I've been thinking a lot about this lately. About time. I've been thinking mostly about the fact that we sell our time. Working on hourly jobs, I realized that those people pay me just because they don't have time to do those things. I don't do unusual things, I only write articles, edit videos and stuff like that. Nothing someone else couldn't do. It's just that others don't have time.
I think that at some point we realize how precious it is, and it will be too late. I mean, I kind of waste my time now, when I don't have jobs to do, but on one hand, I think this is the right time to waste time. I don't have bills to pay yet, I only work because it was my choice to work, not because I have to. I only work so that I can afford things without asking my mom to give me money. I've started when I was 16 and I don't think I'll ever stop.
On the other hand, sometimes I think that there's no time to be wasted. But then again, what if wasting time isn't wasted? What if by wasting time, we actually learn something?
Anyway, not every.. unproductive.. thing we do is necessarily wasted time. For example, going out with someone, spending time with someone. That is not wasted time, in my opinion. That is a gift. Just like the picture 'says', when you spend time with someone you give them a portion of your life that you will never get back. And then again, it's not just you who gives them your time, they also give you their time. I think that's wonderful.. :)
... until you run out of time. When you will, I think you'll either wish you've done something more productive with your time, either wish you've spent more time with them.
