After the heartbreaking news I learned about two days ago, I guess I am half okay. No one will ever be okay when it comes to life-threatening illnesses and the moment you or a loved one is diagnosed with it, it’s like your whole world shatters and it will totally change the way you live your life and your attitude.
You may be given months or a number of years to live and the thought of it is scary, in a sense that, you will leave all your friends and family..and that is something no one ever wants to happen. Maybe that’s why people are scared of dying. When your days are numbered, you get scared at first and then as the days go by, you will realize that you just have to make the most out of the remaining days of your life.
But come to think of it, healthy or ill, our days are numbered. The only difference is we don’t know exactly when we are going to die. Most of us don’t even think about death on a day-to-day basis. Well, why would we think about it when we are enjoying summer at the beach, singing out loud in karaokes, laughing with friends, working out… We just forget the fact that everything can change in a split second. There is nothing wrong with having fun. We just have to keep in mind that while having fun, we should always make every moment with our friends and family very memorable because we don’t know if it’s the last time that we are ever going to see them.
Hug people when you can. Kiss passionately. Say “I love you” to the people you love. Make time for friends and family. Forgive your enemies. Help and don’t ask for anything in return. Explore different places. Have more patience. Always smile. Be a blessing to other people.
Life is short and it’s never too late to do these things.
“You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth or falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you.”
