On this Earth, for most human beings, comes unannounced and as a complete surprise!!
Human beings have many priorities at the many pedestals they stand upon, in the various stages of their lives.
In the pedestal of childhood, the most important stage is to make new friends and the highest priority besides cakes and chocolates is to play outdoor games.
In the pedestal of adolescence, the most important stage is to leave home to go to University for most people, and the highest priority is to enjoy everything.
In the pedestal of early adulthood, the most important stage is to achieve in education and the highest priority is to be independent.
In the pedestal of adulthood, the most important stage is to find a life partner and the highest priority is to live a happy marriage.
In the pedestal of middle-age, the most important stage is to keep the family happy and the highest priority is to find our own happiness despite the odds facing us.
In the pedestal of old age, the most important stage is the wish to keep ourselves healthy and the highest priority is to make quick sense of the constant rows due to generation gaps inside or outside our homes and resort to calmness.
In the pedestal of ripe old age, the most important stage is to wait for the lock to lift and the soul to leave the room it has been occupying and the highest priority is to wish for no untold stories, unsaid love notes,unsaid Sorry, unsaid Thank you, unsaid compliments, unsaid acknowledgements, unspoken words, unhealed wounds and unforgiven people.
Isn’t it too much to do on the last day?? The best part of life is, we are unaware of the last working day. ( Applies to Corporate too… but we can always find another first day at a new company, so it’s fine in the job scenario.)
We need to settle the dues here, in this lifetime, else it will come back with compounded interest. We are happy with the good things coming back manifold… but the regrets; we do not want…
So, why not do these every day?
- Say Sorry if you must — Today.
- Pronounce Love to people, if you have not — Today.
- Share your thoughts if you are keeping them locked. — Today.
- Forgive someone, if you are angry with someone. — Today.
- Say ‘Thank you’, if you had missed it — Today.
- Write an acknowledgment, if you have not so far. — Today.
- Return a call, if you must.- Today.
- Let it go! if you are holding on to an unpleasantness or sadness. — Today.
- Live life with your deepest sense of ‘being’ minus the negativity. — Today. Right now!!!
What WE ‘Do’ is all that matters in a bigger scheme of things.
Let’s make our last working day on the Earth easy for our minds, simply by ‘DOING’ today.
