"seconds that will flash before your eyes, and they are not coming back"
I’ve just been ill for almost a week. Just a little cold. But being mentally less than able for a few days made it very clear how incredibly fragile we all are.
I’m no longer going to be frivolous with my time and my rest. I’m too old and life is too short. I will try, desperately, to take my rest seriously. So that I can give my life my all, every day.
There’s just so much I want to do. And so many things I’d like to try. There is no time to be sick, to fall apart, to have breakdowns.
These aren’t diseases of affluence, they’re indulgences of the pampered. And I can’t be a part of that anymore.
I realize change can’t be instant. I realize I will fail from time to time. But this is my turning point, from now on I will get better at this. Until it becomes completely natural. And something I hardly think about.
Time to take myself seriously. And take the moments of my life at face value. These are the moments. These are the times. They are the seconds that will flash before your eyes, and they are not coming back.
