Life is nothing other than passing time. Moments are just moments. Nothing really lasts forever. Love is found, then lost. Families created, they come and then go. Friendships are formed, then disappear with time. Why? We are created individually, to live our own life.
From childhood to old age, when you look back at your life, it all comes down to every decision you’ve made. Choices you’ve chosen.
That’s a hard one to come to terms with isn’t it? We’ve all made so many decision we wish we hadn’t.
Did you let her drive away upset? Tears rolling down her eyes gasping for air. The next time you saw her she was still, cold, laying in a room with the monitor turned off because it was too late. Did you not tell him I love you, I need you? Now he’s walking down the aisle with someone else. 10 years have passed, your daughter who you disowned now has 2 beautiful twins graduating kindergarten that you’ve never met. You only heard about the wedding, you only heard about your first grandchildren being borne. You hear everything from afar. Why? Because she fell in love with another woman. You scream and shout when you shouldn’t. Your child spills a drink and he’s scared shitless because next comes yelling or even worst, your hand.
We make so many wrong choices. No regrets? That’s a hard one because I’ve made so many. These moments are just moments but they stay in the heart. Years later I still cry, wishing I was a little easier on my child. Years later I still wished I said all the things I didn’t.
The cliché, “Everything happens for a reason,” is so very true. We’re perfectly imperfect. We have two choices in this life: Learn from our mistakes and grow into a better person or stay bitter, soaking in all your sorrows.
I still feel pain, maybe that’s why I hold on to the regrets. Maybe I’m not there yet. Not able to accept that at one point I chose to make all those mistakes.
All I know is that life does go on. Everything does happen for a reason and moments are moments. Life is just time passing. That’s why you and I need to enjoy the now more than ever. Life gets so damn crazy, but just remember to stay grounded. Always try to be a better person and remember what’s important. The little as well as the big moments are memories to treasures. Say I LOVE YOU, spend time with your child and play video games even though you have a house to clean. Say I LOVE YOU to that one person who makes you feel so safe and secure…so loved. Make time for family and friends. You don’t know how much time you really have with anyone. Live life, do all the things you want to do and ALWAYS stay EXCITED.
Yes, moments are just moments. Forgive yourself for your mistakes, grow beautifully, give freely and NEVER settle.
