Today is Remembrance Day and we celebrate those that gave their lives so we can enjoy the freedom we have in ours. They fought for something they believed in and something greater than themselves. Next time you want to ‘kill time’, remember those who gave up their time so you have the choice to decide what to do with yours.
I asked someone yesterday what they were doing and they responded with “I’m killing time”. I then asked them why they wanted to do that and their response was that they were bored. But why, would someone want to kill time? Time is a limited resource and our time here on earth is short, why waste it?
Ask someone who’s sick what they would give for more time. Talk to a couple who’s spending their last day together for a while. Or simply think about those days when your alarm goes off too early and you wish you had more time in bed.
When we have extra time, we want to kill it. Instead, here are some ways to fill your time so you enjoy every precious moment of it.
Tips on Enjoying Your Time
However you choose to spend your time, remember that time is a gift, use it wisely.
“Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.”
