And those can be taken in a blink, too. So looking back at the good memories, lessons, is good to do as often as we can.

Memories are great! Making new ones may soothe that anxiety over your time.

If you suffer from time anxiety, I'd encourage you to stop and ask yourself if you aren't really more anxious about what your life means. About what you're doing with it. And if it turns out you're worried that what you're doing isn't meaningful enough, then figure out what is meaningful enough and start doing that. Or if the contribution you've decided to spend your life making already does feel like the most meaningful contribution you could make and you're anxious because you're not always spending your time making it, remind yourself, that you don't need to focus every minute of your life on value creation for value creation to have been what your life was all about.

This is not to minimize the concerns expressed in this post. Quite the contrary. I recognize the concerns over time. Just saying we have control over how we spend our time, how to make the best of our time. Paying attention to that can help reduce the anxiety.

Excellent post! Reading the other answers pretty much sums it up for me also. Nothing we can do about time but try to enjoy the time we have in this life.

This is all so true. If people would stop to consider just how short life is even if you live to be a very old age. It's not even a speck in on the eternal passage of time. And really only amounts mere seconds metaphorically speaking. Perhaps if we dwelled a little more on that fact rather than what our fellow man has maybe there might be a lot more peace and good will in the world.

Yes, all the comments are providing significant information.

But what is time? Time cannot be stopped; it is like the running water of a river.

It is, generally, considered as the "fourth dimension" and reminds also of the history of how the time was and is measured:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Time
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H...eeping_devices

https://books.google.ch/books?i...me&f=false

Time is precious for everybody, but it is valued very differently, depending on the classes, skills, age, status, education, interests, aims, beliefs, etc.

Time is on your side when your a kid, then it slips away as you get older controlling you until the end of time.

Talking of songs, here's a translation of a great song, a poem (1965), but less known on your side:

and the song for those who love French poetry, yes, also for you, Serenity:

First - THANK YOU for your service. As for the UN, it lost it's 'mission' decades ago. I remember collecting for UNICEF during this time of the year in the 50s --- before UNICEF was corrupted. Today the organization is nothing more than a 'legalized' Mafia organization. When they 'elect' terrorists, murderers, etc. to preside over their various 'enterprises' you know they have a problem. Sadly they expect the US to provide the majority of the $$$ and the troops, and up until now, we've done so. Time to get them OUT of the US and out of our pocketbook! (Isn't our 'involvement' in Niger part of a UN action?)

Jan, Jim Croce seems to have a bit in common with some of our past and more recent poets and singers on our side.

This one has a part in English (it is about L.A. and San Francisco and, partly, speaking of time by thinking about far away and far ago:
Nicolas Peyrac - So far away from L.A.

Many of the things you can achieve in life, like money and power, pass away when you die. So what riches can you take into eternity?

Souls are eternal, but objects are temporary. So as I see it, there are 2 treasures in the grand scheme of things: heaven and loved ones. To wind up in heaven, surrounded by the people you love is the highest form of success. So worldly success is nice, but to paraphrase Jesus, love God and love other people, because that's the most important thing in life.

Time is such a precious thing. I got a reminder in that about a month ago when my oldest brother told me he has cancer. I set around thinking about all the time my siblings and I have missed over the last five years as we sat around either fighting or ignoring each other because we were to busy finger pointing when my mama passed away as to whose fault it was.

We missed birthdays, special moments, good laughs, and a handful of tears. While we can't get back the time we lost we can enjoy the time we have together right now.
