– Japanese old proverb
How to pronounce: Toki wa egataku shite ushinai yasushi
Literal translation: Time is difficult to get and easy to lose.

How many big chances do we encounter in a lifetime?
We never know. We probably have missed so many chances before already without realising they passed nearby.
Despite this proverb, I guess there’re lots of chances.
The problem is, we usually don’t realise them as the chances, or don’t even care.

In a world that is becoming self obsessed and time poor, I find we often misvalue the small things; giving attention where needed, listening with open ears, giving with an open heart, being kind.
