When we were born, we were all given a clock with a timer set to go off on our expiration date. We don’t know when that is. It may be in 80 yrs, 60 yrs, 30 yrs, or it may be tomorrow.
We go through life as if we’re here to stay forever. We postpone our dreams, trips, vacations thinking we will have enough time. We procrastinate life goals, until life slips out of our hands. If you knew how much time you’ve got, would you have spent your life the way you did?
We stay stuck in traffic, boiling in anger and complaining in frustration. But all those hours of complaining, get deducted from your life span. All the time you wasted, will be regretted close to death. Life is too short, to even waste a minute.
Life is too short, to live in the past. All those minutes you lie on bed, wishing you didn’t blurt out that stupid thing infront of all the people, will be futile. Minutes of life you could have spent on happiness, you wasted on a past grievance, that cannot be reversed. Minutes are more valuable than money.
Life is too short, to be worrying about the future. You don’t even know for certain, that you have a future. These could be the last seconds you’re living on earth. I know I’m painting a bleak picture here. But you know, as I do, it’s the truth.
Life is happening now. Right now. So stop your mind from wandering around the universe, and stay here. Live in this moment, where you’re breathing your lungs full of air, wearing a face full of dreary sadness, scrolling through Internet. Stop and take a deep breath, curl your lips in a smile and enjoy the moment.
Coz your clock is ticking. Tick Tock! Tick Tock!
