IF THE PAST WAS OFFERED TO ME AGAIN AND THE CHANCE OF GOOD AND ILL BEFORE ME SET, WOULD I ACCEPT THE PLEASURE WITH THE PAIN OR DARE TO WISH WE NEVER MET? AUGUSTA, LADY GREGORY
These are the kind of questions that make you stop for a moment and wonder “What have I done with my life in the past year?” If given the chance right now to go back to the very beginning of this year and re-live every single thing that you have done, every moment that you have gone through, without of course the opportunity to alter anything, would you walk proudly into the realm of times along the forgotten or cower at the mere mention of the possibility?
If you carried out a survey at this particular moment asking the people close to you even those whom you met and only spoke to once and they had no choice but to be honest, What would they say about you?. Would they put your character into words with little efforts and without hesitation because your impact on them was positive and memorable or strive to find words that are otherwise not what the society deems insulting? Will they be enthusiastic to go through every memorable second with you or will they hope that someday you will only be a fleeting thought, an insignificant haze in the back of their mind?
You may believe that the world will always be there, that there shall always be another time to right the wrongs not realizing that each time you go to sleep is a day that you take for granted and may wake up one day and realize you have nothing sensible to say about yourself. Only it will be too late!
Therefore strive to live each moment and carry out every single task with complete abandon all the while making an improvement, however light it may seem in another life with this comes true happiness.
