time conscious.


If, before going to bed every night, you will tear a page from the calendar, and remark, “there goes another day of my life, never to return,” you will become time conscious.

Yes, i guess time consciousness is one of the things we don't actually have when we are younger, but as the time goes by and as we get older, we start to understand how every day is precious and unrepetable. And how much time we had wasted.

:) true. but it's also true that these guys (my nephews but most children I guess) are the ones who live life with more intensity. that's why they cry so hard, laugh so loud. everything, every single moment is so important to them... even if they forget it 5 min after :)

I like that thought very much Luisa.
Living life with intensity, I guess we seem to forget that as we grow older.
