I DON’T THINK SO!!!
This is the story of a man who was given a potion that gives immortality and he drank it!!!
Now, 180 years have passed and the man figured out that he cursed himself by drinking the potion.
His wife, all his friends and lovers and relatives had grown old and died, leaving him alone, bored and weary.
Now he longed for the grave!
With no death in his future he lacked drive and ambition and curiosity because he had forever to live!!!
What do we glean from this story?
We know everybody dies.
Knowing this is liberating because it teaches us to make good use of our time and live as fully as we can.
No matter how much life we have it never is enough.
People are always hoping for more time.
If we had endless time, the concept of living fully and making full use of your time would be meaningless.
Endless life would be a pointless burden!
We are RESPONSIBLE for how we use our time.
Every day we are given is precious and the older we get the more we realise this.
We should stop thinking “if only I had more time”, and think instead, “if only I made better use of the time I’ve got.”
SEIZE THE DAY!!!
