If you want to know how you are spending your time, check how you are living your life. Life is time. Time is life. Here are 3 valuable lessons you can learn from TIME that can change how you live your life.
Time lost is time not used.
“Time lost is time when we have not lived a full human life, time unenriched by experience, creative endeavor, enjoyment, and suffering. Time lost is time not filled, time left empty.”- Dietrich Bonhoeffer
That is why you should enjoy every moment of your life. Because if you don’t enjoy it, it will never come back to you. Remember, you are not going to be here forever. For that reason, you must do whatever you can to live a full human life.
Stop chasing the past.
“You shouldn’t chase after the past or place expectations on the future. What is past is left behind. The future is as yet unreached. Whatever quality is present you clearly see right here, right there.”- Gautama Buddha
I can’t separate myself from my past. But if I want to go forward, if I want to do great things in my life, I MUST stop chasing the past. You can do the same for your own life.
Do not adhere to your past. Let it go.
“Those who adhere to the past won’t be able to cope with the future.”- Willy Brandt
Yes, your past is important, but do not live there. It is over. If you want to experience the future, you must detach yourself from your past. Do not let your past hold you back from living in the moment, in the Now. Because everything is happening right here, right now. Enjoy it!
