Colin Walsh/ Personal Journal Entry: Time, Time, Time

by Colin Walsh

January 3, 2012

I can still remember the old maxim from my childhood, “as soon as you graduate from high school, time is going to fly.” I remember hearing this over and over again when I was young. I always used to think, “yea right”.

Now I wish I would have taken this statement more seriously. Because as I watch time begin to fly by me I realize how valuable time is. Time is our most valuable asset. Time is the only thing that everyone has equal amounts but nobody ever has enough. But still everyone has the exact same amount. The only difference is what we choose to do with out time.

Time is malleable; we can transform it into anything we want. Time can become anything we want it to. It can become money, knowledge, power, strengths, relationships, or it can become the complete opposite of each of those. But in the end time is never wasted, because it can never be stopped or destroyed. Time never stops for anyone. It doesn’t matter where we are, what we are doing, or how we feel, time continues to move on. This is why I feel that everyone must grasp each moment and use it to work toward something, anything. Everyone has a equal opportunity to turn their time into something. What are you turning your time into now?
