Time: The Currency of Life

TIME: The Currency of Life

By Mairead Moriarty, Holistic Wellbeing Coach

The most valuable commodity you have right now is Time. It’s a finite gift that you are given at birth. You cannot manufacture it, but you can decide how to spend it.

Time has some unique properties:

  1. TIME seems to drag when you are young, stuck in a queue, working in a career that doesn’t fulfil you, or when you are in the wrong relationship …

  2. TIME seems to speed up when you are working on a passion project, on holiday, celebrating with those you love or growing older …

  3. TIME increases in value when you or a loved one is given a difficult medical diagnosis …

  4. TIME seems to be a desolate and limitless wasteland when you are lonely or depressed …

As 2023 draws closer, imagine TIME is like a large deposit in your life’s bank account. If you’re wondering how to spend it, then look at the top five death-bed regrets recorded by nurses in palliative care:

  1. I wish I’d dared to be true to myself and not lived a life to please others.

  2. I wish I’d expressed my feelings more.

  3. I wish I’d spent more quality time with my family and friends.

  4. I wish I’d allowed myself to have more fun.

  5. I wish I had looked after my health.

Create your best life in 2023: Spend your TIME wisely.
