What do we make of it? We lead fragile lives. That’s what. It takes just one stroke to reach ‘The End‘ of one’s game here; everything that we worked for, toiled for, hoped for, prayed for gets wiped out in one moment! Life. One little word that holds so much weight, and promise, and hope and dreams, but, which also comes with the “Do not trust me” tag. Such uncertain is our life.
Despite knowing this fact, we keep moving ahead, full of faith and a firm resolve that come what may, we will reach our destination. We make huge plans for our life, as if we were born with the knowledge about our longevity. Not for a moment do we stop to consider if we will even live that long! We humans are such – hurrying to reach a moment in the future, preparing for that moment and working towards that moment. Seldom do we stop to live in the moment – the moment when we are alive!
I, too, plan on doing a hundred things an year from now, two years from now. But, there are times, when a little voice in my head stops me in my tracks and reminds me to live a little now, breathe a little now, give my best to whatever little I do now and think about the future if and when it arrives! Que sera sera!
For, life is uncertain, fragile. You never know what’s in store for you, or when you will have to bid adieu. So, why not live for today, be happy today, be grateful for today and leave the rest to destiny? Why not seize this day and turn it into a miracle?
