Live for the moment, LOVE for the moment
Life and it's little surprises
Your life can change in the blink of an eye. One minute you are living your daily routine and everything is fine, the next minute a loved one can get sick, die, etc. or an accident can happen and then your hit with all these emotions, and the why's and the what if's. Something can happen to you or anyone you know at any living moment. Your whole life can turn around unexpectedly in the snap of a finger. Why should you live with these what if's, when you can start living the right way now. Start appreciating everyone and everything you have NOW. Start living in the present because that is most important. Don't take life for granted because you never know what can happen.
Like I said, your whole life can turn upside down in a matter of seconds...that's why I am writing this. My life has turned upside down in the matter of a week, but thankfully my situation is loaded with loving and caring people, but it HAS changed me and made me think a little more about life. APPRECIATE life. APPRECIATE our existence. We all go on living and get used to our daily routines, and so WE FORGET WHAT WE ARE. We forget that we are people, and we are living, and living- is not something to take for granted. For anyone who reads this, I want you to take these steps with me to live, to actually live. Love and care for everyone who is around you. Say I love you to them everyday, because you never know when the last time you might see a person is. Be happy at all times, and try to be a pleasureful person to be around, try as hard as you can. I have been through so much in my life from a very young age, and while I, of all people should know that life can change very dramatically and unexpectedly, I still forget and need a reminder. And I sure got mine very recently which although the circumstances were very tragic, I appreciate them because it made me remember to LIVE and to LOVE. Love yourself and all those around you. Show them your appreciation. Share and care with and for those around you. It is wrong to start showing love to someone when they are sick or hurt, you should show love at all times. It will make your world brighter. It will make you live with less regret. It really is how life should be lived. We all take life for granted, but take a minute and stop and think about it. Life is a gift and we should use it up to it's fullest.
Don't wait till the last minute!
We only have one life. One chance. Don't screw it up. I'm going to give you an example of what I mean by this. My mother passed away when I was around 13, and the last time I saw her she told me she loved me and gave me a kiss on the cheek before she left for work. She did this everyday. We told each other we loved each other everyday. That's just how we were. Now what if she was in a hurry, mad at the house being dirty and just stormed out without saying bye to me. I'm sure wherever she is now she'd be upset, and so would I, but thankfully that didn't happen. Now I get to live my life knowing that sometimes love, care and happiness are life's little pleasures that we shouldn't take for granted.
Another thing is that we should take chances in life. Taking chances, such as going to that job interview even though you are lazy, or going to that wedding that you don't really feel like going to (hey you can have a good time!), or talking in class when you don't feel like talking. Anything and everything will pay off in the end, whether it works out or not, at least you tried. My job for instance, I absolutely love it and got very lucky. I originally went for an interview to see if I can volunteer there for experience, and guess what? They offered me a job instead and it was well worth the little effort it took me to take my little butt over there and go for that interview. Life it turns out gives you what you give it. If you don't work at it in a positive light, you won't get too far. Focus on productivity, love ,caring for others, getting what you want, and taking reasonable risks and with these little tips you will get what you deserve. And that is a good thing. Happy living everyone!
