Too busy to realize that
Life is too short. And yet, We are too busy to realize that.
You never know what awaits you in the future. There you are, planning a trip for the next week with your friends and, there, within a blink of an eye, they are gone.
That's how long it takes for it to happen.
For half of our lives, we keep trying to excel and achieve what we haven't yet, while, as for the other half, usually, we spend it crying over the wrong decisions we made in the past. Which eventually leads us to forget the most meaningful part of our life; The Present. While regretting the past and worrying about the future, we usually forget to live the present, to live the moment we still have. And that's why life seems to be too short for us.
What we need to do is to learn to "Enjoy the moment". Because if we don't; soon, it will also become the past, adding up as another item in our "Regret List". And that list will keep growing until we learn to do so. So it's better that we do.
What stops us from doing so? And why is it important?
Well, some people think that the idea of "Enjoying the moment" is a total waste of time, and that's why they don't bother taking a break and keep working hard for the future.
Working hard for the betterment of the future is a good thing. But sacrificing the Present moment for the future, The future that might not even exist can be regretful. So it is better to live the moment while planning for the future rather than regretting it later.
Most of the problems that the human race is facing these days are because we have forgotten something inevitable, something which has no stopping; Death.
We, humans, have forgotten that no matter how hard we try, how wealthy we are, how many guards we have or what status we have in society, We are gonna die in the end anyway. Sooner or Later, It's just a matter of time, Just a short life to live.
So, If we have a short life, then why? Why ruin it for something as useless as hatred, jealousy or revenge? Or for any kind of negativity. Why can't we just live with peace and harmony? Why some of us have to be so cruel?
The answer is simple, Ignorance.
Ignorance that everything is going to be the same as it is today.
One thing I forgot to mention above that
Even though for most of us, life can seem too short; but, for others, It can be an endless nightmare as well.
This category usually includes those people who have been through a lot, who have suffered a lot.
For those, still, I would say that whatever you have been through, try(even though it can be challenging) to overcome it and enjoy what you have now, now that you have survived.
You get to live once, so live it as you like it. Do not ruin it for something useless.
Don't miss any opportunity, because you might not get another chance.
So, friends, here it comes to an end. I know this article has gotten a bit dark but bare with it. As it is reality, I had to write about it. Some of you might feel depressed after reading it. For those, I only have one thing to say. "Don't, Because I didn't". The purpose of this article was
To teach you to live the moment, not to fear death.
I hope this article will help you in some way.
