Lately, I have realized that life is too short and you never know what happens from one minute to the next and I always say to my family, my friends that it is very important to keep on communicating with loved ones as much as possible, enjoy, cherish moments with people whom are part of your lives because you never know, the next day those moments to cherish with that person will no longer be. Life has so many surprises, twists, turns, obstacles, ups, downs, which is why I always say.
I always bring up the materialism subject, because not everything is about materialism in life. We can always replace items, and everything, but we can never replace our loved ones and people in our lives who have passed on and we can never replace the memories we have had with them as it will always be part of us in our lifes journey. We must always remember the good times we have with people, cherish, keep in touch as much as possible because you are here today, but gone tomorrow or your here in the morning, gone at night. Life is unpredictable and we never know what it brings us, which is why I say, enjoy life, take everything lightly, and some people always hate on others and do terrible things. I mean what for? Were all on this earth, lets live and let live and have peace and harmony in this world where we can one day tolerate each other and stop the fighting, bickering, and all these terrible things people do.
This year of 2012, has been a really terrible year so far after losing 3 of my relatives, and all of them were so special to me and all I have of them now are memories that will live on with me forever. Never stop saying I love you to loved ones, never stop saying thank you to them, and always appreciate who they are and the time spent together. Rekindle bonds that have been broken, talk about problems you have with others, solve them or else sometimes when problems are not solved we often regret it and sometimes its too late to say I am sorry. I am saying that you never know how long we have in this world and we have limited time, so we must enjoy and forget about things that don’t really matter and focus our energy on the people.
My Condolences to those who have lost loved ones. It is not easy, but always know I am here to give you a virtual hug, virtual shoulder to lean on and I am here to listen because people are important to me and they are my NUMBER ONE!
Peace and Love to all.
You are absolutely right. When my kids were little, if they had an accident and broke something, I told them, “It’s okay. People are more important than things.” I am sorry you have lost ones who are dear to you. There is an African Folk Tale that says, “One is never really gone until one is forgotten. You are keeping the love alive.
Talin – Sorry to learn about your losses. The people we love in life are precious. Life is short and unpredictable. Your post about staying connected is right on. I keep telling family and friends it’s about the people and what you experience with them that matters. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Keep the faith.
Talin – I share your opinion, I too have lost loved ones and sometimes feel the pain, let’s all live in harmony and enjoy good moments, as you said life is too short.
may you be comforted
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know it can be very painful. I lost my only child my daughter last March. It is true we need to dedicate more time and energy to love and serve the ones we love. And even people we don’t know. Thanks for sharing.
So sorry for the loss of your loved ones. It hurts like crazy when we know that we will never physically see them again. Like you said, remember the good times you shared with them. Most importantly lets cherish those with us now. Life is too short indeed.
Blessing to you at this time, I am sure you know those who have crossed over remain near, but you cannot see them … Dr Wayne Dyer said it bet -‘ today is not the first day of the rest of your life – live like today is the LAST day of your life’. We can never know about tomorrow until it become the present. Peace be with you -gs
I just turned 50. Although I know that’s not a really old age to be, I find myself thinking of my mortality much more than I used to. I know I need to enjoy each day and think more of my loved ones – on a daily basis. I even find myself wondering at times what am I going to trade this one day I have for. Great post and I’m sorry about your losses. The huge hole these losses have created surely feels like it can never heal. But, with time, we all know it will get easier and life goes on. Take care and God bless!
I am very sorry about your loss and I hope the rest of 2012 will be kind to you. Lots of love and big hugs.
Nicely said, Talin. Life is indeed too short. My condolences to you and your family.
Sorry for your loss. I have also lost my mother, eleven years this year, and grandparents and some aunts and uncles. They are all greatly missed, but I miss my mother most of all.
I agree. No one can “predict the hour”, so it is important to appreciate those things that matter to us. One of the gifts from my serious accident was realizing what was truly important in life, and what was not.
I’m sorry this year made such a sad start for you. The past may have been short, but the future could be long. You have still 11 months for year, during that you will have a plenty of joyfull things, too.
I am so sorry for your recent losses. They say bad things happen in threes, so hopefully your family will have a healthy rest of the year. Like you say, never leave anything unsaid or regrets on the table.
Life is too long and not too short… because as far as my experience goes I have not yet come across anything in real, longer than life itself!
Hi There…when you get to my age you really find out that matrial stuff does not matter.
I am going to do a huge declutter before then of April.
I think I shall feel good.
I am sorry for your losses. You are right “life is too short”. Live today to its fullest!
