Learn to value time

June 17, 2024

Time is the common denominator in our lives, in our stories and our futures.

Can you give me a little of your time?

Time is forging and molding according to what we live. Time gives us the right in some things, but in others it takes away from us. Time surprises us and makes us value it when we look back. All those things that we have done in the past, that in moments before they happened we would not have imagined. Therefore, it is a very precious commodity. Time is not bought, exchanged or sold.

Value those people who dedicate time to you, or rather, who dedicate time to you. Be that way, without stopping to measure; duration, frequency or quality. That they give you time, means that you also accept it, and therefore you accept to receive it .

We are so immersed in immediate or short-term objectives that we do not stop paying attention to the time that exists between starting and achieving those objectives. For example, how many of us go to work in a hurry, distracting ourselves with our cell phones until we get to our subway stop or occupying our ears to quickly evade the reality of daily life and reach the destination places?

Learn to value the present time

I invite you to make some changes that you can make in your day to day and thus assess the time in a different way:


Capture all that information that is around us, whether streets, landscapes, people, gestures ... All that information is inputs for our brain. You can learn a lot about what people need, how they feel or what they can get transmit the looks .


Give more importance to how or what we feel at each moment. Either an accelerated breathing, a tense shoulder or a roar in the belly. Try to think what it is that can make us feel this way and give some answer to that need (breathe deeply, make a rotating movement of the shoulders, eat something ...).


Although we have better days than others, others do not deserve to transmit these bad vibrations. Therefore, be grateful and try to be nice to others as you would like them to be with you. Not only for them, but for how you will feel after doing it. Be polite and smile more and you will see that they smile more than you thought, if not, do not worry, since your vibrations and your attitude will be better as well.

Then, dedicate time to everything that makes you happy , done or just calm and at ease with yourself. All those activities that make you enjoy that time that you dedicate to them, to those, that you do not perceive the time and in which you would spend hours and days looking like minutes.

The importance of connecting with the people around us

Dedicate time to those people who make you lose track of time, talking about everything and talking about nothing. Those that tend to be perennial in time no matter how often you see them. To those others that are punctual, but intense. That give you strength, desire, illusions and experiences. All of them form your path, your way of life. Thank them all, I repeat, all those who have passed through your life because in one way or another they have shaped you today to be who you are. Here we have the fantastic, exciting and mysterious crossroad .

You never know what the new road junctions are to come, they will just come . How long they will be or what their role will be. You will not know it until, over time, you look back and understand what you have taken from that crossing on the road and in time.
