Five Sentence Fiction : Time

Word Prompt : TIME


Time…she could not work out whether she had too much of it or whether it was in short supply.

What she did know was that whatever time she had left, it would not be wasted.

She would no longer look back on the past, and lament at how she had spent her teenage years, her early twenties.

At the same time, she realised it was no good speculating about what the future had in store.

It was one of life’s most important lessons, to embrace the here and now, live in the moment, not the past, not the future….a life lesson she was finally ready take on board.

    Sounds like she’s been reading Eckhart Tolle. Could be the beginning of an interesting (longer) story!

    This is something I really need to get to grips with – living in the moment. You encapsulated the thought very well here, I enjoyed it.
