In a span of 2 years, I have seen so many of our dear ones leave this world.
It started with my MIL’s sister with cancer followed by my dad’s sister, cancer again. Then after a while we lost AS’s grandma due to old age and them my mum’s sister (cancer) and then very recently my dad’s brother (kidney problem).
Going through all this grief in such a short period of time, I started thinking about death more seriously.
I know death is the only thing which we all know is certain but still when our near and dear ones pass away, we are left with pain and grief. Just because we all know everyone is going to leave this earth doesn’t make our pain any easier.
But at the same time I am appreciating life more. I am trying to enjoy time with friends and family doing things I love to do and living my life to the fullest so if I don’t wake up tomorrow, I know I will have no regret.
It is definitely lot harder to do than I have planned but I am going to keep this in mind.
Life is definitely unpredictable and too short for egos in relationships.
Surrounding myself with like mined and positive people will make it worth living. I am making the most of my time, saying what I want to and doing what I want to do. Nobody should be taken for granted and it works both way.
Someone’s death is a reminder for us that life is shorter than we think.
Hope I could provoke your thought about life and death and see this world slightly differently as no one knows what will happen tomorrow.
