It only takes one thing to put life in perspective. A film, song, life event, it only takes one to confirm what is certain; the fact that death is inevitable and that life is way too short.
If that is the case, then the question that arises is what do we plan to do with our time here on this planet? What, if any, goals or dreams do we want to accomplish before we go? We spend so much of our limited time wondering what is going to happen tomorrow, building the future and sometimes using a whole day sitting on the coach and watching television. Do we ever stop to think about the now? Do we ever think about what can I do to live the best way that I can today, in order to be happy.
The funny thing is that we are so busy building a happy future, instead of living a happy now. What’s worse is that our we are so engulfed in negativity that we also temd to focus on disliking people, judging how people function, and even worry about what other people think of us. Instead, we should be focusing onbour blessings, love the people around us, and being grateful at the fact that we are still living.
I know that my time here is short. I know that I am scared of dieing. I also know that when I do die, nothing material or riches I will obtain will come with me. What I am certain about is what I do with my time and my effects on people will be everlasting. I hope is that I am able to treasure my time with the people I love amd that I can live a happy life.
