Every Hour Is Precious

A few days ago for daylight savings I had to put all the clocks in my home forward one hour, something we’ve all been doing for years.  But It wasn’t until that day that I realized how precious the hour I just went forward in time was.

I was sitting at my computer, checked the time and it was 7:49 pm.  Almost eight, but if we didn’t go forward an hour it would only be 6:49 pm.  And at 6:49 I usually get ready to watch a movie, or go out to run some errands.  Yet here I was at 7:49, almost time to get into my cozy bed and fall asleep.

Time is something I wish I could slow down at certain points of my life, I’m sure it is for all of us.  But how come there is only 24 hours in a day? Not 25? Or 30?  It would be better if it was 30, then I could spend more time doing things I wanted to do.

And that get’s us to the main point: every hour is precious to us.  We can do so much in a mere hour, do a full workout, get a lot better at something, watch a few episodes of your favorite show.  Or we can learn another section out of a unit at school, or complete another task you had to at work.

Every hour we live through should be something to be grateful for and something to be proud of.  We have a lot of hours in our life’s, and it’s important we don’t waste those hours.  We spend a lot of times on our phones, computers, and just waiting for something to happen.


What are you waiting for?  Get out there! Have some fun!  Whatever you’re looking for won’t come to you, you need to find it.  And you have the time, so do it.  Sure, it may not be as much time as we’d like, but there had to be a boundary somewhere.

Something that you can really do is write out a schedule;  Make a chart of what you do with every 24 hours of your day.  You’ll find that for quite a few you’re doing nothing, not even going on your phone, just nothing.

So take those hours, and do something that will make you a better person.  Every hour is precious to us, we live a short life, so use them.
