Let's talk about time, just for a second.
We've all had wonderful moments. Moments that never lose their glow, even in the depths of our memory. But time is fleeting, and no matter how much we want to keep a moment, we never can. The world keeps going and going and going and if we try to hold on to one moment, the world will eventually leave us behind.
But "time is measured only unto man."
Think of eternity. I know it sort of hurts the brain, but just think of it for a second.
In the words of the Doctor, it's all "wibbily wobbily timey wimey" and stuff.
Basically, it's this big thing, happening all at once.
We can only see it in our linear perspective, but really it's expanding in every direction for forever!
Each moment you've ever lived is existing right. now.
You're living countless "firsts" right now.
The moment of your first kiss.
The moment you first stepped into Disneyland.
The moment you first felt the drop in your stomach as the plane rose up into the sky.
You're living countless "lasts" as well.
The moment you said your last goodbye to your grandpa, and you didn't even know it.
The moment where you last saw your sister with her first last name.
The moment when you last were hugged very tightly.
The world keeps spinning and time seems (to us) to fly forward, but each of those moments is still existing in the eternities. Don't ever cry about saying goodbye to someone, because there is some version of you somewhere out there that is laughing with them right now.
Time is just an illusion, friends. And we're all here to see its magic show.
