all know time is quantifiable, it’s continued progress that we’re aware of and everyone abides by. Time can also be perceived, for example if you’re doing something terribly boring time can seem to go by painfully slow. Think about how time feels when you’re doing something lame, it can be slow and dreadful. Now look back at the last 5 years of your life, how fast have those come and go? It’s a wild concept when you think about that runs so deep it’s almost impossible to comprehend. In Idea of Happiness Van She captured this duality perfectly…
Time, just keeps on slipping away
I can feel the hands of the clock tick, tick, ticking away
But it’s nothing more than my mind slowly giving away
We got so much time, to think about yesterday
Just thinking on yesterday
If you’re not keeping up with time you’re going to be under constant pressure from it, always behind it . That leads to one of the most dangerous time killers I know of – dwelling on the past. Time waits for no man, it doesn’t stop so in order to keep up with it a person has to have a deep appreciation and discipline to make the most of it. Might sound cliche but it’s not something to be taken lightly, enjoy.
