It seems like I just started out blogging, but here I am, writing my 39th blog post. It’s just amazing how time flies by. I can’t believe that’s it’s been just over month since I started out. I also can’t believe that I’m gonna be a college first year student in just another 3 weeks. It seems like it all happened in an instant, but I know that it didn’t. The days were as long as they are supposed to, but my perception of time is just messed up (not surprising considering the fact that I don’t use watches, or calendar, or anything of that sort). Anyways, yesterday I read an article about this. It said:
Time is rather a feeling which escapes our notice while we are busy doing other stuff. We are so busy working and keeping appointments that we don’t even perceive time.
And I completely agree with it. Time was never an issue, it was just our focus. We are so busy with our lives, and when we suddenly stop and look back, the sudden realization hits our mind that we’ve come a long way from where we were. It almost feels like we’re in a game where you can live multiple days within a couple of hours (I’m talking about harvest moon kinda games here, if you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you probably know that I really like life simulation games).
Can you believe it? The one thing we consider most important is something we don’t care much about, after all. We say time is a valuable thing, but we still don’t know it’s value, because, well, we have a lot of it. As a matter of fact, we’ll have time till we take our last breath, so what matters is what we do with that time. What we do with our life. No matter what you do, you’re gonna utilize time, and the thing is whether that activity is going to assist us in the future, or not. If it does we call it “using” our time, and if it doesn’t serve us, we call it “wasting” time, that’s all. So, it doesn’t matter if you lose track of time, and your progress as long as you are continuing to do what you are doing, because there will be a time when you’ll look back, and get amazed at how fast time has been flowing.
I think this lack of perception of time, actually makes life a bit amazing. Think about how beautiful it will be to sit under the stars, gazing them, musing about how fast time has went by, with the feeling of nostalgia spreading all over the body, and the moonlight and the cool breeze delicately touching our skin….it almost feels like we could live in that bitter-sweet feeling forever. These are the kinda moments that makes living worth it. It’s simply magical. So, yeah, time is just a feeling, and it is a beautiful feeling at that.
