Life Passing Us By

LIFE PASSING US BY

Today we have higher buildings and wider highways,
But shorter temperaments and narrower points of view.

We spend more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses, but smaller families.
We have more compromises, but less time.
We have more knowledge, but less judgment.
We have more medicines, but less health.

We reached the Moon and came back,
But we find it troublesome to cross our own street and meet our neighbors.

We have conquered the outer space, but not our inner space.
We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk much, we love only a little, and we hate too much.
We have higher income, but less morals.

These are times with more liberty, but less joy.
With much more food, but less nutrition.
These are days in which two salaries come home, but divorces increase.
These are times of finer houses, but more broken homes.

That’s why I propose that as from today:

Use your crystal goblets.  Do not save your best perfume, and use it every time you feel you want it.

Take out from your vocabulary phrases like “One of these days” and “someday”. Let’s write that letter we thought of writing “One of these days”.

You do not keep anything for a special occasion,
Because every day that you live is a special occasion.
Search for knowledge, read more,
Sit on your front porch and admire the view without paying attention to the needs.
Pass more time with your family, eat your favorite food, visit the place you love.

Life is a chain of moments of enjoyment, it isn’t only survival.
Let’s tell our families and friends, how much we love them.

Never pass up a chance at adding laughter and joy to your life.
Every day, hour, and minute are special, and you never know if it will be your last.

If you’re too busy to take some minutes to tell someone you love them, and you tell yourself that you will “one of these days”,  just remember that “one of these days” can be
very far away, and you may not be there to see it.
