“Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!”

Said the white rabbit while looking at his watch right before disappearing into his rabbit hole. If there’s one thing that controls everything in this universe, it must be without any shadow of a doubt, time, the almighty time! We’re afraid of it. We want to enslave it to avoid being enslaved by it.

Tick…Tock… You’re going to be born soon, go down that rabbit hole and discover a whole new world, the wonderland!

Tick…Tock… You’re going to take your first steps soon. It’s the beginning of your adventures; you will have to choose how far your feet are going to take you, how high the mountains you’re going to climb.

Tick…Tock… Today is your first day at school. You will meet new people, learn new things. You will have to choose if you want to keep learning, are you going to accomplish what you want to achieve? Or what you are told you can achieve?

Tick…Tock… You are a teenager, not a child and not an adult yet, time to rebel against everybody and everything, you will have to choose if you want to rebel against the shallow things, or against the foundations. Will you rebel now, later? Or never?

Tick…Tock… You’re going to university in few months, time to decide on your future. You will have to choose your path, what you’re passionate about. Are you going to follow your parents’ advice? How much influence will they have on your life choices, how much control will society have on you?

Tick…Tock… you’re starting work tomorrow, how exciting! Finally, a responsible adult, earning money and paying bills. You will have to choose if you will let your job and that paycheck control you, can you break free if you need to?

Tick…Tock… What’s next?

Oh dear! Time is running out! If you don’t do anything about it, you shall be too late!

Be mindful of time, and write back.
