Time Stops for No One, September 21 Daily Reflection


Time stops for no one! We are limited by the time we have on this earth yet we take it all for granted thinking that tomorrow will be there every day. We plan our lives as though we will live to be 85 and we will have the chance to do it all another day, sometime in the future.

What things do you want to do before you die? What places do you want to see? Who do you want to make amends with in this life? Who do you want to love more?

We think we have all the time in the world to accomplish all these things on our list. However, we do not know the date, time or location of our demise. What if it happens tomorrow?  We cannot shove it all in today. But we need to live each day more fully.

What would happen if we choose just one significant thing to do each day? What if we wrote down a list of all that we want to accomplish before we die? You know the bucket list, not just the feasible things but all of it. What if we wrote it all down and each day we chose one thing from it to attempt each day? We would live our lives more fully, with more meaning. We would actually be living instead of simply taking up space.

Time stops for no one and it is unforgiving and can never be turned back. So don’t waste a second of it, embrace it, utilize it and live it to the fullest today.
