Tomorrow Isn’t Promised
Life’s not too long..
It’s too short
Life isn’t promised
Tomorrow isn’t promised
Not even today is promised
Life is fragile … It’s precious
Life is a miracle… It’s beautiful
In no way is living perfect
but having LIFE…THAT’S PERFECT!!!..”
Again and again I come across words that make me appreciate life in its awesome manifestation. When you realize that nothing is promised, you cherish every single moment that is given to you. You see beauty in things, events, and relationships as they exist. Just simply exist!
Yesterday I was staring in the face of death. Actually, those were eyes I was staring at but, for a little more dramatic effect, I am saying – I was staring Death right in the face. Well, ok, it wasn’t death with its awesome black hoodie and bony palms sticking out of sleeves but it was a powerful representation of it – a little dead sparrow (a baby).
That was a huge emotional moment for me as I was looking at my cat holding a dead bird in her mouth and a lifeless body of a little unprotected fragile baby bird. I couldn’t believe that a cat that I love so much could do such a thing as take somebody’s life.
I do not tolerate any bullying or violence, and there I was looking at my cat being proud of her kill. The truth is, we do not know if she actually killed the bird or just found its lifeless body and was claiming the kill, but it was too much for me to take. I started crying like somebody just killed the most precious thing in my life. I felt such a deep pain and my heart was sinking…
Yeah, lack of chocolate or sugar!
Moments like this just remind you of your mortality and the fact that you should eat that damn piece of chocolate when you want it as tomorrow is not promised, neither is today.
Every day is a gift, every breath is a gift. Yes, no one wants to think about the dark side. However, if you have not been confronted with the dark side and haven’t had your face rubbed in it; you are just wasting your life and your relationships with people.
