Your time is a gift that you get to choose the recipients of. Giving someone the gift of your time is the most valuable gift you can give for this very reason – money you spend on someone can be gotten back, but the time you spend with them cannot.

When you start realizing that your supply is not endless, it is much easier to raise your standards when deciding who you want to spend your valuable hours with. The next time you feel like someone isn’t treating you the way you deserve or a situation isn’t helping you grow or progress in life, remember this:

If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of.

Life can easily become frantic, and crazy, and a little unpredictable – but we owe it to ourselves to slow it down every now and then and just enjoy it. To enjoy each other, to enjoy what we have worked so hard to achieve. To pause in the middle of chasing after the elusive happiness we all crave, and just…be happy.

We have to pause every now and then, take a look at the time that we do have, and ask ourselves one simple question…

The question is – how are you going to use it?
