How much time do we have?
This quote is from a movie I once say with Ryan Reynolds who played a history teacher who has cancer. He would ask his students how much time they had left and the students would reply, “Not much time”.
The lessons he was teaching his students was that we never know how much time we have. Also that the time we do have we should use wisely. A third lesson from this is to make time for the important things in in our lives like friends and family.
We really do not know how much time we have left or how much time our loved ones have. We should make time to spend time with them and make sure they know how much we love them. We need to make time to achieve our goals. We need to make time to be kind to others.
Another quote that I am reminded of as well is “The moment we are born is the moment we start dying.” I like this because it does remind you that life will end someday and you need to make the most of the days you have. You don’t have all the time in the world. Cherish what you have and don’t worry about what you don’t have.
Simply make time.
