Sometimes it takes a human being a life time to realize that worldly possessions, wealth and prestige are not as important as they had once thought. Instead time and how one spends time is surely the most important thing in your life.
If you think about all other things come and go or change but time will always be there and the time you spend with your family and friends should be much more valuable than the things other spend an entire lifetime seeking.
Here is an excellent quote about time:
Time is the coin of your life. It is the only coin you have, and only you can determine how it will be spent. Be careful lest you let other people spend it for you. ~Carl Sandburg
So I ask how do you spend your time? Are you one who spends every waking minute trying to learn? Do you spend most of your time trying to generate wealth and get possessions? Are you the kind of person who spends as much time as possible with your loved ones?
