time is running out or you are running out of time

time is running out or you are running out of time

We all need time, or at least we all need to know what time it is. At some point in the day, you look at your watch or ask the time to someone. You wait for the right time to have lunch, to catch the bus, to go to sleep and to wake up in the morning. But what if there is no right time? Nature has its own time, we can not control what time it's going to rain, we can not change the sunset hour and we can not guess the next tsunami will happen, so why do we try to do it with our lives?

Time is important, of course, but you will be running out of time if you try to control every little minute of your day. Once again, think about nature - birds don't wait for midnight to go to bed, dogs don't wait for 8 am to wake up and the sun doesn't wait for everyone to come home so the moon can take its place. Time is relative. We created it.
If we created time, why do we never have time for everything we want to do? Even with the most sophisticated technology, global communication and fast information, time is running out. Or are we running out of time?
We live in the fear of not being able to realize our dreams, we live to plan to do this or that, we live to think about the future and to remember the past, where is the time to simply live? If we try to imagine a life where time doesn't exist, we know that it would be chaotic, but if we projected in our mind a life where we live to actually experience instead of planning, time wouldn't run away. 


Plan and project what you want to do, the places you want to go and the experiences you want to have, but don't worry about the when. Keep your dreams in your mind and live every day as if you were a little closer to realizing them. Enjoy today, the past and the future, but really enjoy!
If you think you don't have enough time, do not waste it checking what time it is constantly, just do what you have to do. And if you need that little push, keep this wonderful paragraph, I think it says it all. Is time really running out?

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. an 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.
— Mitch Albom
