When all you have is today!

“I don’t want to live anymore”, said the healthy but tired soul.

“I don’t want to die, please save me”, said the dying, wrecked soul..

Yet before we ever acknowledge the desire to live, dawns a realisation that someone has already finished writing the climax to our ending, as if to remind us that life works as per his plans. As if to remind us that being just a drop in the ocean doesn’t mean we can control him, who contains the ocean!

Every passing year is a gentle reminder that my days are now numbered, I can be certain of now but not tomorrow then why do my thoughts only think about what could be, and not what is?

Long pause…..! Imagine it…! Take a deep breath, think… Didn’t you ever feel it at some point in your life? It is anything but depressing, it’s the poignant truth! Life, finally looks more precious than all the materialistic things hoarded over the years.

When I see people succumbing to covid 19 I am scared, for tomorrow is a distant thought. All the dreams and all the plans may never be accomplished. What is, is now! If that’s what it is then I’d start focussing on the small feats.

Small feats that give big joys like making my daughter smile, investing time in her growth, being there for her everyday, like there’s no tomorrow!
