I was running late,
I was running wild,
In my savage mind
I was out of time.
Since it is December and this year is almost over – a new one is about to begin, it turned out(it`s not a surprise) that Time matters.
Time is precious. Well, we all know that. And the funny thing is that we only realize its value when it is passed. I believe a lot of people have already comprehended how Time affects their lives, especially when they are stuck in what I call “Out of time mode”!
Out of time is actually the lack of chance, possibility or courage to do, say or achieve something in a specific time frame!
“Out of time” is often considered as something bad. Mostly because it sounds like not fitting in what is considered to be ”time”. It`s depressing to know that you`ve missed a chance, isn`t it?
But let me tell you that. “Out of time” could be a good thing. Whenever we missed a chance or we lack courage to do something and the moment passed, this automatically triggers the “warrior” within. Because somehow we always know when the moment is gone and we were nothing but a silent participant of what was happening.
Being “out of time” is like a red flag for all the things that are important in life. If we always fit into the “time” definition, we lose perception of time. “Out of time” awakens us, makes us more observing, more grateful, teaches us lessons.
Have you ever think how much comfort brings “time” in our lives – “I have time to do that”. , “I have time, I will say that later”., “I will achieve my goals later”. Here is the trick. When we talk about time and when we think about how much time we have, we often postpone things – for a later stage, for (hopefully) a better moment. Time looks indefinite. But it is not. Time is a moment! A very quite one! Comforted by the believe that time is indefinite, we remain deaf and blind for this quite moment.
You`ve heard about how miracles happen out of our comfort zone. Sure it does. Time is the comfort zone. Knowing that you have time – that will comfort you, will make you lazy. Out of time is where miracles happen. Out of time keeps you awake! It is a zone where we live consistently, with eyes wide open and no postponing.
And because at the end of the year we think more often about the things we haven’t done, say or achieve so far, I wish you more courage, self-believe and love to do the important things “on time” the following year!
