The time is NOW!

There is no next time. It's now or never!
There is no next time. It's now or never!
Live the moment.
Live the moment.

"Life is like a novel,

It's filled with suspense.

You have no idea what is going to happen until you turn the page."

One thing that is yet to be learnt by man is that he doesn't seem to understand,

The power of now.

We aren't going to love forever.

The truth that remains to be unknown is that nothing lasts forever... nothing at all!

The time is now.

Now is the time to be happy. The time to run along those deserted roads,

Where your only companion is the rain,

Now is the time to hold your best friend's hand and take a picture.

Where time doesn't stand still,

But those memories, those pictures,

Now is the time to look into your siblings' eyes and tell them that only if their presence and strength weren't there,

You might have fallen and might never know how to rise.

To tell your loved ones how elated you were when you felt that someone always held to you, no matter what seemed to happen.

Now is the time to tell your parents that if had not been by your side, you might have never existed.

To tell them no matter what happened,

You would always be with them, to count

On their love. Happiness and joy,

And to tell many things you wanted to say but never got the courage to do so..

Because what if there is no tomorrow?

What if someday you look back and don't seem to find your family, friends and loved ones around you?

To assure you that they are always there..

What if you expressed your true feelings to those whom you love?

And never told them what you are really.

Meant to say, only to find that tomorrow, they are no longer there.

All of us have only one life to find and create happiness for ourselves and for others.

We have only one mother, one father,

To teach us how to love, respect others,

Only one tiny nose that is going to

Keep us alive for almost a hundred years.

Only one sun to bring light to our darkened lives.

Only one minute for the world to come crashing down,

Only one second to sleep and never wake up again,

Only one minute to break a heart,

And the same minute to mend a heart.

Only one second to fall in love,

And after all these things and more..

Only "one life to live"..

So let not our minds come to the conclusion,

That it's too late, just too late,

Too late for words to rewind,

Too late for actions to replay,

Too late for those smiles to come back,

It's just too late, too different.

So, live today like there is no tomorrow.

Live the moment like there would never be another!


Life is a gift. Never forget to enjoy and bask in every moment you are in.
Life is a gift. Never forget to enjoy and bask in every moment you are in.

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference.. to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW! Not for any grand cause, necessarily but for something that tugs at your heart, something that’s your inspiration, something that’s your dream. You owe it to yourself, to make your days here count.

“Your time is limited, don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

Life is a gift. Never forget to enjoy and bask in every moment you are in.

“There’s no next time. It’s now or never.”

Out of the 13 Hubs that I wrote, this one took the longest. The hub doesn't look all that long, but this one is my favourite among them all. This one is very close to my heart. I'm not that good a writer (I'm a BAD writer) so make sure you let me how this one is, even if it's bad. Lol. G'day! =)

This is a great reminder to all of us that Time is not limitless...

once time has passed, it is gone forever. We all need reminding, sometimes, just how critical the NOW really is! Thanks!
