Do you realise how much time you waste ? Today i was thinking.. I'm 17 and what have I done with my life ? There are 525,600 minutes in a year, 8765 hours in a year, 365 days in a year and 12 months in a year... that means that i have been on this earth for over 8,935,200 minutes !! i wonder how many of those minutes i've wasted watching tv... browsing the internet... staring into space... playing my playstation2... or just lazing about... interesting dont u think ? how many minutes have u been on this earth for ? (age x 525,600) how many have you think uve wasted ? isnt it strange thinking about these things ? are u wasting time right now thinking about these things while u can be making a difference in the world ? what have YOU been doing with your life ?

Hi marian! Welcome to myLot! I can say for nearly around 30 years there was more time I devote thinking of improving myself as a better individual, a faithful wife and a responsible mother. When you are happy and contented with life you can never think that I wasted lots of time for doing nothing because most of the time I was in the move to be a useful one. It is what we became and what we do are the product of the things we do in our life and if we don't have any regrets about it, you will never think you wasted a single mili second of your life here on earth.

Well I am 34. I admit I have wasted sometime in my life myself. I just got divorced last year to a man that broke my heart in to. That was a very big waste of time. I finally got my high school diploma last year. i dropped out of school when i was 18 but at least I have went back and finished through homeschool so that is great. I guess it is thinking about the possitive thingsa in life is what counts.

To tell you the truth, I never really thought about it that way. I am 23 years old and i have three children. i don't think that any of my children are a waste in my life. But my last marriage was, somewhat a waste. it lasted for only two years. and my ex cheated on me. so that's over and done with now. I don't feel that any of my time here on earth has been wasted at all. i have learned from my mistakes and the mistakes of others. and i'm trying to enjoy life with my family and friends.

hmmm. i think you cant really say that you waste time becaue every moment that you live is a gift from God, every moment is precious. even the 'lazing' about shouldnt be taken for granted because there are so many ppl that aren't lucky enough to have that luxury and if you think about it just relaxing is what people miss most when they cant do it. i dont know what i have been doing in my life but each moment has made me me and u love me for who i am now so i gotta say my life has been great. i dont know how my life has been but i know what i wanna do in the future. i want to save lives...maybeb i cant save teh world but mybe i can save teh person that will...maybe its u
