Here's To You

Or Why You're Time Here is Important

Here's To You

Here's to those of us who work not one but multiple jobs to make ends meet. We're not mad at it, it's what we have to do to well..... Live. Those of us who work a decent day job, but still have a gig job driving people to their destinations safely or simply deliver our food when we're just too tired or frankly lazy to cook today.

Here's to you.

Here's to those of us that have grown comfortable with the times when we may have a grand total of $20 in our bank accounts until Friday and it's only Monday. Those of us that despite the stress of not having a more comfortable sum of cash, we still manage to make it work. Putting a little less fuel in the car, just enough to roll into the next paycheck with the low gas light on. Putting cheaper fuels into the robot (how it may feel sometimes, when there truly is all work and no play.) Eating Ramen for a few days to keep the machines we call our bodies moving forward.

Here's to you

Here's to those of us that manage to make time to not only lookout for our families/friends and provide for them, but to care for them, to make time for them, to love them. Whether if it's to lend a helping hand or to simply be an interested and caring ear to current hardships or victories, no matter how small.

Here's to you.

Here's to those of you that realize that we may not have much, but what we do have is real and fruitful. Not that having money is a bad thing, it's just not the only thing. For those of you that would readily take a good hangout with a couple of close friends over a yacht ride, though the option would be nice, if not persistently out of reach. Those of you that would rather share a modest home cooked meal with friends over the most expensive and exclusive meal at the hottest wherever. Having a belly full of food and more than likely a head full of recreational libations with laughter and stories you laugh about and reminisce about years down the road in fondness.

To those who know status is fleeting, something that can easily be lost with a job or funds in your accounts, that is if you ever had so-called "status" to begin with. Not that this is something that will bar you from having a good life and certainly not worth forsaking lasting relationships for.

To those of you that realize that time is NOT money, for you can ALWAYS make more money, but you can't make more time. You also have no idea how much time you have left, but that's ok, because you're treating it as a precious resource that you often times don't get the luxury of controlling.

To those of you who love openly and loudly.

Here's to ALL of you......
