Chronological murder?

Henry David Thoreau: "You cannot kill time without wounding eternity."

Hmm .. how often am I guilty of misusing the gift of my days? I do not believe that rest is wasteful, or necessary self-care, or decent entertainment -- we do not always have to be solemn and dull (and I like my share of fun, a good novel or a decent DVD, say a British detective series) But there are things that waste time -- self-pity (as opposed to grief -- grief processes the pain, self-pity wallows), empty social gestures, unproductive boredom ... I guess the starting point is to really believe that this life of mine, despite certain aspects, is God's good gift to me, not an empty burden. ..
