It’s an idea that I got from the blog “Wait But Why”, that I got made to measure. It’s a whole life, represented but the number of months. When I say a “whole life” it’s a life of 90 years. So 1080 circles that represent the 1080 months from the day we are born until the day we die.
We can see the board in two different ways
We can either see it as anxiety inducing as every month I color in a circle. So I’ve lived a month. It shows me what I’ve lived and the number of months that I have left to live. So we can either see it as anxiety inducing or in a completely different way by realising that days are long but years are short. Realising that life is short and that it’s important to make to most of every month that life has to offer.
Days are long but years are short
There are those who say that’s it’s really scary but I find it nice to be made aware that life goes by quickly. MinuteBuzz was 10 years ago. I’m 35 years old and I don’t want to get to the end with loads of regrets or not having accomplished what I wanted to. This board is a gentle reminder that we have a time limit, that our days on earth are numbered and it’s important to know how to make the most of it.
