  • Feb 4 2013: Realize that time doesn't exist,
    but moments do.
    There are many more moments of now that exist than there is of time for any one individual.
    We all change and move on, so if you live to be 70, you get 25,550 days, with perhaps 8-12 extra days for leap years.

    Spend it wisely. Use it up.
    Use it all.
    Very few things in life are actually important.
    Separate what is for you. They will change.
