Time….just looks so harmless….it ticks past moment by moment…getting you through another day, then another and another….and in the middle of the hustle and bustle of our lives….we never realise the value of time….of how precious it is….each and every moment….!!!!
I remember reading a poem during my childhood days….which has taken its place in heart since the very first day I read it….. it goes down like….
And this poem….its just amazing….with a little words it just yells upon the fact that time may look harmless yet it is extremely powerful….it can make a person or break one…..it just merely depends on how wise a person is to value a moment.
Because you never think that the last time is the last time, you think there will be more. You think you have forever, but you dont….!!!!
Each time I pass in front of my school, I feel nostalgic of the wonderful childhood days….all moments so beautiful….the friends I could never imagine my life without n wish could some day reunite again….those classmates who were just annoying pieces of shit but made school bearable….those teachers who would come to speak in classes in god knows what language which made no sense, and to yell at us, and only to make us wish that she left a bit sooner….😂😂 and those long assemblies with the principal just sucking the brains out of innocent students….😂😂 then, bunking classes, backbitching, eating lunch in between classes, submitting projects a week later than the last day of submission….and so much more.
From the very day I was left at the school, with me crying in my parents arms…. “school nai jaana….😭” to the last day of school….everything is just so memorable….that was just a time….never did we realise that those few years would give us lifetime of memories….😍
And then walking into another yet a very important phase of life….I remember walking in through the gates of college, tears rolling down my cheeks, because home’s a bliss, family eternal love, and imagining even a day without them was impossible….feeling homesick and running back home every few days…..classmates again shit, hostel a prison, lectures suffocating, college an unknown planet….😂😂
And then time passed by….and I realised what a beautiful journey this is….and how a few years later….each and every day spent here would make my eyes moist with nostalgia and my heart warm with the beautiful memories….😍
Never did I realise that how soon this prison turned into second home, the shitty classmates a family, lectures worth remebering, teachers that annoy even today but would be remembered later….how this place gave me new bonds, new connections, new friendships, new love, new hopes, new life and brand new memories to cherish for lifetime❤
Thus, dear friends….time is too short….it will just run away in the blink of an eye….day by day, days will pass, years will pass away leaving only memories in hand….and regrets to have been able to live those moments once again….why wait for that regret to arrive when you still have this moment in hand….
“The thing is, you won’t know its the last time, until there are no more times….and even then, it will take a while for you to realise it. So, while you are living in these times,remember there are only so many of them, and when they are gone, you will yearn for just one more day of them. For one last time….“
Just live in the moment. No matter what the circumstances are, however hard the life is, how ever tough the time may be….just live every piece of it. Make good memories to cherish throughout life…..so that when you remember them years later, they leave tears of happiness in your eyes and not the tears of grief….😊
Life is travelled once, today’s moments become tomorrow’s memories. Enjoy every moment, good or bad, because the gift of life is a life itself.
And my dear friends, since Life is no fairytale, there are no fairy godmothers to make you return back in time….live in today, as there may be no tomorrow….kal ho na ho….!!
Dream as if you will live forever, Live as if you will die tomorrow….!!!!😊
