Life's Too Short Read Count : 57

Category : Diary/Journal

Sub Category : N/A
Every minute, someone leaves this world behind. Someone we know, someone we love, or someone who is a stranger to us. But someone leaves every minute of everyday. 

I am also waiting in line whether I am consciously aware of it or not.  Eventually my number will be called. Maybe today, maybe tomorrow, maybe thirty years from today, or maybe even right after I finish writing this post. Fact is, I don't know when it will be my time to leave. 

In this vast world, I will never know how many people have left before me and I will never know how many will leave after me. 

I cannot move to the back of the line to buy time, I cannot step out of the line to run and hide, and I cannot avoid the line to try to escape. Whether I like it or not, I am in the line. Whether I like it or not, I will leave this world eventually. So while I wait in line, why not make the waiting count. 

I shall make every moment count by getting my priorities right, by making time for people who matter to me, by making time for myself, by making time to pursue my passion and by living my dream. 

I shall make my gifts known, I shall make a nobody feel like a somebody by uplifting, motivating, inspiring, and liberating. I shall touch as many lives as I possibly can. 

I shall make a difference. I shall make my voice heard by being the voice for the voiceless, the helpless, and the weak. I shall make someone smile each day and make the change that this world needs.

I shall encourage love and spread love. I shall forgive and forget, make peace with people who have wronged me and those I have wronged. I will also make peace with myself and hold no regrets.  

When my number is up, I hope I will be ready. 
When my number is up, I hope to leave in style. 
When my number is up, I hope to leave an outstanding legacy.
