Sands Of Time

Posted on Updated on

Sometimes we watch the sands of time trickle down the hourglass of our lives. Twenty four hours are not enough anymore as we try to fit in everything that we want to do; work, play, spend quality time with our friends and families or simply drink tea on the veranda as we watch the shifting colors of the sky during sunset.

Time is an evasive prey. The harder we try to capture it, the faster it runs away from us, but the thing with time is that it only moves forward, and never moves backwards. Every heart beat, every breath, every clock hand’s tick tock, sends us a message….

The same message…

Time is running and we’re all headed in the same direction.

Hold the hand of a dear one, and tell them you love them.

Smile at a person who’s done you good and tell them thank you.

Call an estranged family member or friend and check up on them, for you never know…

Because if you don’t do it now, you might never do.
