Does this apply to you?
“The trouble is you think you have time” Buddha
The answer, if you’re being honest, is probably – yes it does.
We all think we will always have more time.
We know on an intellectual level we wont. We understand the concept that our time here is limited. We see the evidence all around us.
And yet we often don’t accept it on an emotional level, and don’t act in accordance with it.
We carry on living our lives as if there will always be a tomorrow. Another time for us to make the changes we want to make and live the lives we want to live.
Maybe even another time somewhere in the future when we’ll be happy. With that happiness depending on changes we have yet to make.
So we find ourselves saying I’ll be happy when…(fill in the blank).
If this all sounds a bit depressing, what about this then?
Yesterday is history, Tomorrow a mystery.
Today is a gift, that’s why it’s called the Present.
This is the flip side.
We can only ever really know the here and now – the present. Which is more reason to make the most of each day.
This saying also captures the essence of mindfulness – of living in the present moment and being mindful of the here and now.
Time is an odd concept.
We take it for granted but what is it?
Is it a conceptual construct or convenient unit for us to measure changes and progress?
And how do we relate to it in our personal lives.
These are some of the questions we’re asking in episode 33 of The Changeability Podcast – where we’re talking about The Time of Your Life.
We get a bit philosophical in this episode as we talk about time and how we relate to it, based on 3 things that happened this week to bring the subject of time to the front of our minds.
