Through time we know the year, the month, the day, the hour, the minute, the second. From sunrise to sunset, from low tide to high tide due to the moon, this is all dependent on time.
Time measures special milestones, birthdays, anniversaries, welcoming a new bundle of joy into the whānau, as well as remembering and honouring those that have passed before us.
There are three stages of time – the past, the present, and the future, but the only time we actually have is the present.
Time is one of the most precious gifts we can give to someone, it teaches us the value of life. Relationships are made or broken depending on the amount of time you choose to invest. And the ones that suck your energy, create a boundary, spend less time with them so you protect your time and energy.
Time is a funny thing. It can seem to drag on when we’re bored, and yet it can fly by when we’re having fun.
Time is a teacher and a healer, sometimes the only way to get a new perspective on a situation or experience is to give it time.
No matter how well we manage our time, eventually we all run out of it.  Time is the one thing that you can never get back, once it’s gone, it’s gone and none of us knows how much time we have on this earth.  
The only thing that is equal in this world is time.  Everyone has the same 24 hours a day, 1440 minutes a day, 86,400 seconds in a day.  The only difference is how we choose to spend our time.  Netflix? Scrolling? Studying? Working? Loved ones? Sleeping? Partying? Wrong crowd? Traveling? Your choice!
If you want to know the importance of time…
⏰Ask a woman in labour
⏰ Ask a student who’s studied for 5 years and just failed an exam
⏰ Ask a rugby player when their teams are a draw and there’s 3 mins left on the clock
⏰ Ask a sleep deprived mum who’s about to take a well deserved nap
⏰ Ask an Olympic sprinter who’s aiming for a world record
⏰ Ask a millionaire who’s on their death bed who knows he can make plenty more money but can’t buy more time
⏰ Ask a daughter who’s lost her Dad and wants one last dance, one last hug, one last word
⏰ Ask a parent who’s lost a child 
So, use your time wisely and make the most of every moment.  Live life to the fullest and pursue your dreams.
