Is time really money?

Nov. 25: What do you think we could all do better with if we looked at it with a child’s eyes?

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you are all having a good week, whether you celebrated Thanksgiving or not. I just got back home from Black Friday shopping with my sister and was able to get quite a few cool things; things not only for myself but for some of my family members as well.


People always seem to say “Time is money.” When we’re children we really have no concept of time. We are awake when it’s light and asleep when it’s dark. We have no idea how much time has passed when we are playing, sleeping, watching TV, spending time with family.

Now that we’re older our lives are controlled by time. We wake up at 6, are at work from 9-5, eat dinner at 7, go to bed at 10 and repeat. Our lives are constant schedules and we find comfort in having a schedule because we know where and when we have to do things. We base everything off of time and schedules.

Why can’t we look at our day with a child’s eyes? Why can’t we live without the constant need for schedules and worries about being late. Why must we be consumed by schedules and eyes glued to clocks all day in anticipation for the beginning and end of events. Our lives revolve around scanning watches and writing in planners and as much as I wish they didn’t, I  guess time really is money.
