Sunday Tincture of Time

Sunday Tincture of Time

Most of us have heard the phrase: “Will it matter in five or ten years?” This question is a way of putting things (worries) in perspective. If it won’t matter in five years it isn’t very important and certainly not worth expending a lot of mental energy on.

Another phrase I love is “the tincture of time”. In the past (and sometimes, today), medicine was often delivered as a tincture. A tincture is: “a solution of alcohol containing, animal, vegetable or chemical drugs “. It is taken in very small quantities – usually only a drop or two.

The tincture of time therefore, is another way of saying let time take care of it, or give it some time. Many medical conditions will go away without intervention, given enough time. Most problems, worries and concerns will go away too – if given the tincture of time.

From the Big Blue Book of Ballet Secrets:
Motivational Secret #37:  
“The tincture of time has a way of showing us what really matters.”
