Our perception toward life

Our perception toward life

Why do we think that we have forever? Why do we not comprehend that there is an end and life is more than what we are striving, and living for? Why is it difficult for us to accept that we are not immortals?

We never think about this, as we are busy in our everyday life; everything at present is functioning smoothly, and we do not realize how swiftly time is passing. To think about it, how would we? We were not taught in our school, nor did our academics have this topic. The Art of Living, which is the most important subject of life has always been overshadowed.  I would have never understood unless I bid goodbye to my dad last year. There were lots of questions, emotions without an answer, but this incident gave a reality check about what life eventually comes to. 

It taught the value each day, and to feel blessed about the small things in life, and spread happiness to help smile, and live. Unfortunately, we had to go through this to apprehend what it truly means to live each day to its fullest. The phrase, “life is unpredictable,” makes further sense when we look at those moments when we wait to find the right time to start a deed without realizing that there might not be much time remaining. However, this again does not mean that we should not hope for a better tomorrow. We should dream, make plans and not worry about the end.

What we need to do is very simple. Break our long-term plans in short-term. It is with these small ones, we will feel motivated and happy. Steve Jobs once said if you lived each day as if it was your last, someday you would be right. 

My point here is, if it won’t matter in the future then it should not matter now. We need to live with a bigger picture in mind. The mantra is simple. It is for us to choose from.
