If you’re 20, you might feel like you have all the time in the world. I remember feeling that way myself. Time wasn’t something I really thought about in a deep way.
But that was before I started collecting various responsibilities.
Now time is something I seem to think about quite often these days.
When you pass a certain mile marker in life, you become more aware of some things (and people) you’ve taken for granted. There are many things that can be replaced if you lose them, but time is not one of those things.
Even though we can’t “make” more time or get it back, we surely can make better use of the time we have.
This seems like a good place to quote Gandalf.
“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.”
So what does this all have to do with chicken?
It’s amazing how easy it is to ponder life while checking on your BBQ drumsticks in your Oster Roaster.
So I’ve made a deal with myself to be more aware of how I use “the time that is given me”; to invest more of it in people and less in trending topics or TV shows or dwelling on things I can’t change.
Not that you have to answer here, but if you had an extra hour every day, what would you do with it?
