What do you do with your time?

How do you pass the moments of your life?

Moments shape our destiny.
Our future.
Our children’s future.

We speak of inheritance as a monetary substance. It’s not.

Inheritance is the air around us.
The looks between us.
The love we share.

The memories that embed themselves into our brain on a random Tuesday as we lug in overpriced groceries with a barefoot child on us piggy back during a torrential downpour. 

We craft this inheritance day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute. 

Our time is the currency of inheritance.

It bankrolls itself, developing and flowing from the words we speak, the way we react, and the choices we make.

It doesn’t fall haphazardly from the sky. 

It’s not something we can wish into existence. We have to grab it.
Craft it. Mold it.

Minute by minute.
Hour by hour.
Day by day. 

What do you do with your time?
