Gave up wine for thirty days. Heading to the wine shop asap rocky to purchase an organic Pinot noir. In the meantime I’ll be sipping this tequila and coke. Time cannot be retrieved so I won’t spend a second moping when so many haven’t and won’t wake up. It’s Saturday adapt baby. How are you spending time? Photo: Nostalgia Puff
“…if she finds it strange, to be paid for her hours at work- to exchange, in other word, blocks of her extremely limited time on this earth for the human invention known as money. Time consists of physics, money is just a social construct.”

Super hard to believe sometimes, but it’s true. Everything happens for a reason, the universe crafted these experiences specifically for you. Yup, you’re that damn special fingerprint. Pay attention, there are patterns and lessons unfolding every second. Time waits nor rushes for man, but it will give you what you need, not want, when it’s right. Looking back can you remember instances where the timing made sense in retrospect? If not try now, bet you can find aplenty. Photo: Spiritual Awakening 1
And so Time goes on as it should and events that were once fated to happen are left instead to chance, and Chance never falls in love with anything for long.

Leave anything that doesn’t serve your purpose behind, in the last decade. Is someone taking the best years of your life? This extends to places and things as well. Time is the most valuable currency, when it is gone you won’t get it back. Spend it wisely. Photo: Hell Was Fun

“Which is more important, time or money?”
Stuffing our faces with a breakfast of fried chicken, eggs and some unidentifiable red gunk, Lee confided in me. Her new boo was co-owner of a sustainable cooperative farm, which she’d gained a newfound interest in. But being a Park Avenue bartender sponsored a very cushy lifestyle, coupled with a 401k, a seemingly unreal healthcare package and paid vacation (allotted time off increasing yearly). To leave would dent her finances significantly.
“Time,” I answer.
“You can always make money, but you can never get your time back.“
“Wow, that was deep. How is it that you say the wisest shit, but you’re so ratchet?” Now that, I didn’t have an answer for. Someone once told me I’d been here before. This wasn’t my first life. Agreed. Even in high school people were annoyed I could see past tomorrow; dismissing their current melodrama as infinitesimal. Ahead of the curve, the bigger picture was always in view.
Later that week she gave notice, absconing a seven year stint. When she came to visit happiness beamed from her, like rays of sunlight it was blinding. She found her purpose.
Now I am asking you where do you place the most value, time or money? How much merriment does it bring you?
Don’t let them fool you. Money comes and goes.
Time just goes.
How you utilize it is important. It correlates directly with your happiness, the only currencies that truly matter.
