Before too late

Imagine the few moments before your death. The few moments when your whole life will flash before your eyes. Is it worth watching?

Odds are that you’ll feel regret. All the “what ifs” that can no longer be acted upon, all your broken dreams and hopes and ideas. All the happiness that you could’ve created. All the help you could’ve given others.

The stories you could’ve written, the people you were too proud or too scared to love, all the moments when you kept quiet or walked away.

Every single thing you ever gave up on.

That’s what’s going to flash before your eyes.

Because you kept that fire inside you…

You kept your light to yourself…

You let other people talk you out of your dreams. You let their own fear infect your soul.

You let the world make you bitter…

And on your deathbed, you realize. You finally get it…

That you wasted so much time wishing you were someone else, so much time waiting for things to be handed to you on a silver platter. All this precious time, trying to run away from your problems, begging this cruel world to just leave you alone.

To all this, I have these words to say: the life you want has to be conquered. The future you think you deserve has to be won.

One battle at a time.

One day at a time.

It’s easy to sit in bed and dream about the perfect life, but there will come a time, usually when it’s too late, when dreaming won’t be enough anymore.

Act now, before it’s too late.

One thought on “Before too late

  1. Cristian,

    Imagine the few moments before your death. Imagine those few moments when you will experience your whole life flashing before your eyes.

    These moment will be worth watching.

    You will know satisfaction. You will have acted on all your “what ifs”, dreams, hopes and ideas. You will have created happiness. You will have given help to others.

    You will have written your stories.

    You will have overcome your fear and pride and you will have loved but more than this – you will have spoken out for and stood by those you love.

    You will have moved forward steadfastly and will have won.

    That is what is going to flash before your eyes.

    You took that fire, which burned inside you, and you used it to change the world.

    You recognised that light within you, and you shared it so that you could bring benefit to others.

    You dreamed, and you worked to make those dreams come true. You used your courage lift you to higher places.

    You experienced the trials of the world and then used your sweetness to overcome them and make the world into a better place.

    On your deathbed, you will realise that you made it!

    That you gave over your time to being the best that you could be, so much time realising the wealth of character and virtue that you had. All that time facing your circumstances and opportunities and thanking the world that you had the strength to make something good out of them.

    To all this, I have these words to say: you recognised the life you wanted and you seized it with your passion. You knew the future you deserved and you won it with your love.

    One battle at a time – you triumphed.

    One day at a time – you loved.

    You strode into the world with your dreams of a perfect life and you made all these dreams come true.

    You acted – and it was good.

    Respectfully – Robert Day.
