Time Accelerated

Scientifically speaking

Time does not go by more quickly

As we age.


From my perception

I think whoever said it first

Was onto something.

In reality

As I listen to the ticking clock

In our living room…

Don’t ask me why we bought one that ticks

I still haven’t figured it out…


As I listen to it

I realize it’s just a constant reminder that

I have a limited amount of time

To accomplish the unlimited number of things

I want to do.


Before I jump off the cliff

And fly into the week

I must prioritize.

Too often

The things that are truly important

Get relegated to the leftovers

Leftover time.

Leftover energy.

Not good.

I think one difference between

Living a successful life

And an unsuccessful one will be

My attitude toward time constraints.

Does the realization that

I have only “x” number of days

Cause me to fatalistically throw up my hands

And give up?

Or does it challenge me

To invest every moment wisely?

I must map my route

Placing the most important destination

At the top of my itinerary.

seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own (Matthew 6:33-34 NIV).
