Time and Life MAG
One day you wake up, get ready and go to school. Before you know it, the day passes. Then a week, a month, a year, a decade, and soon, your lifetime. But what did you do with all that time? Or, more importantly, what didn’t you do with all that time? Every life must be used wisely and not thrown away.
One day my teacher said, “Life is a game of chess, and the other player is Time.” From that moment, I knew I had to enjoy my life. Do not waste time, because you know what? Time will not come back. Time will not reverse. You cannot buy it. It is one of those things in life that you must really, really cherish. Time will not give you second chances. You must create those second chances. You must open those doors and find those opportunities.
You change the world every day when you use time, so never say an experience wasn’t worth it. It all matters. Either you helped someone with their homework or you just jumped someone into your gang. You’ve changed the world by changing a person’s life.
When you see an opportunity, take it. You might not get it back. Never let an opportunity pass. And if it is too hard, remember that in the middle of every difficulty lies an opportunity.
Remember, you don’t get to choose how you’re going to die. Or when. You can only decide how you’re going to live. Now. You only have one life. If you waste it in jail, then you will live very miserably. Study as if you were going to live forever, live as if you were going to die tomorrow. Don’t just think of the present, but also think of your future. Your future is yet another chapter in your life and another way to live it.
Love is great to experience. Love doesn’t make the world go ’round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile. Without love, humans would have no reason to live. Love makes you do crazy, unimaginable things. It drives some people insane. Be careful, for love can be a real traitor. If you do find that special someone, hold onto him/her forever and don’t let go.
Every single living thing has a purpose in life. For some, it is to make the world a better place. For others, it is to destroy it. “The purpose of life is a life of purpose,” as Robert Byme so aptly put it. Every single person was put in this world for a purpose. Many people call this destiny. Without destiny, there would be no life.
Learn to use time wisely, take opportunities, and enjoy life. We can discover the meaning of life in three different ways: (1) by doing a deed; (2) by experiencing a value; and (3) by suffering. Lives, like money, are spent. So, what are you buying with yours?

Only as deep as deep as i look can I see
Only as much as I dream can I be..!! *_*
