Cherishing your Today

Did you ever realize nothing is permanent? By nothing I mean, nothing, not even the best of things, relationships and people. Gradually we lose everything in life. By saying that I have no intentions to make you feel depressed but I just want everyone to take some time out of busy lives, to stop for a while and think. Are you doing it right? Are you prioritizing things the way they are supposed to be?

Well, give it a thought, what if someday you woke up and don’t have those caring words which start up your day? What if that someone who was even ready to handle your worst moods is no more around you? What if that smile which assured you in life is nowhere to be found? What if those blessings are not there on your success and those supporting words during times of your failure? Will other things in life hold any meaning if you have regrets surrounding you that you could never live and cherish those moments, you could not fulfill their innocent wishes of getting your attention and time?

Nobody will want to live a life full of regrets so it’s better to do it now and don’t keep anything pending for future. Mumma wanted you to take a leave and stay beside her instead of going to that meeting with an ‘important’ client? Do it now, give her your full attention, praise her food, her efforts and say a thank you to her with a warm hug. Dad wanted you to be with him on his farewell day at office and you couldn’t cause of workload? Well, tell him you are a proud son, take him out, tell him you love him, and buy his favorite colon. Your sister who is married off or is studying somewhere away, give her a surprise visit on a casual day, nothing would make her happier!  Remember your best friend, you wanted to meet them but could not because of your busy lives, take a day or two off and go on an outing with them. Call your cousins you haven’t been talking lately, remember they were your first best friends, surprise people up by sending a card on their birthdays; believe me you will make them just too happy more than any precious gift can do.

You don’t need to do something too big but rather small and meaningful things to bring huge smiles on the face of people you love and who love you back. That doesn’t mean leave your work, but balance up things in life. When you fall sick, you need medicines, your work pays for them and more than that you need someone’s care, your actions earn that someone! It’s just as simple as that. So think and act it doesn’t take too much of efforts but just a feeling of doing it to make wonders happen in life. Never be too absent from your loved ones life so instead of missing you they actually learn to be without you. Cherish the people you have, value them before you lose them. Gear up and get going. 😉
