Have you ever felt this: your life slowly ticking away, minute by minute? It’s in the moments like this that you fully realize how truly unique your life is. All of a sudden it dawns on you that there has never lived nor ever will live anyone just like you. You understand that your life is just a momentary flame between the billions of years that preceded it and countless billions that would follow it. And you know, know with all your heart, that every moment of your life is also truly, unequivocally unique.
But as this flame of life flickers in the wind, you can’t get rid of an uneasy feeling that you are just not using it right. That you are spending these precious finite moments on things that simply don’t matter. And you want to live your life differently, live it knowing that every moment is spent with some meaning and not just wasted. You already can see this new, meaningful, purposeful, majestic life in front of you. But then… then the feeling is gone and you return to your regular life, where moments are cheap, as if they were infinite. What is it about life that we always strive to understand but never quite grasp?
