I wrote this for a friend who said, “I think God making the clock run too fast for me.”

When I think of time, a Thai song came to mind, Puen tee lek lek (A Little Space) by BOY Trai, part of the song said, being an adult is not easy, not familiar of what I have to do, and I get so discouraged. I don’t have time left, to listen, to think of someone because I’m an adult now, what should I do? When the clock of my life spins a lot faster than the time in my heart, that I’ve lost a part of me, that little boy inside, where did he go? Why is he no longer with me today? Can I still have that little space, so I can be a kid again…at the edge of the sky, where dreams and reality meet, that little boy and I, holding hands and walking side by side.  You can watch the video in youtube: BOY Trai – Puen tee lek lek


Then I thought of a quote, “For disappearing acts, it’s hard to beat what happens to the eight hours supposedly left after eight of sleep and eight of work.” Doug Larson

I often wonder about the 24 hours that we all have, Is it really true that we all have 24 hours per day. Why is it certain individuals have so much time to do things, for instance Darly, she accomplishes so much in a day’s work, there might be a secrete to her time management. She once made a comment on my blog that, “If only we don’t need to sleep, then we might have enough time to do all that we want to do. Our brain can go on and on. It’s our body that needs to rest, what a pity.” Sleeping might be the answer to our time crisis.

I remember when I was little, I’d stay up very late just to read, this used to upset my mom because she thought it was a waste of my time. Time. I don’t know if it was a bad habit, but I’m still about the same, either staying up late to read and write, or get up extra early in the morning, might be because it’s very quiet at night and I can think better. I discovered that I don’t need that much sleep, average of about 4 hours is good enough for me. Does that mean that I’ve more time than others? I think you can say that, to me sleeping is a waste of time, there’s so much that I can accomplish at night while others are sleeping.

Most people would sleep on an average of 8 hours because they need their beauty sleep. I don’t get that much, does that mean I look old, on the contrary, I actually look younger than my age, might be because I’m taking vitamins for my brain, while others are sleeping, getting their beauty sleep, I’m up reading and I discover that it’s the best vitamin for my brain, it’s like giving water to a plant. One of my co-workers told me that I’ll be young forever because I’m thinking all the time and also writing silly stuff, which I thought was not very nice of her to say, I take my writing seriously.

Then I thought of the 24 hours that we all have, which I feel that it’s not true. In reality, we don’t have the same amount of time, just like some that are sick and require to sleep a lot more, might not have time to watch TV, might not have time to socialize with friends, which sleeping robes much of their time and you can’t say that they have the same amount of time as me.

Another quote came to mind, “Day, n. A period of twenty-four hours, mostly misspent.” Ambrose Bierce, this I find true. I don’t watch that much TV, or Thai Lakorn anymore, in the past I watched too much and feel that those TV programs just feed into my brain, there’s not much interaction IMO, and in the past, I seemed to waste a lot of time doing this and had nothing to show for. So I spend less time watching TV, and spending more time doing things that I enjoy doing. I spend a lot of my time reading, listening to music, reading current events on the Internet, reading blogs, and writing blogs, I’m taking vitamins for my brain, which to me I’m spending my time wisely because it’s something that I enjoy doing. As for you, your recipe might be different; time is spent wisely when you’re doing something that you enjoy.

For some, there might be too much time that they don’t know what to do with, made me think of this quote, “Men talk of killing time, while time quietly kills them.” Dion Boucicault. Time seems to travel a lot slower when you’re sad but a lot faster when you’re happy, just as time flies when you’re having much fun.

How you spend your time is up to you, but most importantly, you need to ask yourself, Are you spending enough time doing things that you love?
