Time: An old social construct


Time is a social construct which humans created to plan and schedule their lives. Whilst this view on time is necessary today in order to manage an ever increasingly busy world around us, it still remains of most importance to relish in the time we spend in our lives whilst we live out our days.

Time is precious and thus, arguably, should be one of our most treasured aspects of life itself.  Time is both beautiful, as it is the starting point to all our dearest memories, but time can be equally as unpredictable as no one truly knows how much time one has left to spend. Make the most of your time and spend your time well as it is a gift. Think of life as a mountain hike – there will be moments in life where you pass through peaceful fields (this symbolising your easy, happy and harmonious times of your life) and then there will be moments where you begin to pass over very rocky gravel on a very steep incline (this symbolising your difficult, sad and troublesome times of your life). When you find yourself faced with a mountain in front of you and some rocky terrain too, all that you would have to do is take it step by step and you will find great power in yourself for you are stronger and more tenacious than you think.    

Always prioritise your positive thoughts and try to always live your life whilst being embraced in the “present time”.

“Life is so transient and ephemeral; we will not be here after a breath. So think better, think deeply, think with kindness, and write it with love so that it may live a little longer.”
