Does time matter?


Are we waiting for the perfect time to take action towards our dreams? There is no perfect time, it is just a notion which we can never control or explain.  I am still puzzled and try to understand how some can say they have a lifetime of happiness while others spend their entire lives and can never reach that supreme feeling. Some define a blissful moment as true happiness that can only occur once in a lifetime.  After they live a beautiful experience, some describe their day as the ultimate euphoria that can be only lived once. Some are still searching for the perfect time or wait for the right person to embrace true happiness.

I have come to the realization that notion of time is only in our head, only the intensity of our emotions matters even if it is not measurable. Time has meaning if we are living in the moment. If we are trying to hold on negativity, or not enjoying ourselves, we will not reach that level of happiness that we are striving for.

We have to let go of all thoughts and focus only on living the moment. If we are mindful of what we are doing, we will continuously live in contentment and then we will understand that we are in control of our own happiness, because time does not matter, only us and the moment matter.

I am a daughter, a sister, a wife, a mother, and a nurse. Most importantly, I am passionate about life. I always give my best to anything that I decide to do. I believe taking a risk to fulfill your dream can be rewarding.


  1. I couldn’t agree more with you! I’d even say that the way we view time in our society as linear is flawed. I believe that time is cyclical and there is no true division between past present or future other than in our perception. Mindful is the key, let’s experience this mysterious life like curious children!

  2. I need to work on my outlook on things. I feel like I’m always trying to achieve more in a day than possible and leaves me feeling like I’ve failed. Thanks for sharing this. It’s just what I needed to hear.

  3. Love this post! I need to slow down and take everything in as it’s happening. I have two little girls and they are growing so quickly that it’s making me realize just how precious time is!

  4. My husband and I always say that time is such a funny thing. In some ways, it’s just an arbitrary unit of measurement that someone made up to help explain things. But I also agree that if you wait until the time is right, you may never do something. I hear people say all the time they are waiting for the right time to have children, and some of them never do. There isn’t always a right time, you just have to go for it!

  5. Completely agree with you! this was an amazing thought and put across quite well. I always feel that living in the moment and being mindful of our actions always bring out good things in future.

  6. Great post!! I have been trying to really focus on what I am doing. I used to get so stressed and feel like I never had enough time but I am trying to take things one day at a time and look at the bigger picture. wish me luck!!

  7. I definitely could not agree with you more, time is precious. It was not till I got older that I started respecting and looking at time a little differently than I had as a kid. Every minute truly does count, thank you for sharing!

    • Absolutely, Nikki, we each have a different path, but we each should reach out to others and help them to reach their final destination.

  8. I agree with this! Time is really just a human concept. It allows us to live our busy lives and stay scheduled. It would be nice not to have to think about time.
