The concept of time is absolutely mind blowing. We understand time in our day-to-day events but when you sit down to think about the concept of time and space, I guarantee it will blow your mind. One book I highly recommend is Why Does E=mc2? (And Why Should We Care?) by Brian Cox is absolutely wonderful in explaining Einstein’s theory of relativity and why we should care. The truth is, we should care.
It’s sad but there are so many concepts we learn in middle and high school but quickly forget because we are so wrapped up in other things like boyfriends and tamagotchi’s (please tell me you know what a tamagotchi is…) It’s a beautiful thing revisiting Science, Math, English, Art, etc. as an adult especially because so much has changed since the first time we learned it; I know that my perspective and appreciation is so much greater.
Unfortunately, we cannot escape our concept of time and here it is in our faces everyday. It’s insane that the summer is coming to an end and we are now closer to Fall. The more years go by, the faster time seems to get and I am really making it a point to enjoy each moment and to make the days really count. What does that mean? Well, progress towards career goals, progress towards relationships, and progress to overall mental and physical health on a daily basis.
I am reminded of Andy Warhol’s quote:
“They always say time changes things,
but you actually have to change them yourself.”
Cheers to Einstein and Brian Cox!
