Fill years with life, not life with years!
Once upon a time lived an old fisherman. He lived alone in an old and dilapidated house. He cleaned the house and kept it in solid shape by itself, despite his age. He spent the entire life of the living in the same way : catch fish, sell fish, clean the house and again.Just like in the circle .
But, his legs became heavy ,weakened his eyesight. He could no longer tossed his nets .
He felt that he is closer to the last days.
One day after awakening ,he felt pain in the body and he could not get out of bed. Tears were streaming down his cheeks . In despair, he decided that he will not spend the last days in the house.
He decided to spend just one day on the way he want. His last day.
That idea gave him the strength to stand up, to jump to his feet and ran to the city.He had several traders who owed him the money, and he went to collect it. With that money he bought a couple of bottles of good wine, food and repaired his boat.
He sailed on his last trip !
Far, far, in the open sea,fishermen found the old man with a smile on his lips .On the old boat, he was engraved the lesson he learned from his life :
Fill years with life, not life with years.
Sometimes we must spend our whole life to learn something. But with an open mind we are on the speed track towards enlightenment .
You know, we will come at the end of our life, one day. We will ask ourselves :
– Have I used all the opportunities ?
– What am I leaving behind?
– What I remember ?
It would be great to answer on all questions with smile. Because that will be a sing that your life made sense.
Someone once said :“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
How often you are doing things for yourself !? Life is magical circle. Indeed life is Copy/Paste. If I want to show you your next day, I’ll look for your today’s schedule. Rising-Dressing-Working-Resting, and again Rising-Dressing-Working-Resting and again.
To have fantastic memories, you must do something fantastic, something different. It’s very sad if you can put your whole year in a single sentence .You are born to be great.
Live now my friend, create memories .Don’t regret one day,breath now, act now because You Can Do It !!!
