Life is a “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” kind of thing.
The more I think of it, the more I’ve come to realize that it really is. Life is really a “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” kind of thing. If that’s what it is, then time shouldn’t be wasted on the silly things like the text message that the cute guy who asked your number didn’t reply to or the argument that you got into with your best friend about sudoku, because in a split second, your entire world could turn upside down.
I’ve come to learn that friends do come and go; it’s just the way of life and you can’t really do anything about it. Life has a funny way of testing you; they take out what’s most important to you and if you want it back, you’ll go to the ends of the Earth to make it happen and if you don’t, everything that was once yours is gone.
Within the past couple of years, I’ve come to learn that things do change and when they do, that moment tends to be a “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” one. I’m not entirely fond of that tactic however it really does show you how to appreciate what you’ve got and not to take anything for granted.
I’ve also learned that there are people out there that have it a lot worse than us, seeing the fact that we complain about how much we hate our lives all the time and whatnot. I think that’s only more of a reason to appreciate what we have.
So as cliché and cheesy as it sounds (I’m not so into this cliché and cheesy stuff so…) , I’ve learned to live in the moment and that life is, in fact, a roller coaster, because you never really know when the roller coaster of life decides to take a drop. And the last thing I’ve come to realize is that life only moves forward, so appreciate what you have now, because you might not have it in the near future.
