This I’ve Learned

about the months we all spent confined to our homes because of Covid-19. It’s like time wasn’t important. There was always tomorrow. It makes me wonder how many more procrastinators there are today. As we grow older, we realize how precious time is and we don’t want to waste any of it. But I don’t want to waste time worrying about wasting time. I once heard if you are happy when wasting time then you’re not wasting time. I’ll buy that.

(Most of you have heard before…here it is again)
To realize the value of ONE YEAR, ask a student who failed a grade.
To realize the value of ONE MONTH, ask a mother who gave premature birth.
To realize the value of ONE WEEK, ask the editor of a weekly newspaper.
 To realize the value of ONE DAY, ask the person who was born on February 29th.
 To realize the value of ONE HOUR, ask the lovers who are waiting to meet.
 To realize the value of ONE MINUTE, ask a person who missed the train.
 To realize the value of ONE SECOND, ask a person who just avoided an accident.
 To realize the value of ONE MILLISECOND, ask a person who won a silver medal, not gold.


With a five-pound potato sack in each hand extend your arms horizontally and hold for one minute, then relax. After two weeks of this exercise move up to ten-pound potato sacks. After one month try fifty-pound sacks. Eventually, you will be able to lift one-hundred-pound potato sacks in each hand, holding your arms straight for one minute. After you feel confident, put a potato in each sack.
