The last words I heard from my father, when he didn’t know he was going to die, were, “Don’t be in such a hurry this time!” Four days later, he was dead.
None of us know when our time will come, we just know it WILL come. Who are we cheating by not thinking it could come tomorrow? Or today? Or within hours… minutes… seconds…? Who are we cheating?
Isn’t it only our selves?
If you think you’re going to live forever, it gives you more time to excuse yourself for not doing NOW what you should be doing. That ‘thing’ you’ve wanted to start, why not start it now? That dream you’ve been putting off pursuing, why not do it NOW? Those things you’ve wanted to say, or do, or write, why put it off…?
You only have NOW.
If not now, then when?
Let me tell you a cold, hard, truth, no matter what you think you believe, YOU WILL NOT LIVE FOREVER.
