Today Is Gone

The constraints of time should heighten our awareness as each day draws to a close. Another day has passed and I reflect, "How much time did I waste?" This is not an intended guilt trip as time spent with friends, family, and peers should be seen in a constructive light and not as a waste of time. Wasting time happens when one yields to the desire to postpone activities that should be attempted. Wasting time happens when one fore goes that which is important and focuses on that which accomplishes nothing. Setting on a porch and watching the sun go down should be therapeutic and not wasting time. Watching children frolic on a playground should be rejuvenating and not wasting time. Writing a note of appreciation should build relationships and is not wasting time.
