Well today is my birthday. I turn 30. Birthdays do not do much for my emotional state one way or the other. But of course it does make you think a little. In one sense I feel like the first 30 years has flown by and yet in another sense there are so many memories, mistakes, successes, joys, hurts and so on that it seems like 30 would never get here. I guess time ticks the same way no matter how we feel about it or what we do with it. I am so grateful to my God, my family and my friends for what the first 30 years of my life has looked like. There are not enough words to express how fortunate my journey has been. Time is a funny thing. You can’t by it. You can’t make it. You can’t get it back. Bottom line in regards to time – we must redeem it. We must live like each second matters and is a second we can not get back. We must number our days so that we maximize them. So that e enjoy life fully. In order that love others completely. So that we can harness all of our potential. One moment at a time, where we drink it in and appreciate it. I wish I lived this way and thought this way more often. I wish I could translate these thoughts on time into day to day and into my calendar. Here is to translating these thoughts into our lives.
