You Only Live Once (YOLO), that is what today's generations' mantra is about life. And same goes with me.. and I think it should be for every single person.
All of us are blessed with just one life and we get to it live fully, then why not make the most of it? Instead of procrastinating it to some other event in your life, why not just do it now.. Live like there's no tomorrow! At least that is what I think.
The recent earthquake in Nepal, shattered the entire country.. thousands of people got homeless within a few seconds, many lost their families and are orphans now! Almost everyone of them must have had a few plans for their future, their to-do list for their life.. and all of it destroyed in one go.. Unfair.. isn't it?
I had to travel on Thursday in the coming week and it was Saturday, when I was scheduling my work accordingly and planning to get take classes on Sunday as well (there's any ways extra classes on Sunday, but I was going to take it for first time, as I had to wind up the syllabus within the given time). Moreover, I had one of the student's textbook which I took from him on Friday, and was suppose to return on Saturday as he was going out of station that day in evening and would return back in town after a while and I took the book with full surety that I would return it to him on Saturday itself. But Saturday was a bad day for many.. coz earthquake happened and destroyed the whole country (I'm sure you must be checking it all out on the news channels). But as normal individuals, all of us must have planned their work for the weekend that wouldn't have been executed due to the natural calamity if you're in the proximity of the affected area. Like wise it happened with me.
a. classes got cancelled for the day
b. I couldn't return the book to my student
c. No classes were conducted on Sunday as well as Monday
d. Now, will have to take classes next Sunday
All of us have our hearts and prayers with the victims of the earthquake and a lot of us must have already done what we could do on our behalf to help them out. The point is nothing in life is certain and sure. You never know what might happen to you the very next moment and there' nothing one can do to avoid such situation. And so the best thing that you can do is to go by what your heart says, do what you truly want to do.. who knows what wonders it may do.. you just have this moment, live it to the full. Go out, make new friends, read a book, date, see the stars, travel the world, do the wackiest of things if you feel like it, pursue a hobby that you love.. and the list goes on and one and on!
Never stop dreaming and NEVER EVER think it’s too late.. coz it’s better to Late than to be NEVER!
