Squeezing the marrow out of life (well, sucking it, actually) is an idea I was pondering the other day. Life happens. It passes so quickly… although for some, I guess, they’d believe it passes slowly. My viewpoint is different.
So, my question: how to squeeze everything out of life that I could possibly want to?
I recall once reading an interview with Susan Sarandon, who said, “The trick to life is to be awake in it.”
This is the @KRidwyn version of that same idea: ‘You have five minutes. How will you fill them?’
Live life in five minute intervals. What will I do in the next five minutes? If I only have five minutes left to live, how will I spend my time?
Most people, I guess, would *not* say ‘just waiting around’. No – the short time frame forces us to consider options. ‘Many’ get narrowed to ‘several’, depending on location, probably, and available resources. These ‘several’ are then discriminated between, depending on… hmmm. Likeability?
Because I’m thinking, that that’s what it all boils down to.
What do I *like* doing?
Hugging my kids, my husband. Writing? Reading?
And that, dear Reader, is time up!
Have a great week!
PS Five minute intervals. What will you fill them with?
