I read a quote today. Its image is posted below. It was tagged under ‘love quotes’, however I think its applicable to our entire life.
After reading it, I immediately thought, am I getting late at doing certain things? I also remembered one of my old posts, ‘Don’t procrastinate, Contemplate’.
I recalled the folders I have created on my computer. I have four folders on my desktop titled Dream 1, Dream 2, Dream 3 and Dream 4. As I work on my dreams or collect the relevant material/information to make them come true, I place it in those folders.
One of those dreams has already come true! 🙂 The rest of them are a little tough, so I’m working on them. 😉
I know I keep repeating that, we need to enjoy every moment of life and make the most of it.
I am trying to approach the problem from a different angle today – From the eyes of people who say that their life is almost over and they have played their innings.
We all know that we have limited amount of time on this earth. We(including me!) still waste our time doing things which will hold no value for us ever.
Some of my relatives, friends, family – who are old now – say that their life is almost over. Itmakes me very sad, firstly because it makes me emotional and secondly because it makes me feel life is so transient. It’s a phase.
There is no guarantee about how long one is going to live and there is no point fearing it also. You fear the unknown but the fact that ‘life ends’ is known to everyone.
Knowing that life is precious encourages me to work harder on my dreams.
As long as you are alive, It’s never too late to work on your dreams and inspire others to work on theirs. Begin now.
The moment you think… you’re not peaceful… or you’re not happy… the peace and happiness that exists within you is lost!
The moment you think you are less than others or do not have the ability to succeed… you’ve lost the power and motivation to succeed….
“Moment”… is a small droplet in the ocean of “Time” …. but isn’t this all we have?
A moment has the power to change your life! Your destiny! How can we underestimate the power of the moment?? While you think you are not capable of achieving your goals… you’ve already lost some precious moments…
While you’re busy thinking what others are doing, you’ve lost the moments in which you could have done something.
Each moment… Think that you are peaceful, happy and content. You are living just for this moment…. as it will never come again…
Let me share a small story: I met a person in the office cafetaria one day. He was constantly tapping his feet and browsing on his phone while the cashier was collecting his credit card and swiping it on the machine. He seemed very restless and did not stand still. I did not know who he was. I was standing behind him and asked him, “You seem very busy and in a rush” He said…”I’m a very busy person. I have lots to do. I have to do something right now. I can not stand idle. I have to keep myself busy.”
I had a little smile on my face. I said…”Well… you could just stand and think.”
And then the cashier gave him his credit card and he left….(in a rush) 🙂
I think …he was trying to over-utilize his present moments… 🙂
Spend your moments wisely… and more importantly …peacefully… Be at peace…be content…be hopeful…for the next moment… Plan for good… Plan for a better future.. a better moment…
I was driving back from work one day and while taking the exit, the car in front of me stopped suddenly.. I stopped too and then the car behind me stopped! It was scary for a moment…..but…it happens…The car in front of me had a sticker on it.. “Jesus listens” 🙂
These moments make you realize.. Life is too short…. Its just a collection of moments. Its a package. Its like an empty bag and it’s up to you, what you fill in that bag!
Fill each moment with colors, hopes, dreams, excitement, fun, joy, peace, love…. Fill them so that you’re happy… each moment.
The reason I named this article.. “You’ve lost it! ” is because…. Next time, when you are not happy or peaceful… think how many moments you’re losing…. Moments that could change your life…
One more small peace of advice.. Don’t be angry for too long.. whether its your fault or not.. it’s not worth it…! It’s just not worth it! Saying sorry never makes anyone small. Not saying sorry (when it is really not your fault) does not make anyone big. 🙂
Don’t let life say to you…. “Sorry dude.. you’ve lost it! ” 😉 🙂
