It’s only when you witness death with your own eyes from 0 distance. Or watch someone getting caught between life and death, that you realize just how fragile we are. And how very oblivious we are to the smallest things in our lives.
A friendship, a love interest, a simple letter. A picture or a poem from a dear friend. Or just a good did by a stranger… There are so many things we miss on a daily basis because we think nothing of them. Until it’s too late, and when you see it you realize how much of a fool you are not to spare an extra few seconds or minutes, or perhaps even hours doing something for, or with the people who are close to you. Or not close. Help an old lady carry her groceries, or help a man that tripped, get up on his feet and calm him with a few good words.
Don’t be oblivious to the things around you… react to them because there won’t be another moment like that one… Every second in our lives is unique in its own way. Don’t miss it.
