A few nanoseconds

So the earth is 4.5 something billion years old, well so we are told, none of us actually know that, but anyway, humans appeared 200,000 years ago, again so we are told. So if you condensed the time that earth has existed into one day, then we’d appear at 23.59 and 57 seconds, so just 3 seconds of that day have we been here! Mind you, we’ve certainly not hung about, we’ve done a lot in those 3 seconds, sadly most of it not so good, to be honest.

Taking it a step further, if each of us lived to say 100 years old, we’d only represent about 100,000 nanoseconds, and if you think that 100,000 nanoseconds sound like a lot, there are a billion in just one second.

The point is we’re not here very long. Enjoy the moment, don’t think, do stuff that matters, enjoy, love, laugh, smile, dance, sing, paint…and just be, be the real you. Oh and don’t give a shit, you haven’t got time to be bothered, angry, frustrated, envious, jealous, hateful and so on.

A few nanoseconds will be gone in less than a blink of an eye.
