Using Time Wisely

We often convince ourselves that the fastest way to get somewhere in life is the shortest distance between two places. There are times and circumstances where what you did on the way to the destination is all that matters. Those women missed the most important point: don’t sit around and wait when you should be getting something done.

What Erwin says is true, we often try to go the shortest distance, thinking it’ll be the fastest way between two places. Another truth that goes along with this is that we often wish the burdens we have didn’t even come to us. We try to take the shortest route or get rid of it all together. But like Gandalf says: All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. I believe we should all be willing to struggle through because, like Erwin says, there are times and circumstances where what you did in the way to the destination is all that matters.
I challenge you, and once again this includes myself, to be willing to step up and not just take the shortest path.

Frodo: “I wish none of this had happened.” Gandalf: “So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”
