If you could slow down an action that usually zooms by, or speed up an event that normally drags on, which would you choose, and why?” – Daily Prompt

Time is such a conflicted thing. For one, it doesn’t really exist. Time is but a mere system that the human race created in order to establish a sense of order and yet these series of numbers rule our lives in more than one way. It also seems to slow down when you wish it wouldn’t, and speed up when you want to remain in a moment forever. It refuses to cooperate and instead dictates how many of us live our lives.

There is no reasoning with time alas, if there was, I would slow down the moments I cherish: the moments spent with loved ones, the moments spent creating something, the moments I wish I could live in. Time is perhaps the only thing in life one might wish to buy but cannot. We beckon at it’s every command and only a selected few have learned how to successfully manipulate and use time effectively. My desire is to become one of those people and leave procrastination behind, instead making the most of the time we have.

I’m yet to decide whether or not a world without time would be too chaotic and unorganized or whether or not it would be a lot less stressful. I’d ponder further but, ironically, I’m running out of time…

This guy might be a little *too* obsessed with the time

  1. If you stop procrastination altogether, you’ll forget how to have fun. You will forget how to make up excuses for a little slack in order to not have to do whatever you need to do. We are so pressured into being time effective and productive non stop that in the end when we are finished with all the work we forget how to relax, how to live without stress. We forget what we enjoyed doing. I feel that procrastination is a really good remedy in someone’s life to keep their sane self in check, as with continuous productivity we would surely go insane as we have so little time yet so much to do all the time.
