A week ago today I lost someone very dear to my heart, my beautiful Irish Setter, Casey. She was with us for 8 years and was 13 years old when she passed. This incredible loss and the grieving process has made me think very much about “TIME”. The last week has been as if time has stood still, making the week so very long and hard, and the time I had with Casey, gone so very fast. I long for the extra 5 years Casey was alive before I met her, and I continue to wish that the 8 years I spent with my Casey would have lasted an eternity.
Time just keeps ticking no matter what we do… we wish we had more time, or that things took less time. We wish we could have longer time on vacation and less time at work… our lives revolve around time.
If we could make every minute count and understand the value of the time we have, truly making the best of that time, our schedules and our plans… we could have less to regret. Death is something we do not have control over, how long we have with our loved ones is not up to us. We do however, have the power to make better use of “TIME” and learn to enjoy each minute of it, no matter what we have planned to do!
We owe it to our families, friends, professions and goals to allocate our time wisely. Starting today I am using my time to remember my beautiful girl while I work hard to spend each new minute I have doing something that makes a difference for the better! I challenge you to do the same.
Have a week filled with wonderful minutes!
