Have you noticed that when you hear a ticking clock (I know there are less and less of them around these days), and you’re trying to sleep or concentrate on something, the ticking clock is all you can hear!
When we hear the clock ticking as every second goes by, so we focus on that noise, but do we realise we’re actually listening to time passing, as we do that?
I’ve wasted a lot of time over the years, not just listening to loud ticking clocks, but generally in my life. I can think of many occasions where looking back now, I wish I had spent more time with particular people, spent more time doing the things I love, or concentrating on what is really important in life.
No matter how much we want to stop time or go back in time, we can’t, so don’t miss out on those once in a lifetime situations or events just because you’re too busy doing something that could have waiting. Make time for the people and the things that are important to you.
