Seize The Day

Recent events have gotten me thinking:
Life is so precious and fleeting - at any moment, something could happen and that would be it.

No one is given any guarantees.
There's no certificate stating how many years you'll get on this earth and how you will have to leave it eventually...

There are also so many evils out there, waiting to hurt you if you give them a chance by lowering your guard - whether it's the deadly kiss of cancer if you don't take care of your health or the wretched hands of a disturbed pervert if you don't take care of your surroundings...

:(

Some of us suffer from encounters with these evils...
... while some of us are lucky to go through life (relatively) unscathed, but watch in pain as our loved ones get hurt.

So what can we do?
Live each day to the fullest,
... hold on to the people we love,
... guard, cherish and take care of them (and ourselves) as best as humanly possible,
... and well, just pray for the best, I guess.

(I hope all of you will have a happy and safe weekend ahead)


Hugs,
J

(OMG. I sound like a Hallmark card - so corny... Arrgh)
(Don't get me wrong though, I mean every word sincerely and truly, 100%! *more hugs*)

life is always precious and unpredictable too.. one may not know what will happen da next minute not to mention da next day.. i've learnt alot from my past experiences and those lessons eventually taught me to be a better person....somehow i believe that it's more than enough to have a happy family with good friends around and of course being healthy too.. money can't buy lifetime happiness :)

Having a happy family life and good friends around is absolutely priceless...

Somehow, I don't think I'm going to make my millions this way....

I've learned that everyday one should reach out & touch someone. People love that human touch - holding hands, a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. :p

Take care & Hugs!
