Time waits for no one

The sudden passing of a friend a couple of weeks ago got me thinking…

After the initial shock and sadness, my next feeling was that of injustice. I felt this was unfair. Unfair on him, unfair on his family, unfair on his young wife and two young children, unfair on all his friends and loved ones. However much I tried, I could not make sense of it. After a while I came to the conclusion that it is not something I can make sense of and that I just need to live with that, but I can learn a lesson from it. The lesson I learnt is that life is so short that we need to constantly remember the important things while we are around. What are the important things? Being happy! Doing what we love doing. Being with the people we love. Being with people who make us happy. Not giving importance to things which are beyond our control or things which don’t make us better people.

We can’t take time for granted. We all have an expiry date. We don’t know when that is, so we need to enjoy life while we still can. We need to use the time we have wisely! And by that I don’t mean keep busy and don’t sleep! On the contrary, sleep, if that means you are more alive when you are awake! I just think our time (at least most of it) should be spent doing what we choose to do. Tick tock, tick tock…
