Life is short...life is sweet...
Enjoy it as long as you are alive....
What will happen tomorrow, who knows?...Do I know?...Do YOU know?...
Will I be alive to read your posts?
Am I sure to see tomorrow's sunrise?
Am I sure 'my heart will go on and on....?"
Am I sure to wake up fresh and happy sans depression tomorrow?
Will I be alive to enjoy my son's marriage and be able to read stories to my great grandchildren?
Why fret? Why brood? What is ambition? What is career?
What to do? What not to do? How much to save? How much to spend?
Such a short span of life and so many questions and unnecessary tensions!
Who knows if there IS "LIFE AFTER DEATH?" Is this NOT a ONE WAY journey?
Life is treacherous, death is certain...
Let's live as if there is no tomorrow...
Come, bring smile to a crying child's face...Hey you may find GOD in his smile...
Let's forget grudges and 'make up' with old pals...Let's search for 'lost friends" as well...
Let's 'go back' to our old , ailing parents and be their walking sticks...their sunshine...their hopes...Hey, we might never see them, feel them and hug them again...they would be gone one day while we r still running after MIRAGE...
Will it be worth it? When we would want the shelter of their warm embrace...they are gone...
....and we are lonely in our world of achievements and false sense of achievements...CHOICE IS OURS...
HUG THEM TIGHT...LOVE THEM LIKE THERE IS NO TOMORROW...feel their presence...embalm them in your heart and soul...enjoy every festival with them...every occasion with them...
...We owe them our lives and what we are TODAY...
So, come...let's free ourselves from all old shackles and just be US.......TRY TO BE YOU...JUST YOU...ONLY YOU...
Go for Puddle hopping,
catch a butterfly today,
read your parents their favourite bed time story...,
kiss your spouse passionately tonight,
....lose yourself with your kid, your soul tonight...
EMBRACE LIFE...Because...
....Life is treacherous...IT never gives us a second chance...RIGHT?
So go ahead and ....MAKE two cups strong CHAI ,
Grab your soulmate and lose yourself in his eyes...
AND AND AND...
Don't forget to tell someone you love them today...
That someone IS your child, your spouse, your parents, your friends, your teachers, your in-laws, your neighbors...and everyone who has made a difference in your life...even the Pizza guy and the cute sales girl who smiled and helped you...
Hey buddy, STOP AND THINK...BE LIKE THE STAGNANT POOL AND RELAX, EVALUATE AND JUST BE YOU.
