The Passage of Time

Definition of TIME

1 a: the measured or measurable period during which an action, process, or condition exists or continues : duration
b: a nonspatial continuum that is measured in terms of events which succeed one another from past through present to future
c: leisure <time for reading>
2 a: the point or period when something occurs : occasion
3 a: an appointed, fixed, or customary moment or hour for something to happen, begin, or end <arrived ahead of time>
b: an opportune or suitable moment <decided it was time to retire> —often used in the phrase about time <about time for a change>
b: a division of geologic chronology
c: conditions at present or at some specified period —usually used in plural <times are hard> <move with the times>
d: the present time <issues of the time>
 Here are a few things to ponder that relate to the ever-present elements of TIME.
Time is ever present                  Time is perfect
Time does not wait                    Time is  constant
Time is on my side                    Time is at hand
Time is patiently waiting       Time flies
Time goes by quickly              Time never ends
Time is the essence of life      Time is winding up
Time comes and goes            Time moves slowly
Time out                                  Time to go

Have you ever taken the TIME to really think about TIME? Or do you just use TIME without even given it a second thought. We take TIME for granted because we just expect it to be here for us. In reality we are on borrowed TIME, we alloted moments, seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, and years for our use. In our allotment of TIME we have no idea how long these increments will last, we are really operating on a moment by moment basis. Yet so often we tell people “I am taking it day by day”, with the hope that will make it through twenty-four hours. The lesson in this TIME exploration is that we need to pay more attention to TIME because our TIME can expire at any TIME.

Consider giving TIME a little more of your TIME, even when you do not think you have TIME for this exercise. When we take TIME and make TIME, we will surprise ourselves at what TIME really means in our lives. TIME can make the difference and TIME can be the difference. TIME can be wasted or TIME can be used as a resource. TIME adds to our lives, TIME subtracts from our lives,TIME divides in our lives, and TIME multiplies in our lives, this the beauty of TIME.

What TIME is it? TIME to pause and give TIME some TIME, before TIME decides to stop working on your behalf. TIME out for ignoring TIME, it deserves your respect. So join me as I give TIME it’s props for always showing up for me and making TIME even when I do not make TIME!

A period tells you that is that. With a semicolon you get a pleasant little feeling of expectancy ; there is more to come; read on; it will get clearer.
