Valuable Coin

"Time is the most valuable coin in your life.  You and you alone will determine how that coin will be spent.  Be careful that you do not let other people spend it for you.  " - Carl Sandburg

As the years have gone by, I realize that many times I let someone else spend my coin.
I wish I had read this quote many many years ago.  Old dog is still learning.


  1. That is a powerful statement. It took a moment for me to totally grasp what he was saying. I too have allowed others to help me spend my coin.

  2. I'm not sure I grasp the truth of this quote but I think that our free will is an equally valuable coin in our life. Most of my life has been spending my time doing something for others because I'm a compassionate and caring person but it's done with my free will but on the other hand I despise having someone forcing their will on me.
    Have a great mid week.
