The short answer is no. Time is precious.
Life isn’t a rehearsal
My aunt said that life is not a rehearsal during a conversation a few months’ ago. As soon as she said it it stuck with me. What can we learn from it?
- Cease the moment
- You cannot relive a moment in time. You simply cannot slow down or go back in time. So enjoy each and every moment of your time.
- Reliving a moment
- Even if you do the same things in order to try to repeat a day or evening you cannot relive or recreate a moment. Time is all about the here and now. Right now, you are spending your time reading this blog post. Hopefully it is useful? You cannot rewind and erase this post out of your short-term memory.
- Spending time with others
- Get to know the people in your life. Spend time with them. What is their favourite hobby? Do they like to drink alcohol?
Knowing just how precious time is allows each and every one of us to really appreciate the here and now. Do things you enjoy. This isn’t selfish. But remember to also make an effort with other people in your life. You cannot get time back. Do it. Enjoy doing it too.
