“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.”
― Bill Keane
Today is a gift of God, the gift which gave us our lives. We run all our lives to accomplish something that does not matter in the end. Sometimes it is money or other material things. In all of this what we forget is ourselves and our family. We forget that it is not always money but the time, the quality time spent with our loved ones because the only thing that never comes back is the time.
What we have lost is lost but what we got is all we got. We often remember the golden days of our lives and let me bet those are the days where you have had fun with your people. The people you loved and they loved you back unconditionally.
Ask someone who has no one with them at the time of need, ask the importance of a friend to someone who does not have a friend, ask the importance of family to an orphan. We all have our families who love us unconditionally and these days due to any reason you have got to spend with them but if you choose to waste these days grieving for your work or other matters then let me tell you they aren’t going to come back.
These days when people are going insane because of staying home, there are families who are enjoying their time together either cooking or doing other stuff. It is what is called spending quality time. There might be some members of your family who are at some other place but we have the technology, talk, video chat with them.
There are many options instead of saying no. Not everyone finds a way in the darkest of forests, it is the one who never stops finding, finding the hope, the hope which helps him keep going.
One speciality of time is that it never stops whether it is good or bad it will pass. So this time too shall pass. It is possible that it might stay for a little bit long but it will pass.
It will pass and the roads which are deserted now will again be crowded with vehicles, the continuous honking in a traffic jam will again hurt your ear, you will again be in the office where you might hate your boss but love your work, your office desk will be waiting for you to work on it, you will again drink that special ginger tea from the peon of your office, those black coffees to stay you awake will again be made continuously, your ears will again be able to hear the gossips which will entertain you for a moment, you again will have those rides on your favourite scooty, you again will be called endlessly to ask the menu for dinner. We will do everything again but till then enjoy what you have got today.
Enjoy the life which you have over others who have lost it, value it and live present joyfully, follow your passions which were forgotten due to your busy schedule, do exercise which you weren’t able to give the time when you had an office, do everything you love because we won’t be getting these days again to make lifetime memories.
These days will be part of history so do we, we are fighting staying inside our homes, following all the instructions given by the government. So the only thing I want to say in the end is, thank god for what you have got and enjoyed every day of it.
