Tick, tick, tick….

Tick.. Tick.. Tick
Seconds are constantly passing. Seconds you cannot get back. They may seem like only seconds. Nothing too special to pass up. But seconds are our whole life.
Seconds turn into minutes, minutes to hours, hours to days, days to months, months to years, and then
your life is over.
Tick.. Tick.. Tick
Time is passing and it doesn’t stop for anyone. The world around us is constantly moving, constantly changing, and constantly pleading for our time.
We ‘allow’ our time to be taken from us. but how often do we truly ‘give’ our time away?
We let day after day pass so nonchalantly. “It’s just another day” …but what if it’s actually your last day?
Tick.. Tick.. Tick
I feel like the last couple years of my life have been a complete blur. I have a sting of regret over that time. Like maybe I spent too much of my time caught up in my own world instead of giving my time to those who were more than deserving.
Here I am about to graduate High School. My little siblings are not so little anymore. My sister wears makeup now. My little brother doesn’t run around in super hero suits. My older brother is getting married. Time slips away so very, very quickly, spend it wisely.
I want to remember my life as time spent that mattered. 
Time that mattered to me, to others, to my Jesus.
Don’t you want to look back one day and be proud of the life you lived? Instead of feeling guilt and regret because you spent too much time on things you only thought mattered.
Time is fleeting and seconds are precious. Use them wisely. Live a life that matters. Give your time away, but don’t waste it. Love others, enjoy your time with them. Invest in the lives of others. Smile more.
Simply enjoy life. Because there is not enough time to not.
“..if your life flashed before you, 
what would you wish you would’ve done?
Gotta start looking at the hands of the time you’ve been given here
this is all we got then we gotta start thinking it.
Every second counts on a clock that’s ticking
gotta live like we’re dying.”
The clock is ticking and you have a life to live and people to love on. Go do it.
