H is for Hour Glass: Day-8

“In time’s worksheet, we all have an hour glass on our name, in which sand of time keeps trickling with every passing moment.”

Well, we are all aware of the fact that we are here only for a limited time, but the problem is that we don’t know what that limit is. But limit is not limit in real. It’s just the turn in the cyclic process. So are we limited? May be we are limited by the number of days we live, but not by the number of ways we can live. This limited time gives us an opportunity to become what we want by assigning priorities. So never think that you are limited in achieving. You are limited just by your mind set, so be flexible with your mindset. Make the most of time by living it to the full and by focusing on the purpose of your life.

We are all living in the same moment of time at present, but not in the same moment of time in our hour glass. Our hourglasses are of different sizes, of different materials and different width of slits. This is what makes us different. We all would have been similar if there was no difference in our hour glass. This makes our life, moments, people we meet, situations different from one another. We just meet for a small amount of time in this hour glass and spend some moments together and then our hour glasses takes us to different destinations. We are meant to reach different destinations. We are just feeling things in this life-less body as we have life, not body. We are the souls of the universe. We have to work for enlightening ourselves (souls) which is our true purpose during the stay. We can turn upside down someone’s hourglass, which means by being connected with their hour glass and moving along together in the journey of life.

Time goes on, it doesn’t care whether it goes with you or without you. May be that’s why we feel sometimes as if time is moving ahead than our life, because we are not in sync with your hourglass and we feel frustrated. No problem, forget everything because worrying just increases the gap and we lag in terms of time. Put that extra effort and get in sync with your hour glass and feel happy. Don’t get attached and struck in material life. Always remember, time often keeps saying ‘Today I May Expire’. So live your life fully in the present. Be healthy. Be strong. Be wise. Be timely. Be happy. Be hopeful.

This is my entry for A to Z challenge . It is already day 8 and it is on the letter ‘H’. H is for Hour glass.


Coming to the challenge, as the name itself says it is very challenging. On every day of month April, except Sundays, which makes it to 26 days, each participant should publish a post relating to the letter corresponding to the number of the day thus completing all the 26 alphabets. For example on day 1, the post should be on something related on letter A, on the second day it should be related to B and this goes on. Exciting? Isn’t it?

As always, Thanks for reading. Have a great weekend. Find some time for yourselves. And it’s even cricket season from today, IPL 9. Cheer your team. Tomorrow is Sunday which means break time for this challenge. Have a lovely Sunday.

    Absolutely loved the quote. Sometimes time stands still till it suffocates, and other times, it gallops along and we can’t seem to catch our breath. Lovely narrative.

    Thanks JJ for this wisdom. Its true.The hour glass and sand of time in it continuosly reminds one of the limited time available in this world,hence make best use of it.I love your quote’Always remember,time often keeps saying,TO DAY I MAY EXPIRE.This reminds me of Harvey Mackay’s quote
    Time is Free
    But it’s Priceless
    You can’t Own it
    But you can use it
    You can’t keep it
    But you can spend it
    Once you have lost it
    You can never get it back
