"Time" is the indefinite continued progress of existence and events in the past, present, and future regarded as a whole. Try as we might, we may not visit any other timeframe other than the current one in which we exist. We remember the past and plan for the future but always live within each present moment.
STAGNATION IN TIME
For many, regret comes from actions taken, lack of action, or wasting time. Some relish in the reminiscence of time well spent.
Some people, equipped with experience and wisdom or naivety and ignorance, go to extensive lengths to plan and create the best possible future they can imagine. Others give little to no thought when making decisions for the future.
Upon further inspection of these behaviors, several self-fulfilling cycles present themselves. Often, a lack of balance between all parts of the whole creates stagnation. One could be stuck in the past or overly focused on what comes next. While there's no single way to rectify these cycles of stagnation, maximization of the present moment is a great place to start.
THE POWER IS YOURS
Everyone makes mistakes at one point or another. Did you learn a lesson from a mistake? How does that lesson affect you in the present moment? What actions are you taking now to enhance your tomorrow?
Everyone struggles with controlling their emotions from time to time. How will your responses affect you, those around you, and your future? How might you deal with the current situation to minimize potential, sometimes unavoidable, damage and maximize growth and positivity for the future?
Remembering great moments of your life should motivate you to create more moments to recall in the future. Time has a way of changing the way we live our lives. Determining why specific activities bring you inner happiness steers you toward new activities that bring you the fulfillment you desire.
A new day of life is a gift. Are you satisfied with how you have used the gift of your life? As human beings, our conscious time on this Earth is finite. There are always more things to learn, ways to grow, people to meet, ways to help, and things to do. Be the best you can be, and live a life you are proud to call your own.
Psalms 90:12 - So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
