Time is of essence. No amount of money can buy time.

A recent conversation with a  friend of mine made me realise, time is one thing that we regret the most. Every time we feel regretful, it is always “being in the wrong place at the wrong time” or “if only I could rewind time”.

After that conversation, I thought to myself, why is it that we always look at the bad side of things? Why do we always throw ourselves a self-pitying party, crying over lost time? Why can’t we all just focus on the memories that we gained from all that we’ve gone through? Somehow, we subconsciously do things our minds don’t agree with because we are swayed right at the decisive moment. That is the start of the “if only” midnight thoughts and the I-just-want-to-stay-in-bed-and-cry-my-eyes-out days.

There is one thing I know for sure. Time flies. It never stops.

We are always going to have things we are going to regret but how we handle the situation determines how we pick ourselves up from it. It is either you regret it so much that you will always be stuck under the control of it and continue to lose time or you smile and think of the good that you got out from it, no matter how much you might still regret. Which one do you choose?

To all out there who are are filled with many regrets because of time, learn from it and forgive yourself. It’s time for you to get back up on your own two feet and know that you are not alone. You will always have people around you who would help you through those dark days and will be walk you through to the light at the end of the tunnel.

Food for thought overload. Maybe it was because that conversation happened after midnight (which explains the sappy sentiments) or maybe I’m just having a melancholy night. But my brain has definitely got its nutritions for the week.
