Fickle Things


Oh what fickle a thing time is.
We think we have all the time in the world so we keep putting things off for another day. We wait for the time to be just right, for those “special” days, and in doing so, we miss out on a huge chunk of our lives.

Oh what fickle a thing feelings are.
We think we’ll love someone for a long, long time and will never be able to get over them and then circumstances change and force us and our feelings to change as well.

Oh what fickle a thing timing is.
We realize certain things at some point in our lives, but when we try to act on them, we find out that it’s too late, and that if we had realized them just a few days, a few hours, or even a few minutes earlier, things would have been different and maybe in our favor now.

But I guess it’s because these things are so fickle that we actually take some action in life. We never know how much time we have left so we try to make each moment count.
We never know what obstacles will be thrown our way and how they’ll affect our relationships with the people in our lives so we try to give each relationship our all and not take the moments for granted.
And we never know whether the timing is “right” or not, so all we can do is try our hardest in every single thing we do so that no matter what happens, we don’t have any regrets or dwell on the what-ifs when we look back on everything.
