Looking back, one can see how time used to go so slowly.
All remember sitting in a dreadful and boring class not listening to the teacher drone on and on and on about subjects that are not interesting at all (algebra).
As the years went by, can the realization that perception of time is subjective.
Many years ago now, waiting for the day, to take my first flight to Japan, waiting and waiting for the departure day.
This is an example of time moving very slowly.
Inevitably the departure day arrived over 3 decades ago now.
Waiting for the day my first child was to be born.
Waiting and waiting for that day, and then that day came went, and now this boy has become an outstanding man.
Always grateful for life today, and the opportunity to living in Japan.
Certainly death is something not given much thought.
Nevertheless, while not thinking about that day, it will come for certain, and it will be your turn to die, and your life will have past before you, in a blink of your eye.
If you have been waiting to do something in your own life, do so. We must live our life each day with intent and purpose; therefore, I urge your to wait no longer, because one day, for certain, it will be your turn to die.
