Life is short. The world is aging. Time is fleeting.
Some little things I often forget to enjoy are the simple moments that I have with my parents. I am a family- centered individual. Everything I do is for them. However, as I grow older, I become more and more busy and my attention is gradually diverted to other things. This, oftentimes, make me overlook and miss the little things that I should enjoy with my parents.
When I was a child, I would always sleep beside my mother who would always embrace me and sing me a lullaby. Now, I no longer sleep beside her. Everytime I have a conversation with my father, I don't usually take time to enjoy it. Because of studies and social media, it seems like I am already missing the little things that I used to enjoy when I was still young.
I want to accentuate here that family meals could be a little thing for it's been part of our daily routine. But, I often forget to enjoy it. It is for a reason that lately, I have been waking up late and have been going home late, thus having no chance to join them during mealtime.
I would also like to share how loving my mother is. Everytime I go to school or whenever I go somewhere, she would always accompany me waiting for transportation. She would always offer me a food before she offers it herself. She would always ask me where I am and scold me for not letting her know about my whereabouts.
These are little things that I often forget to enjoy.
Now, I realize that life is short, the world is aging, and time is fleeting. Hence, I should appreciate these little things... little things that matter.
