When he was asked to explain his theory of relativity in simple terms, Einstein replied, "Sit with a pretty girl for an hour and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity." Or, as someone else once philosophized, "The length of a minute depends on which side of the bathroom door you are."

Time tends to increase or decrease depending how conscious you are of it.

When you’re feeling stressed, time goes slowly, but when you’re in the moment, loving life with a lightness of being, then you seem to have all the time you need ….. you look at your watch and what seemed like magic moments and minutes, turn out to be happy hours and delightful days.

Lovers really do make a fool of time.

The ancient Greeks had two different words for time:

Chronos – this is calendar time. Seconds, minutes, hours and days

Kairos – this literally means, "when the time is right"

Most of us wear chronometers (watches). But what if we wore kairometers instead which tapped into our heart, our gut and our soul, so we took the right action at the right time. To eat only when we’re hungry, to rest whenever we’re tired, and to take the action that our intuition is nudging us to take.

Time is a bit like the wind, it lifts the light and leaves the heavy.

So make sure you do the light thing.

Dear Barry Manilow haters,

Please respect him.

I owe my life to Barry.

On 14th August 2015 I was in a coma for 4 months due to a terrible car accident.

One day my nurse turned on the radio and I heard one of Barry’s songs playing.

After 4 months in a coma, I opened my eyes for the first time, managed to get up, and turn off the radio.
