Sometimes in life, we take so many things for granted.
Oftentimes, the things we take for granted in favor of trivial wants are the ones that are the most important.
What happened to Japan should be an eye-opener.
A catalyst for a lot of people to change their ways... their points of view.
When would we realize that most of the things we always needed are already in front of us all this time?
When would we realize that wishing for the whole world does not make any sense unless we have something... or someone to live it for?
Do we realize these things when it's already too late?
For most of us, those that still have the gift of chance...
Hug your parents.
Make up for those times when you've chosen to spend the night partying at your friend's house rather than spend time over dinner with them.
Say "I love you" to them while they can still hear it. While you still can.
Appreciate the simple laughs you have with real friends.
See beyond the superficial and appreciate people for the way they are.
It doesn't matter if you are hanging out with the coolest group of people in school or if you are on the VIP list of the most happening bars in town. If we genuinely share a moment in our life with another human being, that moment in itself is priceless.
Treasure that moment and look back on it with a smile on your face.
Love your life.
Embrace it fully and passionately.
It is a privilege to be able to wake up everyday and discover the beauty of being able to cry and laugh, to think and reason, to love and to be loved.
We are lucky. Let's not waste that time and carry that what if in our hearts.
It's now or never.
