Dream as if you’ll live forever. Live as if you’ll die today
How many people die in one day? Every man dies in some point in time, but do you think that every man really lives?
Often times, we go through life leaving the little things unnoticed. The smell of our mother’s hair, the color of her eyes, your little brother’s favorite food perhaps? Do we really need a telescope to see the little details that God has carved into our lives? Even appreciating and making the most of these things can make us see the true wonder of life which is life itself.
We who have more than enough senses to see, hear, touch, smell and taste, take life for granted. There is more to Life than just going through it and just dying without getting to actually see the world. Most of us spend our lives as if we had another in the bank. When will we realize then that were better off being blind, deaf, mute and etc? Anyways, I don’t think it’ll change much, the way we are spending our life now. God created the world and humankind, with that, he created the 5 senses for us to truly see the beauty that God created. Use your senses; use your health, even to the point of wearing it out. That is what it is for. Spend all you have before you die. Live everyday as if it were your last…and some day you’ll be right.
Often times, I see people who just mope around doing nothing and feeling sorry for themselves. I understand that everyone may have a bitter past. But God has given us a gift, and it is called the present. I admit I have memories. And for a while, I have stopped living because of this. Until I realized, I have a big future ahead of me. I asked myself, is this the way I want to spend my life until I’m old enough to die? Yes, I have bitter memories, but only a fool stores his past in the future. Old times never come back and I know it is just as well. For what comes back is a new morning every day in the year, and that is better. Be happy while you live. Live! Don’t worry; you’ll have plenty of time to be dead.
