… We will all be. One day. Everyone knows that.
But we don’t see it even if it keeps staring right at our faces, day after day, year after year. We forget.
I lost 4 family members in the last 2 months. 3 of them, unexpectedly. 2 of them on the day after the auspicious ‘Diwali’. That was my hard fall to the ground. And a bitter yet important standing up.
We all know we need to live everyday to the full. Blah! We are probably even bored of it.
But, if we know that we’ll probably be gone with the wind in a swoosh, why not make the most of it. By maybe having to do a few unwanted things everyday. But definitely by doing some of the things we love doing daily. With all our heart.
From our jam packed calendars, let us find time everyday, even if just for 5 minutes, to do something that gives us joy that money can buy, lesson that a classroom can’t teach, peace that nothing else can give. Read, dance, run. Write, create, play. Sing. Something. Anything.
Because sometimes you don’t get the flashback you deserve. So why not make sure you don’t need one!
You never know. When you will just be – Gone with the wind.
P.S – I wrote today. I’m going to read something everyday. Yeah, those are my things!
