That day when you receive a bad news.
At 3am, my cousin was on his way home from a birthday party driving his motorcycle. He was maneuvering his way through the intersection when he slammed into the rear end of a passing truck. That second marked the last moment of his life. At 20 years old, he’s gone too soon.
Moments- how fleeting they are. Life- how fragile it becomes when we come face to face with death. A day comes when your time runs out. A day comes when your heart stops beating and you breathe your last breath. Will the world around you stop ‘cause it suddenly lost you? Will your passing cause a sting in its core, or will it go about uninterrupted in its course, not realizing for a second that you actually existed? The answer right there would define the meaning of the life you lived.
We know that our time in this world is not infinite but most of us are not living our lives like we know this. Otherwise:
– we would have been more gentle with our words, and kind with our thoughts
– we would have walked away from pointless arguments and endless dramas
– we would have been more thoughtful of our loved-ones and careful with their hearts
– we would have admired the rain and the sun just the same
– we would have appreciated work, art, beauty and our capacity to build, to create, to
– we would have taken just enough for ourselves and shared the rest with the world
– we would have been more aware of the things around us even those we can’t see, but only feel and touch and hear
– we would have loved more and worried less
– we would have valued people knowing that someday soon we may lose them too
So many things to cherish, to experience, to learn, to share, to give. If we only open ourselves to the endless possibilities around us and open our hearts to every good thing it can do and accomplish, the world would be very blessed.
Every fiber of your being is magic. Every cell in your body has been created wonderfully and with a purpose. You matter. You were made to. So celebrate life every chance you get. Time waits for no one, not even for the best of us, so make every moment count.
