Try To Imagine A Life Without Timekeeping

try to imagine

Try to imagine a life without timekeeping.
You probably can’t. You know the month, the year, the day of the week. There is a clock on your wall or the dashboard of your car. You have a schedule, a calendar, a time for dinner or a movie. Yet all around you, timekeeping is ignored. Birds are not late. A dog does not check its watch. Deer do not fret over passing birthdays. Man alone measures time. Man alone chimes the hour. And, because of this, man alone suffers a paralyzing fear that no other creature endures. A fear of time running out.

Let People Lose You

Let people lose you. Let people be wrong about you. Learn to leave well enough alone.Often, the greatest peace is not found in correcting others. It’s found in correcting yourself, accepting the lessons, and knowing when to walk away.
