Have you ever really looked up the definition of time?
Time , noun: Temporal length of event or entity's existence, period
Time, noun: Opportunity
I find this kind of funny. On one hand, time is a moment. It's temporary. On the other hand, it holds a world of opportunity. I'm not going to lie, I'm only a few days into my quest to 'document love' and it already has my brain reeling about how important every aspect of the word LOVE is. There are so many layers, so many things, objects, pets, people, vice's - you name it - that surround us in our everyday lives that we truly enjoy. The last month has been an interesting one for me, personally. I've been to a funeral, I've met some fantastic new people, I've loved, I've lost, l've grown, I've learned, I've seen my friends enter some amazing, life changing dreams and others have the weight of the world on their shoulders, I've been on emotional highs and lows - really, it's been a fucking roller coaster! Then again, maybe it's just the dead of winter in Minnesota! Either way, it's really made me reflect upon the time that we all have with the people in our lives.
Sometimes, life is going on it's merry way and we think that we have all the time in the world with people. Once something big happens, the fun and games are over and all of a sudden, things are very much so real-life. On the other hand, one of the most beautiful things in life is when certain people, lucky moments, etc. are introduced to us and there is an instant connection - and you run with it! I really feel that we are defined by the tough times in our life, just as much as we are by the fantastic moments! How we handle ourselves, how we process things, how we support each other - these are all very indicative of our character. My point is that time is a funny little thing that we should never take for granted, especially when it comes to our loved ones. I'm the number one offender for many times pushing people or things off, for selfish reasons or work, whatever. Our time - and what we choose to do with our time- is the most valuable thing we have. It is temporary, but at the same time, brings so much opportunity - and along with that, hope.
You're welcome for my emotional two cents today! :0) Enjoy!
