Imagine an orb that varies in size for every individual. We don't know how big it is as it cannot be seen, but we do know that from our beginning it starts slowly rotating and that as it turns it sheds particles from the surface.
What we do with those particles has a bearing on our lives. For example, we may just ignore them or we may do something constructive with them, work with them, learn from them, have fun with them or share them with friends or family. But we use them in some way.
Sometimes the particles that come away are very sharp and we must be careful how we handle them as they could cause us harm physically or emotionally.
Some contain pain and grief, but even these if handled and managed the right way can be stored away safely in our head and heart as memories.
As the orb of time turns we gain experience and grow used to expecting the unexpected.
The thing to remember is that time waits for no one, and it certainly doesn't stand still.
When I was a child, twelve months was like an eternity. Christmas and school holidays seemed an age away. Time seemed to move very slowly then, but as I grew older there was so much happening and time seemed to fly; but of course we know that this isn't the case. But we do know that with each rotation of time that orb gets smaller until it has worn away to nothing and it has shed its last particle.
That is when our time is up, or our time has run out. It is time to go, so don't waste time. Do something before it passes by as one day it will all be gone.
Thank you for sharing the time to listen. I hope I haven't wasted a particle of your time.
