Weekly Photo Challenge: Time

Rock Point Provincial Park & Lake Erie, Ontario. July 2012

This is literally a picture of a wristwatch.  I couldn’t find anything else in my past albums of a clock or clock tower thus far to represent time and this ended up being one that resonated with me.  This photo was taken back in July of 2012.  That’s four years ago!  This was during the last activity of the summer camping trip that we had; an scavenger hunt during the Mon Sheong Camp Trip organized by the Mon Sheong Youth Group.  I remember that weekend being a massively hot one and most of us weren’t able to do much of the activities on the first day because it was just so sweltering hot.  Looking back, you don’t remember much of the negatives though and just really feel fond of the past memories.  It makes me really miss being young(er) and being more carefree.  I miss those days.  Pruning through my old photo albums on my external hard drive also makes me miss the many activities and adventures that I used to partake in.  I had so much fun.  What happened?  The past two years of my life have revolved so much around business building that I feel empty and like my soul has been sucked away and sold off.  I’m not sure who I am anymore… I need time to find who I am again and time to develop myself again.  It will take time and I am glad that I have it at the moment. Life is so short to do things that you’re not happy with or to sell yourself short.  It’s never too late to do the things you want or become the person you want to be.  This message goes both ways — whether you want to become someone grander than who you already are, stay stagnant, or “regress”.  Either way, the time is yours to choose and your life to live.  Make sure to live it for yourself and do what your heart tells you.  Live in the moment and when you look back at the time spent, you will be a happier person because of it.

Is this post too emo for you?  I can’t wait to look back on this stage of my life and appreciate it for there have been a lot of great moments during these past two years.
