The Hourglass...


We are now in an emerging generation Y wherein everything is in fast pace.Running after schedules, meetings and the everyday struggles wherein even "Juan Tamad",a comic character once known to have waited for the fruit from falling directly his mouth, is no longer in his sitting pretty position. He has to work inorder to survive. We are no longer parasites just waiting to be fed. And we realize after a hard day labor that we are not only running after survival from physical starvation but we are also running after time so that one day, our chasing after rainbows will be met. We get satisfied with what we have on our hands today but tomorrow we realize that we no longer want it and would want another brand new thing because a new model is now out in the market.

This is the hard truth of being mortal...the never-get-to-feel-satisfied feeling.As if a tingling current within our system is telling us that we want more when we actually have very less for the part of being human in a world that is temporal. If we happened to notice how the sand in an hourglass flow spontaneously and yet we are fully aware that it measures how much time we've consumed for a certain task. Are we on the other hand rushing one after another and compelled to finish them because the sand in the hourglass of our life's routine is almost completely finished from pourin? Do we still get to notice the sun as it shines in the morning or appreciate the misty flower in its pot? The small details of life most often ignored because there are more big things to comply.

I, for the most part, am guilty of that. I am not a busy person. But sometimes I still get to find myself running after an hourglass. Just what it is that is more important between the simple and complicated things? All still so interconnected and chained to define us and differentiate us from the realm of life. I only wish that at every end of the day, as I rest my head so comfortably on my pillow in bed,I would'nt want to forget to thank God for everything.Because its not how much in my list that I've accomplished within my day's hourglass...but its how much I cherish and value life everyday as it comes.
