What if today is your last day on earth? Think about it again. What if it’s REALLY your last day to live? What are you going to do today before you die tomorrow? We often take death for granted and you probably think you’re too young to die. The hard truth is, nobody’s too young to die. Death is for all ages and you could die today. We, humans, live as if we have all the time in the world and just do things without much care and effort. We eat, sleep, drink, go to school or work on a daily basis. The sad thing about this is we allow “important” daily activities to take away our attention from things that are REALLY IMPORTANT like, showing love to people around us.
When was the last time you hugged your parents and said, “I love you”? When was the last time you spent time helping your brother or sister on their homework? When was the last time you said, “Sorry,” (and meant it well) to people you’ve hurt? (Cheezy ba? Just wait before you think this is all cheeziness.) You can ignore what we’re saying and put off this kind of things since, “May bukas pa naman.” May bukas ka pa ba talaga? How sure are you that you are going to live through 2010?
Sometime we fall down and can’t get back up. We’re hiding behind skin that’s too tough. How come we don’t say I love you enough. Till it’s too late, it’s not too late. Live like you’re going to die tomorrow! If your life flashed before you just as you’re about to die, would you still think it’s cheesy to say, “I love you,” to your parents and to people around you?
January 2010 will end in two weeks and we want to encourage you to live the rest of 2010 everyday like it’s your last day. We hope that you will make it a habit to show love to others because you’ll never know if it’s your last chance.
We only have 84, 600 seconds in a day and 525, 600 minutes in a year. Make the most out it.
