I have been fascinated by an idea lately: time. It seems amazing to me that every second that goes by is another moment in our lives. This second seems like such a small amount of time and this is what fascinates me. How you spend not just every day, but every second, determines who you are, what you do, and the goals you accomplish. Every second, of every minute, of every day, there is an opportunity for something great to happen. Once that second is used up, we can never relive it; we can never create a new moment.
This is an incredible concept to realize and it is one that is hard to wrap my mind around. Are people supposed to live every second to the fullest? How would one do that? What can someone accomplish in one second? After looking at these questions, I realized another important concept is that it is not just about one individual second, but a collection of second. What are we doing in this second that is going to make our next second extraordinary?
Every second we need to look for opportunities and take advantage of life. We need to do what we want before our seconds run out; which could be any second. We cannot let fear or worry hold us back from going after our goals at this moment, at this second. We need to fight every second to make our dreams a reality. If we stop for just one second, we can never get it back and every second counts.
Although a second is a short amount of time, a lot can happen in a second. One second you can be reading a book on the train, the next second you could be talking to your soul mate. One second you could be walking down the street, the next second you can be given an opportunity to change someone’s life. However, one second you could be on top of the world, the next second you can make a bad choice that leads to your down fall. This is how we live every second to the fullest, we make every second count. We make those choices that are good for us, and others, that will lead us to a place where we want to be.
Some people spend their seconds where they want to be, such as exploring the world, helping others, or making their dreams come true. How do you spend your seconds?
