Looking back on life, there are many moments I wish I could have accelerated through and others I long to revisit, but this time at a snails pace. Today, I try to leverage my life lessons to optimize the remaining grains of sand left in my hourglass.  Best case scenario, I have utilized around three-fourths of my allotment. Worst case, well, there is no value in trying to guess the date of my fate. The permutations are endless, sobering and futile. And besides investing in that process uses more of the exact thing you are trying to manage, precious unknown time. 

The huge variable we all face is not knowing the exact time of our life event horizon. So we place our best bets on where, how and with whom our time is allocated. Knowing that proposition is flawed.  Rear view objects by design dissipate with time and distance. Look ahead with positivity at the possibilities. Learn from mistakes, learn to forgive yourself, learn from others and learn to live life to the fullest.

Time waits for no one. Its constant vibrations slowly sifts away precious moments of your life like grains of sand until there is nothing left.
