When I read the prompt was about Time - I thought I'd repost my What I learnt from Rush. Point 6 is probably my biggest lesson in Time, the importance of Time, and that it can be the best gift we have.

The short version, for those that don't know, is that Niki Lauda was burnt in a car crash, and greatly disfigured. He had countless skin grafts to his face, and at the time (in the film), said he had a face that would always horrify people. Yet he has always been one of the most popular drivers in F1, and judging by the women he was linked to after his divorce, his looks didn't impede him at all.

I want to always remember, that no matter how difficult or painful the current ordeal, time will put it into perspective. So while time can be unkind, or down right cruel as we age, it is also a gift that eases pain, or diminishes drama.

My favourite saying, however, as a convert who lives by FOMO (the good FOMO, not the jealous kind) "Do not squander time, for that's the stuff life is made of"

And that, as they say, is all that I have Time for!

Linking up with Kirsty for I Must Confess

PS. As for point 4, in the Rush post, this woman was rockin' the 70's hat. I really am going to start wearing one all the time!


  1. It's only since No.3 arrived that I have started to really value and try and make the best use of the time I have! Great hat for sure! x Em

  2. Those hats are awesome aren't they? Not to mention incredibly practical where I live. I do love that quote, thanks for sharing

  3. I agree with the power of perspective with the passing of time

  4. Recently, I've stopped believing in coincidence and started to realise that everything that happens to us - everything we see, hear, everyone we meet and everything we read - happens to us for a specific purpose. I think I clicked on your blog today and read this post because I needed to be reminded that time eventually puts everything into perspective. Thank you. xx
