You will not live for ever

You will not live for ever. Life doesn’t rhyme. Say what you want say. Do what you want to do. Be true to yourself. In a few years when you and me will be gone none of this will matter. No one will remember. I always say to myself when something bad happens: In one year you will go back to the memory lane and you will laugh at this moment. You will truly laugh at it. And it happens over and over again. A bad day does not define you. Forgive yourself. Love yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be kind to others. I can not stress enough the importance of loving oneself and the other. For me this is where it all begins. The miracle of life, the supremacy of our existence.

So today. Today is a new day. Owe it. Do what makes you happy. Laugh out loud if you feel like it. Dance in the rain. Say I love you. Be kind to yourself. Be kind to the people around you. Accept what you can not change. Change what you can. Wonder about things. Read a new book. Let yourself go. Fall in love. Go for a long walk. Talk with a stranger. Forgive yourself. Believe that everything happens for a reason. Realize that you can change the course of life. Be good to your body. Look at the sky. Realize how small you are and yet how much of a difference you can make in other people’s lives. Go on an adventure. Take a break. Breath. Embrace yourself. Try your best. Be a real human being.

And if all the above is overwhelming it is fine. Take one small step at a time.

You can just start by looking in the mirror this morning and say: “I love you. You are wonderful. Today is going to be a good day!”. 

You wake up every day and you forget how important is that you do wake up. I lost so many people this year. Awfully too many people. Too many people in such a short while. 2019 has been brutal. I received some news recently. The news no one ever wants to receive.

Yesterday was a bad day. Somehow between the news and my reality I completely lost it. I was laughing while all I wanted to do was scream. I was lost and angry. How can good people leave us. How can they just let go like this. Today is a new day. And while I carry the sadness inside me I also carry her beautiful face in my head. My life seems easier today. I am just grateful I am here. I am alive. Something so simple and yet something we take for granted. I know the importance of living in here and now. To take one day at a time. To live and strive. To realize that you have one life, one day, one moment. We think that we are going to live for ever. We do not say the things we want to say. We do not do the things we want to do. We do not live the life we want to live. We are not the people we want to be. We let time slip away from our hands like we have been gifted it forever. Time is relative but yet so important. Know the importance of living in here and now. At the end of the day we are all going to die. I am not pessimistic, I am just a realist. You have one mission in this life. Live it to fullest. Do the best you can. Be grateful. Owe it. And remember whatever challenge you are facing today it is going to be ok.
