Life is too short and happiness is too rare
One day when I was waiting in the car, looking at the road and wondering about everything…wondering about nothing…Then I saw this person, a pleasant looking middle aged person. He was crossing the road. It was just an ordinary sight. And then…..BLAST….!!! He was down and bleeding. He has been hit by another vehicle. It all happened within a blink of an eye that it took me a while to realize what had really happened.
People gathered around him, someone called for an ambulance. Someone else called for police. I was in a state of shock for a few minutes. I was may be the only person who saw him….just seconds before he passed out. I saw how he was struggling to get up. I know he wanted to LIVE. The ambulance drove away hurriedly…leaving me with thousands of emotions.
Maybe his wife was waiting for him at home. May be he has promised his children that he will come home early that day. May be he was returning from meeting someone he loves. May be he was his parents last hope.
Life is so fragile, we hear this almost every day. Yet, have we really apprehended it?
We always wonder about the purpose of our existence in this world, hesitating whether we are at the right place at this phase of our lives; that we forget everyday to LIVE life. What we fail to realize is that we are losing precious moments of our lives which we can never be reoccurred.
Love and respect everyone around you. Who knows? It may be the last time you will get to see them. Take one moment at a time. Walk through life a little slower. Do not waste this precious life stressing over things you do not have any control. Our happiness lies within us. We will not find it anywhere else.
Love with an open heart. Love fully, forgive easily and choose wisely. Just take a look around. There are so many things to be appreciative to… people who makes the life worth living for. Life is beautiful. We just have to feel it. Follow your heart, listen to the nature; you may find the answers there and you may just find yourself there…!
