Thomas Slatin Quote

  • May 3, 2020

“Minutes of daylight, as the minutes turn into hours, is the parlance of our time. Everytime I look in the mirror, I see myself staring right back at me; a fleeting glimpse of myself going round and round on a carousel cusp of why.” —Thomas Slatin, Belong

    We’ll never know when our time will come so make sure we live life to the fullest. We should always appreciate ourselves and the people around us. We might find ourselves stuck with questions of why, but we can always look at a different perspective and see ‘where’ and ‘how’ can we significantly spend this God-given time.

    Time is gold that’s why we need to make the most of it before we regret what we didn’t do when chances came to us. Great and powerful message.

    The cycle of life I suppose. What is trending now may trend later on. As they say, Life is nothing more than a cycle. That said, it is all up to us how we will take advantage of our time here. Make the best out it. I should say.

    Sometimes I think I’m in a movie and that other people are actually watching me, it seems crazy to me, but I try not to think about it because I can’t find a reason to be.

    The mirror always give us a good account of ourselves. Every minutes of our lives gives us an account of what we have become.

    “Minutes of daylight, as the minutes turn into hours, is the parlance of our time.” Those are some of the most beautiful words I have ever heard.

    That was very deep, I have many whys as well.. in my case they don’t come from the mirror, but from watching me and watching all around myself. Everytime I get more convinced that the idea of me is not really mine and I find out that i’m different that the person that I believe i’m and that I really don’t know me.

    With every passsing minute we edge closer and closer to our end. That’s why we should live in the moment. Carpe diem!
