To be able to wake up in the morning and breathe the air around us is a blessing that very few of us are truly grateful for. The speed of life at present and the way things are have made our priorities geared towards survival. Surviving in this world that we are surely bound to leave one day. The irony lies in the fact that everyone of us knows that death is real. When it will happen, no one has an answer for that but why are we focusing most if not all of our energy to ‘live life to the fullest’? Get as much money as we can. Acquire as much material things as we possible. It is not like we could bring them all to the grave. Besides, what will be the point of even doing that?
But if we can help others – those around us, touch as many lives as possible, that will continue to live beyond our death. Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves and declare to the world that we do not want the joys here. But let us do our best to live a life where we can enjoy what this world has to offer and at the same time be of service to others.
