Time is Intangible

By Alexa Lezak – 


This past week, my family and I celebrated my dad’s 63rd birthday. We spent the weekend spending time together at home, which is something that we don’t get to do too often these days, at least not with all of us together. Everyone in our family is extremely busy, whether it’s work, travel, moving, etc., so a weekend all together at home was special and something I needed. We spent the few days we had together hanging by the pool and reminiscing on the endless number of memories we’ve made over the years. My heart couldn’t have been happier.


While making the 2-hour drive back to Montgomery on Monday and reflecting on our weekend, I started thinking about time and how precious it is. I’ve had several life-changing experiences that have made this very clear over the past 25 years, but after the wonderful weekend spent at home with the people I love, I was trying to figure out why I was feeling so nostalgic. I think the reason is because, as I’ve gotten older (and have watched my parents grow older), I’ve realized that you can’t get time back. Time is intangible and once it’s gone, it’s gone. I’m sure most of you are thinking, “Well duh!”, but then why do we so often take it for granted?


Many of us get so wrapped up in our own little world of to-do lists, work, politics, material possessions, etc. and make those the most important things in our lives. Not to say some of these things are not important… but are they the MOST important? To me, the answer is no. And while thinking about this past weekend, I realized just that. What’s most important, at least to me, is time spent with the people I love, my relationship with God, family and friends, my health, and my happiness. I realized that I want to be more intentional of how I use my time and truly appreciate moments instead of taking them for granted. I encourage you to do the same. Figure out what it is in life you cherish most and spend time doing it. While you’re at it, stop, pause, and take it all in. I can confidently say, you will not regret it!
