Ask a friend casually what he or she is doing. The answer that you will often get is: “Just passing time” or “killing time”. Isn’t it strange? What they unknowingly say in a casual tone has a deep meaning. In fact, whenever I hear such an answer, I feel alarmed. We will live up to only a certain age. With such limited time in our hands, how can there be time to “pass” or “kill”?
Think about it. What happened yesterday? Last week? Last month? Or last year? How soon did the time pass by? Realize that it is this moment that will create your days, your weeks, your months, your years and your life. If you want to get hold of your life, go ahead and grab the moment. As they say in Latin ‘carpe diem’ that literally means seize the day.
