Quote of the day for Thursday, April 20, 2017
Lost wealth may be replaced by industry, lost knowledge by study, lost health by temperance, but lost time is gone forever.” – Samuel Smiles
I looked back at yesterday and saw the remnants of wasted moments scattered around. I had literally sat around and watched the time go by and lost that time forever.
My son and I were discussing a choice he made and he explained to me the reasons behind his disobedience. I explained that it mattered little what the excuse was for his choice, his choice was wrong.
It hit me.
My choice is wrong. Anytime I choose to discard time like it comes from an unlimited reservoir, then I am choosing wrong. I need to be purposeful in the choices of my moments, my minutes, yes, even my seconds because once they are gone they are lost forever.
I will be purposeful in my time and I will make the most of each moment that passes my way.
