It’s about time…enjoying it

As a family we recently watched the film “About time” directed by Richard Curtis.  The film is very gentle and perfect family viewing, however there is such a powerful message underpinning the light hearted love story.

There is a key moment in the film where the father asks the son to relive a day and really focus on everything.  Really think “about time” that you are in at that very moment.  We often get through a day at the office without focusing on the time we had.

This week focus on every moment of time and enjoy it:-

  • Look up at buildings
  • Have lunch not at your desk
  • Walk everywhere you can (even in the rain)
  • Smile at the person selling you coffee and chat to them
  • Smile at strangers
  • Listen at another level to your closest
  • Have fun with some administrative tasks

Finally I am not sure where this passage came from, very powerful and it is all “about time”…

The clock is running – Make the most of each day…………

To realise the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed an exam

To realise the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave birth to a premature baby

To realise the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper

To realise the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet

To realise the value of ONE MINUTE ask the person who missed the train

To realise the value of ONE SECOND, ask the person who just avoided an accident

To realise the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask the person who won the silver medal
