Last week Wednesday in class, the class representative made an announcement. It wasn’t just any other announcement but one that was sad and unexpected. One of our classmates had just lost one of his younger brothers.
We all agreed to meet and console our classmate and to show that he isn’t alone in this time that has befallen him and the rest of his family. We met in his room just to console and strengthen him. The class rep said a few words and the meeting was over.
While there, something hit me. I remembered how fragile life is. We are here today but we might be gone tomorrow. I remembered that we all won’t be around forever. One of these days we gonna have to say goodbye to everything and everyone we love. As sad as that sounds, it’s the reality.
Death is something that happens unexpected to anyone whether young or old,healthy or ill. It just comes without asking for our opinion or ideas and we almost have nothing to do except to go.
This whole situation reminded me how important each and every minute am alive is. It reminded me that today and this moment right now is the only time I truly have. This second is the only sure moment I have to do and be whatever I desire and wish to. I may have planned to do different things in the near future say next week or next month or year, but honestly there is no certainty that I will be alive next week or next month. If I have anything really important or a very important decision to make, this is the right moment to make it.
To everyone reading this right now, this is the moment to make that phone call you know you need to make but have been reluctant to make. This is the moment to forgive and set yourself free from the prison of unforgiveness. This is the time to do and be the best you can be because this could be the only moment you will ever have to do all those things. Today could be your last chance to take that first step towards your dreams.
We never really know what tomorrow brings. There is no certainty that tomorrow we will be alive or things will be as they are right now. Life is uncertain.
Today is the day to do all those things deep down your heart you know you have to do. This is the day and the moment to go to those places you have always wanted to go and to say those words you know you need to say to that special person. today is the day to make the change and live better. In short, live today like it’s your last day because honestly it really could be your last.
