Time vs. Me: My Battle Against Time

This is the age of technological advancement.  With the click of a button or the swipe of a monitor, we are able to do stuff which we only previously imagined.  You can talk with an ex-flame from oceans away with the simple touch of a screen, or play online poker with a handsome hunk from Mexico.
I’m not all ecstatic about technology, though.  With the ever increasing number of gadgets and gizmos at our disposal, I wonder why somebody hasn’t yet come up with a time machine.  You can bet your bottom dollar that if and when a time machine finally gets invented, I’d be first in line at the store to get one for myself.
It would be my ultimate dream to go back in time, back to when I was young and without a care in the world.  When I was a child, I fully understood what having fun was all about.  Playing with my Hello Kitty toys and Barbie dolls was all that mattered then- such a far cry from all the worries that wear me down every single day.
But man’s wisdom is limited- or so it seems.  Robots and other forms of artificial intelligence are all around us, but they can’t take us back to parts of our past which we want to relive.  We make remarkable discoveries everyday, but sadly, we have come up with nothing to reverse the hands of time.  Instead, we plod on, trudging life’s rocky trails and peaks.
I guess that’s just how it’s meant to be.  We of feeble intelligence are bound by the laws of science and the universe.  There are simply some things which we must accept and not attempt to tinker with.  Playing god is as dangerous as getting a boob job from a quack doctor.
Now, as I try to conceal fine lines and other signs of aging, I realize that time is not something I should battle wits with.  It is my friend, not the enemy.  Although I may not have the same vigor as I used to, I can still do a mean Running Man…

About Pepper

  1. perhaps my biggest fault is procastinating haha. I do get ample of me time if I choose too but somehow I always end up reading those darn historical romances and thoroughly get lost.

    BNext thing I know, I am running out of time to vacuum. aargh. I really must learn to put my time to good use.

  2. Oooh, so you’re a fan of Hello Kitty pala! :)

  3. Yeah, I was wondering why there are no time machines yet too :P haha but seriously, hmmm… I live by the phrase, “NO REGRETS” (this would be awfully cliche) but it’s because whatever good, bad, luck, or misfortune I’ve encountered makes me who I am now–and I love it. :) So yeah, time is a friend! :D

  4. Totally agree with you. When we begin to battle against time (especially when it pertains to aging), it becomes harder for us to age gracefully. For me, at least. LOL.

  5. Not so sure I’d venture into the past, but it would probably be too much of a temptation for me not to peek into the future. ;)

  6. It’s always a challenge for a man to live in the present, to be neither nailed in the past nor in the future. I get it how we want to be like children again, children who are happy, Children who think only of “now”. So whoever philosopher it is who stated that”the secret to happiness is to live in the present,” I totally agree with him. But then again, that’s quite a challenge for us adults.

    As for aging, I’ve decided long ago, that I would age gracefully. Years may increase the lines on my face, but it should also increase the life wisdom that I have. But if I can defy my age, then, that’s better. =)

  7. I guess age is unstoppable but how we feel is not. We may age in time but we can always have a fresh mindset that makes us young at heart.
