In a second

According to one encyclopedia, a 'second' is defined as the

"duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium-133 atom".

Hmmmm doesn't mean a lot to many of us I am sure LOL especially when you think, regardless of it's length, just how quickly things can change in a second ~ us, situations, life, even the world can change in a second. 

Good and bad things happen in an instant, things can change for the better or a life can be stilled. When you see it in this way, it certainly makes you think. 

It shows us how very precious time is, and how we should do all that we can, to make the most of every precious second that we may have, doing the things that we want to, with the people that we want to do it with.  And that ultimately, we can spend so much wasted time doing things that we neither want to do, or don't enjoy doing.  That when we put things off, we waste that time, time that we simply cannot have again.

When time is so precious, we should be spending it doing the things that we want to, the things that we love to do, and spending it with people that we want to spend it with.  And if there are reasons which are preventing this to happen, to make positive decisions and positive changes so we can do these things, so that we are doing what we want, how we want, but more so, with those we wish to do it with.

Those seconds are precious.  Time is precious and it is also far too short to waste. 

Why should we waste any more of it?  

It is within our hands to take positive steps to not do so, to do things which makes the most of every minute . . .every second. . . and only we can make that happen.
