The Time We Can't Get Back
We lose it through inattention and laziness. Through grudges and forgiveness we can't allow ourselves to extend. Through stubbornness and hurt and anger.
And we can't ever get it back. It's gone. That time... it's gone.
So we have to be intentional. We have to choose how we're going to spend it, how we want to spend it. We have to decide what's important to us, to our loved ones, to our friends. We have to make the choices, and sometimes do the hard things, so that we don't lose any more of that time to the past.
Because once it's gone, it's gone, and there's no reclaiming it.
But the time that's yet before us... this time, we get to decide. We get to decide what's important, who's important. We get to decide what makes up that time.
Just remember to choose that time wisely... spend it on things that, when we look back in 10, 20 years, we'll say "I'm glad I spent the time on that. I'm glad I didn't waste it."
